We had fun making bats out of construction paper and pom poms.
We added a face to our pumpkins to make jack-o-lanterns. We laminated them and made them into placemats.
We played a fun game called letter swat. We gave two kids a fly swatter and told them a letter. The first one to swat the correct letter with thier fly swatter was the winner. We played this a few times. They loved it.
One of our favorite crafts this week was the leaf imprints. We made some clay, and then pressed a leaf into it to make an imprint. We then painted our imprint with watercolor paint. We had a great time. We made some scarecrow file folders with the letters A-M. The kids each took home a baggie of letters to practice matching on the scarecrow at home. We traced some leaves, and the kids used watercolor paints to make their leaves colorful and unique.
Last week, we learned about transportation. We discussed ways that we get from one place to another. The kids made a collage of vehicles that go on the road. They enjoy learning new things! Our favorite project this week was making trucks out of graham crackers, cheerios, frosting, and peanut butter cookies. They love to make anything that involves food!
We started Wiggle Worm Preschool in August 2007. It's been so much fun and we have really enjoyed the kids and hope to add more students. Amy graduated from A.S.U. in Elementary Education and taught second grade at Spectrum Elementary, and the next year she taught morning kindergarten. She has two adorable girls and a great husband named Marcus.
Tricia is married to her husband (great) of 27 years and they have 6 children, ranging from ages 16 to 26, 4 daughters and 2 sons. She is the very excited and proud grandma of 2 grandsons and 3 granddaughters whom she adores. Amy and Tricia love doing preschool together and working with your wonderful children!
