Delicious but Devilish Donuts!

What a cute snack today! Mrs. Zaenger’s afternoon class got to enjoy a little Halloween treat! The eyes were even edible and the fangs were “Fangtastic!”


I captured the Sun!

I made a fresh batch of yellow play dough for Mrs. Zaenger to use with our early drop off kids on Fridays–“Play dough Friday”.  The dough was bright and sunny and was warm when I put it in a ziplock bag.  As I carried it through the school to put the play dough in the cabinet, the kids all wondered what I had in my hands.  I showed them the bag of playdough and told them that I had “captured the sun” and put it in my bag.  They saw that it was yellow and they all had to feel how warm the freshly cooked playdough felt.  If you have ever been questioned by a bunch of preschool children about what you have or what you are doing, you will agree with me that you just have to tease them a little bit!  I told them that it was the sun because it was round and yellow and warm.  And besides that, the day was really cloudy and you couldn’t find the sun.  “L” looked at my bag of play dough and asked what it was.  I told him it was the sun captured in a bag.  “L” disagreed with me.  “How do you know this is not the sun?” I asked.  “L” said, “Because it doesn’t have those pointy things on it!”  Well, there you go.  I can’t trick “L”!

A “Beary” Good Snack!

Miss Maura, Mrs. Keltner, and Mrs. Matt did a bear theme in the yellow rooms. After lots of bear stories, songs, and games, they finished off a delicious snack of “Bear Pancakes”. Here are some photos of their fun snack.

How To Speak Spanish at the Preschool

At lunch, a 5 year old told the children at his table that he could speak Spanish. A girl piped up, “Say something!” The boy said, “Aye, Matey!”

What Do Husbands Do?

Mrs. Zaenger’s afternoon class was playing house. One of the boys wanted to be a cat or a dog and asked Mrs. Zaenger if it was okay. Mrs. Zaenger told him, “Not today.” (cat and dog play can get out of hand in a preschool class). The boy said, “Okay. I will be the husband.”. “Oh, that is a good idea. I like that idea! What do husbands do?” asked Mrs. Z.  The boy replied, “NOTHING!”

A Baby Shower?

A four year old girl told Mrs. Matt that her mom was out of town because she had to go to a baby shower. “And,” the girl said, “the baby is not even going to get wet!”

My Dad is Superman!

A 3 year old boy was telling about his cat, Cody, and how an animal chased Cody up a tree. The cat would not come down from the tree so his dad got a ladder and got the cat out of the tree. At this point in the story, the boy paused and said, “My dad does not have a Superman suit.” Mrs. Zaenger asked, “He doesn’t?” The boy said “NO. He doesn’t EVEN have a Superman suit!”
