Hello again!

It’s been an eventful leave of absence for my family this past year, but I am so excited to be back in Jr. Preschool North.  I’ve got some getting-to-know-you homework to do!  I’ve been looking through the past 6 months of posts from Miss Melissa’s blog and trying to get familiar with the darling new faces I see.  I can hardly wait to meet everyone!  Miss Melodi was so wonderful to share some pictures with me that she’s taken throughout December, so I’m posting them here for you AND for me 😉

Miss Melissa plays the mystery game on the line, where she asks a student to find an object just by feeling it – no peeking!


These capable cuties get ready to go outside for recess by taking off their slippers and changing into their shoes.


Once everyone has their slippers put away in their cubbies they line up on the rope to head out to the playground!


“Hands on our heads, please, friends!”


You’ll have to see if your child will sing for you because I forgot to catch them singing their rope song as they walk outside:

(to the tune of Brother John, Are You Sleeping?)

“We are walking, we are walking

out to play, out to play

we are walking, we are walking

out to play!”

August 2011 – Part 1

This is it (in 2 parts) – the last of the pictures and video I have of my amazing students.

Please enjoy!!!

There’s always something going on.  The tricky part is trying to keep track of who’s doing what!


Cedar Rose practices pouring beans from pitcher to pitcher without spilling.  Then she gives the Sound Cylinders a try, listening carefully for the matching pairs.

Cute kids, so focused and hard at work:


Abby LOVES a good book 😉



Emery folds up her apron after she’s done painting and puts in away.


Emery gets her hands nice and clean – I love how she inspects them!


Abby meticulously cleans up some drips after she’s done with a masterpiece.


Emery gives our plants some loving care!

Miss Melissa gives Cedar Rose a lesson on “Vegetable” Serving, but we’re using apples here.

Cedar Rose gives the lesson a try all by herself!



Henry, intensely focused on one of his favorite works, Marble Spooning.

June & July 2011

I love the fun days of tromping through the snow, all that magical, glittery powder everywhere.  But there’s just something about the sunny weather that just makes everything and everyone seem so happy!

Just look at these happy kids, I didn’t even have to ask them to say cheese.

Swim days are a little tricky with juggling all the swim bags and wardrobe changes, but it’s SO worth it!  I think it might be possible that the teachers enjoy swim day just as much (if not more!) than our kiddos!

We’ve been hanging out in Miss Charity’s class for the summer since we have so many students gone for the summer.  But my class jumped right into the swing of things and have figured out where to find things and got right to work!
