Service Work: Being a member of a community!

We had started a new tradition at the preschool. Being that KVPAC is a community we feel that our students have a responsibility to give back. We had a food drive in November for KCM/Food back. Our students brought in canned goods and non- items. In December the children helped Ms. Jennifer create blankets for the families at the Fort Bend women’s shelter. In February the kids made valentines cards for the kid at Texas Children’s West Campus Facility. I think our harder task as parents and educators is to create a sense of community. We all need to support and nurture our community. This is our effort to support and give back. We also want our students to understand what it means to share what a great lesson in sharing.

Updates! & Love Parties!

We returned to school in January and had may days packed full of fun. We got back into the swing of things and learned about Scotland. We had Mr. David come dressed in his kilt and he played his canter. The kids loved it! Image

In January we studied Michelangelo and carved David in soap. The soap smelled great and the kids got a chance to work on improving their fine motor skills. We have three classes and it is always a treat to see how skilled our children are and how much growth occurs between ages 3-5.

The kids also a got a chance to experience painting on a scalpel.They colored under the tables. Usually we tell the kids to get out from under the table but this time they stayed under the table for entire class period.

This month we studied the 5 senses! This picture is from the 5 senses song Ms. Chelsea taught the kids. They loved learning what the nose does and how we use our eyes to see color. We had a group activity for Thinking Thursday and Fun Friday in which the kids rotated between the 5 senses stations. They got to taste, smell, hear, touch, and see. Everyone had a great time learning about our bodies. 5 Sense Song

        The first day of school is Monday and the excitement of getting a semester started is overwhelming. We had many changes occur during 2012/2013 but we pushed forward finishing the year off strong. We miss our dear friends who have moved on to bigger horizons. We wish them well on their next journey. But, last week the teachers and I had serious work days. We painted all the classrooms. We are a non-profit preschool which means funds are minimal  so we used our left over paint from the Theater department to create these colors.
