Structured Pre-School and Outside play

Our “Structured” portion of pre-School focused on several areas. The children worked on their fine motor skill.

  • The left and right hands.
  • Drawing a straight line by following the dotted line.
  • We did a craft involving items used in a Doctor’s bag (we used our play bag as an example to they could make the connection)
  • We also made a Horse craft which required the children to not only color and use tape properly, but also learn and practice the pinching skill of a clothes pin.

Both children did GREEAAT!!!!   And as you are aware, we continue learning throughout our day.

There   are only a few outside photos, because my Memory card was full (big shocker). Always glad to be outside though.

As always, I hope you enjoy the BLOG and photos and feel free to comment.

“G” Goose/Goat- Outside fun

Today during the “Structured” part of Pre-School, we worked on the color Blue, and the letter “G”, Goose and Goat. The craft was a Goat. We spent most of the day outside playing and learning. A few of the kids especially liked to rake, then jump in the pile, as well as take down the Halloween decorations. There was also a fort that got a lot of attention. And so much more.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Enjoy the photos. Please feel free to leave a comment, either here or on the post on Facebook. I love to read them.

First day of School and Pre-School


Tuesday was the First day of school for my second Graders, Kindergartener and my pre- schoolers. I did my normal first day of school pictures and getting on the bus. It actually went very well. Once they were on the bus it was time to start our new pre-school Curriculum. This is specific for 2 year olds. We concentrate on certain letters, numbers and Color per month. September is A,B & C. 0 & 1. And the color BLUE. First day we went over a “Friendship Wreath”. It lists five toddler activities they can practice to be a good friend (sharing/hugs etc). Then the next step was to color in the hands that made the wreath, using many different colors. Also they did free coloring. As you know, we continue to learn throughout the day. Next was playing. Then our normal days routines. Later in the day, we waited for the other kiddos to return back from school on the bus. Then the tents came out and everyone played in those.

Another great day at Lil’ Caboose. Enjoy the pictures.
