Shaving cream!

Gotta love shaving cream in a preschool classroom! So many wonderful things to do with shaving cream! You can use the shaving cream as mortar between unit blocks, put it in your sensory table, fingerpaint with it, mix it with glue and paint for puffy paint pictures, and my very favorite (thanks to the "Ooey Gooey Lady" for this great science idea) is shaving cream on water in a clear container and take eye droppers of liquid watercolor and drop the liquid watercolor in the shaving cream. Fun for the children doing the dropping and fun for the children watching the liquid watercolor break through the cream into the water. Pretty cool!

Good Beginnings!

What a fantastic turnout for our Good Beginnings playgroup last week. Good Beginnings is a parent/child playgroup sponsored by The Cooperative Nursery School. A parent with a child/children between 6 weeks to 5 years attends one morning per week from 9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. We currently have playgroup on Wednesday and Friday mornings. Our Wednesday morning group is full for this first session. We may have a few openings in our Friday morning session. Please call the school, 384-1128, for more information!

The playgroup is a great introduction to preschool but with the security of having mom or dad close by! There is a teacher that facilitates the playgroup. The teacher sets up an art activity for the parents to do with their child, she also conducts a short circle time with songs, fingerplays, and stories. The parents take turns bringing snack for the class each week. There is a small fee for this class.

Children, parents, and teachers working together!

School starts!

What a great first week we've had! It was busy and fun! Thanks to all the parents that cleaned and made our classrooms sparkle! Parent orientation went smoothly! And the Welcome Back to School picnic was so much fun!

The children are getting to know each other and their teachers. We're having fun playing while we learn. So many fun things to do in each classroom!
