Oh, the Wonderful Things of Valentine’s Day!

I so love Valentine’s Day that I make it the two weeks of Valentines.  I love the wonderful colors of pinks, reds, purples, and all the lace, dollies and ribbons.
I also love to cook in the classroom during these two weeks.  We love to make pancakes in heart shapes and waffles with red strawberries and yogurt.

It’s a New Year

Our first week back at school and our theme is The New Year.  I thought long and hard about how I wanted to help my kids understand that we are now in a new year and the old year is gone.  Being four years old, they really can’t grasp the “New Year” concept so I decided we would go with celebrating the old things we still love and the excitement of discovering new things.

Giving With a Cheerful Heart

With Thanksgiving coming up in November we started our giving with a cheerful heart theme.  We started by telling the story of Joseph’s coat of many colors. Joseph’s coat was a gift from his father, because he loved him very much. At circle time we talked about what kind of gifts we have received and which ones were our favorites. This was very easy for my kids because they all receive gift throughout the year. When I asked what kind of gifts they have given to people they love, this was harder for them to come up with an answer.

Summertime Means Vacation Bible School, Part 2
For our Vacation Bible School, we are continuing our “God helps us weather the storm” theme. This week we were exploring how rain is involved in our lives.

Arizona only get about 7.5 inches of rain each year. Over ¾ of our rain comes during the summertime, which is known as the Monsoon season. We can get very heavy rains in just 30 to 60 minutes and is accompanied by loud and often scary thunder and lightning.
