This week the children learned what God made on day 6 which was Adam and Eve. They colored a picture of Adam and Eve. They also learned the letter B this week so they glued black beans on to yellow paper and formed the beans into the letter B. The children also learned the number 2 this week. They traced the number 2 and try to write it and color a picture of two items. The boys drew their faces on a boy happy birthday picture. The girls drew their faces on a girl happy birthday picture. They also traced letter B and try to write it. They also stamped lemons on to white paper using yellow paint. They also traced letter B into their compositions books and try  to write it. Today we played a game where everyone sits in a circle. In the middle of the carpet there is a string circle. Everyone gets two marbles and try's to roll one marble into the circle string. Then they wait till everyone had a turn then they roll the other marble into the string circle. I think we are going to play this game every Friday.

First Day of the New School Year

Monday 8-4-2014

Today was the first day of the new school year. It was an unusually day the children came into the classrooms and played quietly and so nicely. Normally the children are loud when they play in the classroom.
There are a few new children in the 3 year old class and a few in the 4 year old class. There is a new boy in the 4 year old class who said to me  teacher I like your hair. I said thank you. Another boy said  Hi Ms Erin your good.
The children rode bikes today they had a good time. This afternoon for snack they had apples and ice pops. No one got hurt today so we didn't have to write an ouchie report. Today was a good first day.
 I was so excited about today that I forgot my lunch at home and I had to go back and get it. Lucky I wasn't too  far  from my house.

During nap time I made crayon boxes out of milk cartons that the parents brought this morning for the children.

Work Week Before the New School Year Starts 3rd Day

Wednesday 7-30-2014

What a long day we all had. Today the people from the waxing company came to wax our floors for both classrooms. That was nice of them.
That means we had to be out of the classrooms for most of the day. We all went shopping. First we went to Wal-Mart and got some stuff. Then we went to Education Works to pick a few things. Then we went to Toys R Us and go more things. I would name all of the stuff we got but the list was too long. We also ate lunch at a Hawaiian BBQ place. We also went to Fisher to get more stuff. It was a nice day.

When we came to school we had to put all of the furniture back in the classrooms.

Work Week Before the New School Year Starts 2nd Day

Tuesday 7-29-2014

Today I  cleaned all of the windows in the classroom that was a tough job and a gross one at that.
I also covered the bulletin boards with paper and hung them on the wall with some help from my coworkers.
My coworker and I went to the play yard and unscrewed  all of the window screens for both classrooms because they needed to be hosed down and dusted off. Then we hung the window screens back on the windows.

Our boss left without us knowing and when she came back she brought us all lunch. We all had a turkey sandwich and a salad.
