Preschool, Day 7

Preschool is at Miss Amie's house this month. That means that I am the helper mom (phew!)and Miss Amie is the teacher. We will be learning the letters V, W and X, the color purple, and other things that I don't have to plan.

Today we started working on the letter V. Miss Amie came up with this really cute game. The kids take turns driving their imaginary Van and they all make Vroom noises. Then Miss Amie holds up a picture of a V thing (volcano, violin, etc.) and asks one kid "What can you see out the window?", they shout out the name of the V thing and the game continues until everyone has had a turn. Here they are in the Van showing how to make a V with their fingers.

On a side note, isn't this the coolest backyard toy?! It is an airplane and a teeter-tooter. It fits all 8 kids on it at one time! All the kids love it! Miss Amie told me that she got it at COSTCO, I love Costco! I need it (hint, hint mom).

We also started a science experiment. The kids each planted 2 plants in separate pots. One to put in a sunny spot and one to put in a dark spot. Both plants are supposed to be watered the same. At the end of the month the kids are going to report back what happened to each of the plants. Don't worry I promise to post the results at the end of the month.

I am jealous that we don't have moms around here willing to bite the bullet and be creative for their kids! What a great class of teachers you seem to have. Is avie going to kindergarten next year?
