For St. Patrick's Day, we made Leprechaun Finders to help us catch a leprechaun. We recited the poem as we looked for it all over the house. The leprechaun left green glitter and footprints where he had been. Finally, we caught our leprechaun and kept him in a paper sack so that he would not escape. Wyatt found the pot of gold that he left, and everyone took some home. We had a pretty fun day.
This past week, we learned about the different types of people that work in our community. On Wednesday, we had everyone dress as what they want to be when they grow up. It was so fun to see everyone all dressed up. Matthew dressed as a teacher. Jett dressed as a Jamba Juice worker, and brought Jamba Juice for the entire class! Leah was a pop star. Shelby dressed up as a dancer. Brianna was a music teacher. Aiden was a firefighter. Bailey dressed as a Ballerina. Olivia was dressed as a Salsa Dancer. We learned all about what a Mailman does. We made our own letters that will be sent to our houses. We also got to take home Mailman puppets. On Friday, we made our own communities with buildings, roads, and cars. We had so much fun learning about Community Helpers.
We made crabs to keep on the fridge . We used clothespins for the pinchers where the kids can display their artwork. They turned out so cute. We had so much fun making our ocean in a bottle. We gathered sand from the backyard, added seashells, and then poured in water with blue food coloring. Our water turned out a little blue, but the kids still had fun making them. For one of our acitvities, we read a story about a rainbow fish and then made our own rainbow fish. Everyone did such a great job!
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!
