The younger kids and I worked on several craft projects, as well as a new Letter, “N”. Due to the weather being so cold they each made a Penguin, the kids had a big part in decorating them themselves. With the letter “N” we went over many words that begin with the letter/sound, including my name, as well as a Nest. That brings up another craft where they places eggs into a nest craft. We made pasta “N”ecklaces as well. This was structured CAC pre school.
As always we continued to do play based learning. We practiced our new letter whenever we saw anything that started with the “N” sound. As well as black, from the Penguin, they sure know that color.
We had puzzles, games, movement, lunch, books, naps, outside play and more.
Another great day.

Phew!!! I am ready for a good night sleep. We had our annual Halloween party. It was a BLAST!! We had games, crafts, dancing, my daughter, she took over as Tigger this year, was a great DJ (and had amazing strobe light speakers),painting, eating and so much more. All the children were able to be here, which was GREAT!!! I was very happy about that.
I think you will be able to figure out who is who, haha.
Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Please leave a comment, if you would like. I love to read them.
I love this group
My two year olds do a “Structured” curriculum each day then continue learning throughout the day. This is two days of them working on their projects. The first day we worked on the letter “E”, and made an “E”lephant project. They also worked on counting to two and did a Spider project with “Two” spiders on a web. The second day we worked on sizes, Largest to Smallest. We did two papers on that subject. The kids did a great job, and used a large variety of colors. Even my littlest, who is one, does pre-school with us (sort of).
There is also outside play. We did the parachute, made a fort over the climber, rode bikes/Toys, even had a Soccer player and a very young photographer. Two of the little ones enjoyed looking at themselves in the mirror as well.
We used many skills, from fine motor to large motor, listening, following directions and Learning, importance of play-even in learning, arts and crafts and more.
Another great day (or two days). I hope you enjoy the BLOG/photos. I would love any comments you have.
Monday in “Structured Pre School”, because as you know, we learn throughout the day as well, we talked about emotions and the many different ones. The two children did coloring pages, which turned into a book and we practiced the faces people might make when they are feeling a certain emotion. We went over “A”, “0” and “BLUE” since that is what we have been working on. The exercise for the day was “Twisting side to side”. Next, we went down back and went Apple Picking, Crabapples that is. “A” is the letter we have been working on so we kept repeating “A-Apple”. At first they were a bit nervous, I think because the apples were harder to pull off the tree then they may have thought. But they both did a great job of picking after they got the hang of it. Once we had had enough of that, we stayed outside and played. I had gotten a new bike and they wanted to try it out. Out came the parachute, which isn’t easy for two little ones. But they jumped on it, fell and laughed on it. Even ended up in a tug-of-war over it. And much more outside fun. When the older kids got off the bus, we headed back down for some more Apple picking.
