Cutting and Writing

We have a writing station that we get out at least once a week. When we have room next year, it will be out all the time! Anyway, it is filled lots of paper and all kinds of pens, pencils, crayons, markers and even scissors. The kids love to "play" with this and practice their prewriting skills at the same time.

Shelby Grace and Abeny practice cutting paper.

We use markers,

fun multi colored pens,

and pencils.

Jacob wrote a "J" all by himself for the first time.

Sometimes we can even color with both hands at one time!

Check out Abeny learning how to write the letter A with chalk.

Happy Birthday Jacob and Shelby Grace!

Check out who went on stage for their birthday and wasn't afraid to speak in the microphone!

Playing in the leaves

The adjushis think we are crazy but we love to play in the leaves! The adjushis brought us leaves that included some trash to be sifted out but we had fun still. We got to experience fall in a whole new way! Your kids practiced raking. Too bad you don't have a yard to put them to work!

The Future of TCIS

A cheerleader?

A basketball star?

Best Friends

Or maybe a princesses will rule the school?

Outdoor Fun

The weather has been so beautiful lately now that fall has arrived. We have spent a lot of time outside. Last week, we went to the elementary playground, or purple playgroun as we call it, to play for awhile. The little ones had a lot to learn about the safety of a new playground but we still had a really good time.

Ephraim and Frances explored on the see saw.

Everyone loves to swing. Check out Ephraim showing kindness to his friends and pushing Sofie on the swing!

Gotta love these smiling faces!

Sofie showed kindness to Simeon and helped him slide down the slide. It's so much more fun when you can do it together!

Did you know a picnic table makes an awesome fort!

Sara is a great leader and teacher. She got the younger ones together to play ring around the rosie.

Ephraim and Shelby Grace spent a long time sharing the ball and being so kind to one another.

Fun on the purple playground.

Yellow Fun!

Y-E-L-L-O-W spells yellow! The color yellow has been keeping us busy.

We can play in our yellow sensory box. There are so many different and fun yellow textures to play with.

One of our favorite things is to play with playdough. Check out Mrs. Jennifer's macaroni and cheese :).

Our fine motor skills are at work with lacing the yellow foam beads.

We made a yellow collage of different papers, materials, and tools to color and paint.

One rainy day, we played with yellow oobleck.

The dinosaurs got in on the gooey fun.

One day we used, balloons to paint with.

We made yellow suns. We painted yellow circles and got to glue yellow triangles.

We painted yellow bananas. Some of us got a little carried away with our paint :). Check out how we painted with balloons.

The color yellow sure is fun!
