Fall!!!

With Halloween being on a Monday, we decided to switch right over to the Fall Season just after the 31st! We jumped in with our Fall Theme....

Sometimes, with Halloween being on Monday, it makes for a long week! This week, we kept things very simple!! We enjoyed some nice weather, while coming off loads of sugar!!

Here is the Stuff We Do!! :) 







Be wonderfully Blessed, We sure are!! Hopefully we will see you in a few days with our Camping Theme!! :) See ya then! By the way, the acorn poem with the edible acorns is an original poem, I wrote while driving to school!!

With many Blessings,
Sherry :)

We paraded in our costumes then used our Manners to trick or treat in the hallway! 


We made oreo spiders to conclude our Fall Fun Holiday Craft Items!!

Manners Theme

As you can tell, History repeats itself! There are some themes you just have to do each year. Manners is one of these themes!!

We have to learn our Manners before we can trick or treat!











The pumpkins in the pumpkin patch has an original poem by none other than myself. :)

May you be wonderfully Blessed,
Sherry :)

Fire Safty

Oh my! I just realized I've not posted in quite some time!!

Now, we're in the second week of November, and I didn't post anything from October!
The apple items were posted in October, but, they were done the last week of September!
Goodness Gracious, It's hard for me to wrap my head around all that, how can I expect you to??

The first week of October, we decided to go with the Fire Safety Theme.

Here's what we did!!!








The first thing we did was a shapes fire truck. The second thing we did was cut out a shirt pattern from construction paper. We had the kids dip yarn into the paint. We then folded the shirt paper in half and had the children press down on it. This created the fire on our shirts. 
The third thing we did was take pictures of all the kiddos so everyone could make a fire dog picture frame. The spots were none other than finger and thumb prints. It takes a few days to get pictures, have them developed and back to school for everyone to take one home!! :) 
The last thing for fire safety, we had the kiddos scrunch up streamer paper in little balls and glue them
them to the 911 coloring sheet. 

Many Blessings,
Sherry :)

Apples!!

We had an apple theme...

We made the famous Johnny Appleseed Headbands and colored the Johnny Appleseed Prayer.
(I forgot to take pictures of the headband and Prayer) Actually, I remember taking the picture, but, it must have been one the camera messed up on, because I can't find it anywhere. I only have the headbands the children are wearing.



We also made pictures of the inside of an apple, we allowed the children to pick their favorite apples, red, green, or yellow.. I wrote an original poem for each color. (I actually wrote the original green apple poem, and changed the color lines for red and yellow) So you will see repeated lines in the poems.








To make "inside the apples" you cut an apple shape from poster board or card stock. We have the kiddos bingo dab the apple colors of choice around the edge of the apple. They color or bingo dab the leaf and stem. Finger or Thumbprints are used to create the seeds. The rest is left white for the inside of the apple.

Each child made a magnetic apple to hold artwork on the refrigerator for the months of school to come. Please be careful when using magnets, (we used the button type magnets) It is dangerous for children if they swallow a magnet. Should you decide to make these, please make sure to keep them out of harms way. I didn't take a picture of the back of the apple, but, we hot glued a wooden clip type clothespin and hot glued two button magnets to the clothespin.




The sticker eyes for the word ~ LOOK ~ certainly gave these little apples loads of personality!!!

We made fingerprint apple trees. (This was NOT one of my original poems or idea)




We also made mini apple pies to try out. I used one can of crescent rolls. (but if you decide to make this you will need 2 cans of crescents, we had lots of apple left over) I bought a can of Apple Pie Filling (Great Value Brand - Found at Walmart) I cut the pieces into bite sizes. We had the children sprinkle cinnamon onto the apples and then stirred it to mix well. I melted about a half stick butter in a glass measuring cup. The children loved it when we bopped the crescent cardboard roll on the table and it popped open. I unrolled the crescents and spooned a little melted butter onto the raw crescent, then we spooned some apples onto the crescent and rolled it from the biggest end to the smallest. I mixed a little sugar and cinnamon together and had the children roll the crescents into the cinnamon sugar. We baked them in a toaster oven which we have in our room on 375 for about 20 - 25 minutes. Most of the children LOVED them. Some of them, didn't want to try them because when the cinnamon and sugar melted it looked a little burnt (but wasn't) They judged by the looks not the taste! We did this on wax paper and baked them on top of wax paper in the oven. I do recommend if you try this, to please spray your waxed paper or pan before baking, they did stick a bit. The picture didn't really do the taste any justice. It was really good!!!




This concluded our apple week!! We had a lot of fun and the kids really enjoyed it!!

May you have a wonderfully Blessed Week!!

Pet Week...

Ooops, I am almost a week late, okay... by only a few days..

Last week, we talked about Pets. Some people (like Mrs. Melissa) has pet snakes, but, pet snakes do NOT live outside, and we never ever ever touch an outside snake!!

Our first day, we talked about pet birds and how they live in a cage. This little cage is made from wallpaper and houses a footprint bird!



The second day, we made a pet goldfish. Each child was asked what they would name their goldfish
if they had one. (You have to ask kiddos one at time and in secret or you may end up with 13 names the same.



The third day, we talked about bunnies. They are cute, cuddly, and have little fuzzy tails!!  This is an original poem written by me.




The fourth day, we talked about puppy dogs!!




The last day of the week, we made handprint cats! Paw paper was found on bing.com



Wishing each of you a very happy week!!
Love and Blessings,
Sherry
