Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Turkey Day, Little Turkeys! First we created pine-cone turkey centerpieces to take home. Then we played the game: “Turkey-Turkey Whose Got The Turkey”, and then we sat down to savor a yummy feast of turkey, cranberry, olives, raisins, mixed nuts, blueberries, juicy apples, cheddar cheese cubes, cherry tomatoes, baby carrots, oranges, cookies, Fruit Roll-Ups, brownie bites, pumpkin & berry pie (with whipped cream), 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 for all of my preschool parents (past and present) 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. And a special thank you to Christian Heather Waddle for my lovely sunflowers. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!! I am grateful to all of you and look forward to the year ahead. 🙂



Happy Halloween!

On Wednesday, October 31st 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 Walking Through the Cemetery Song at our Pumpkin Walk contest, winning a pumpkin flashlight, mini pumpkin & bubbles, 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 Monster Mash songs brought us into the Halloween spirit while we feasted on our Halloween appropriate snacks; red delicious bobbing apples dipped in caramel, black bat raisins, red vampire Jell-O, green monster applesauce pouches, purple people eater Juice, Orange pumpkin cupcakes, monster cookies and chips. And then winding down the activities with Alvin & the Chipmunks meet the Wolf man made it all that.


Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day Party 2018! We’re on it—celebrating the 4th of July in style. After we engaged in a rollicking patriotic cupcake Memory Game and a festive patriotic Balloon Toss game (earning a treat bag of fun and glow sticks) we celebrated by decorating a patriotic flag cake for our traditional Independence Day picnic to enjoy along with submarine sandwiches, barbecue chips, watermelon chunks, yogurt pretzels and fruit punch. Have a fabulous 4th of July everyone!

Preschool Graduation Ceremony 2018

Best. Ceremony. Ever. Thank you to every parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling and friend who showed up to celebrate their Teddy Bear Class student graduate.

Hawaiian Luau 2018

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 Hula Hoops and creating fabulous looking Sun Visors earning a Treat Bag. 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 variety of ocean creatures. This led us to our feast of Hawaiian Pizza, Barbecue Chips, Whale Crackers, Colorful Jell-O, Fruit Kabobs, Sprinkled Cupcakes, Chocolate Pretzel Rods and Hawaiian Punch. And a special thank you to Aiden for bringing a pineapple and mangoes…yum and how apropos–Christine Hagedorn. Aloha!

Happy Cinco de Mayo

Happy day before Cinco de Mayo (Cuatro de Mayo)! An excuse to gorge on chips and salsa…I’m in. We’re a school that believes in no holiday left behind—so Cinco de Mayo may be on a Saturday, but we still found a way to celebrate it at school. We enjoyed Mariachi music throughout the day and dancing the Mexican Hat Dance. SO FUN! Then we satisfied our palates with cheese quesadilla’s topped with sour cream, corn and chips with spicy salsa, bean and ranch dip. And then we quenched our thirst with fruit juice—a fabulous fiesta!CINCO DE 6CINCO DE 1CINCO DE 2CINCO DE 3CINCO DE 4CINCO DE 5
