1st Day of Preschool

It was a beautiful morning for the 1st day of school! We enjoyed a hike through our woods with lots of discoveries. First we saw a Hairy Woodpecker pecking a dead tree at the edge of the woods. The girls found walking sticks and collected some fallen natural items to bring back to school. 




Here a list of everything the girls found in our backyard:
Hairy Woodpecker
Acorns
Pinecones
Turkey Feather
Red Berries
Dirt
Grass
Holes
Beaver sticks
Fallen Trees
Birch Trees
Maple Tree
Deer Tracks & Scat
Toad
Long rock wall
Blackberry Bushes
Moss
Ferns


Snack Time as we reflect on our morning
Pulling up carrots in the garden


We took a peek in the garden to see what we could find. The girls harvested, carried and washed the carrots, tomatoes and Jack-Be-Little pumpkin. Next we returned inside for a little cool down drink and puppet play. We sang songs like Hokey Pokey, Ring Around the Rosie, London Bridges and Itsy Bitsy Spider. This led us back outside for a more singing and free play on the structure, but it was already time to go home!

Throughout the morning we also had the chance to have a little independent play in the sand station, play structure, as well as inside exploring the nature table and the coloring station.

Our day went by so fast! Thank you for coming to explore with us today. See you next time!
