HAPPY TURKEY DAY!

Happy Turkey Day, you little turkeys out there! Our little turkeys had a gobble of a good time. We had created our own little Cookie Turkeys: using Oreo cookies, Rollo’s, malt balls and candy corn for our edible decoration and created pine cone turkey centerpieces to take home. For our events; we played the game: “Turkey-Turkey”, winning a prize bag, and then we sat down to savor a yummy feast of turkey, olives, raisins, mixed nuts, blueberries, juicy apples, cheddar cheese cubes, fresh grapes, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, mandarin oranges, frosted harvest cookies, brownie bites, cornbread, pumpkin pie, cranberry juice and eggnog. And then we got to relax our little turkey bellies by watching A Charlie Brown’s Thanksgiving and The Mayflower Voyagers. This year I am thankful to all of my past preschool parents who have supported me on my relocation to Chico, their kids who I miss every day and to my new preschool parents who have been super supportive and conscientious, raising incredible, funny and intelligent little turkeys; full of character and charm. I am grateful to all of you and look forward to the year ahead. Thank you!!!

 

HaPpY HaLlOwEeN!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all you little monsters out there! We had another successful HALLOWEEN BASH in the KIDS FIRST Teddy Bear Class! We heard our hilarious Skeleton Hiccups book, and then the shenanigans began. We danced to the Monster Mash at our Pumpkin Walk contest, winning a pumpkin flashlight, played a Witch Hat Ring Toss Game, earning a Treat Bag, and then spun around in circles for our Pin the Nose on the Big Orange Pumpkin, earning a Treat Cup! The Purple People Eater, Witch Doctor and Walking Through the Cemetery songs brought us into the Halloween spirit while we feasted on our Halloween appropriate snacks; red delicious apples, black bat raisins, orange pumpkin Jell-O, purple people eater Juice,  pumpkin patch brownies, Halloween monster cupcakes and sprinkled cookies. And then winding down the activities with Alvin & the Chipmunks meet the Wolfman made it all that.

Preschool Graduation 2017

Preschool Graduation 2017 (eighteenth annual commencement) of The Teddy Bear Class rocked! What an awesome, magical and extraordinary celebration. Congratulations to all you brilliant kindergartners to be, Violet, Jordan & Brody; and to our Intermediate level genius, Dante (we missed you!); and our outstanding First Grader, Henry. I know you all will succeed in life! Here’s to your bright futures ahead. I feel so grateful to have had such compassionate, intelligent, conscientious parents with creative, talented, funny and bright children. I feel very welcome in Chico and I’m super excited to be teaching in such a lovely and friendly community.

Hawaiian Luau Celebration!

Aloha!!! Our end of the school year HAWAIIAN LUAU for all children who’ve earned their “Pin of Honor” was a total success!
With traditional Hawaiian music playing in the background we began our festivities by playing with Beach Balls and then creating fabulous looking Sun Visors earning a Treat Bag & Fish Fruit Gummies. And then we participated in a Limbo event & performed our Hula Dance routine. After that, we sang our wonderful Humuhumunukunukuapu’a song about the famous Hawaiian fish while wearing our Fish Hats earning a special Solar Dancing Whale. This led us to our feast of Hawaiian Pizza, Mini Corn Dogs, Barbecue Chips, Macaroni Salad, Whale Crackers, Colorful Jell-O, Fruit Kabobs, Sprinkled Cupcakes, Lemonade and Hawaiian Punch. After our Hawaiian feast, we relaxed and watched a funny Beach Movie: The Reef—a fantastic end to a remarkable celebration. Aloha!
