Fall Preschool Adventures

I have been waiting to write this post to see if Brody's teachers would post more pictures from the past couple of months.  Sadly, they do not seem to be as big on picture taking as his previous teachers so I am thankful I got a few to capture his school memories.  Brody is taking a school break for December to hang out more with Mommy.  We just have some things in the works that may mean school changes so I thought this break would be good timing.  We plan to have lots of Christmas fun together at home and work on learning too.  Brody actually isn't in a class with most of his old friends from previous years, and I don't think he has really "bonded" with many of the kids in his current class yet.  He does enjoy school though, but I think we will stay so busy this month that he will barely notice a change.

Brody is over in the reading area sharing a book with another little boy.

He loves singing and dancing.

They have indoor playtime in the fellowship hall when the weather isn't very nice.

One of their September crafts was making an oyster since the theme that month was the ocean.  Brody is always so proud of his artwork.

I spent a day with him at school when he had school pictures because I wanted to be sure he cooperated for pictures.  Last years weren't the greatest because he was upset and crying.  When I arrived, he was in his usual place in the kitchen area playing by himself.  I got him to join me and play with play dough.

We made some Halloween themed cut outs.

Then they played a listening game.

Circle time.  They got more of this time that usual while waiting for their picture time.  They would usually have gotten to go outside.

Brody's teacher entertained them with some stories and songs.  This was the doughnut game where each kid was called up to pick a colored doughnut.

They all enjoyed a little playtime after lunch because they hadn't had their usual outside time.

Brody loves the slide.  Unfortunately, I am not sure the playtime after lunch was a great idea because when Brody got home, he immediately threw up as soon as he walked in the door.

I loved this fingerprint turkey.

His teachers sent home this little book of some of his art from his first few months.

  3. These were all really fun crafts. And Brody does a great job with all of his artwork. Honestly it drives me crazy when kids, even toddlers, are sloppy and uncaring with their work. I know, I know, I have unrealistic expectations. But I can tell that Brody is not that way.

    I really like the pearl in the oyster. I'm totally going to do that with somebody!

  4. I love all of Brody's crafts! They are so fun!

    And sometimes I feel like we shouldn't be sending Rachel to preschool because she could get a lot of learning at home and it wouldn't cost as much but I feel like we are paying for me to have a sanity break! Ha ha ha!

    Have a good December preschool at home month. It sounds like a lot of fun!
