Our First Official Day in Pr3school

 ~Bella is 37 months old~

Here is a look at what we did in our first day at Pr3school!

Bible Focus:
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. 
Genesis 1:1 

We read the whole creation story using the Pray and Play Bible...and then focused on Day 1
 Craft Page from Hubbard's Cubbard Bible Curriculum

Music and Movement:
We love to dance and make up motions to the songs!
Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
He's Got the Whole World 
God Made Me
This is the Day

Our Focus for the next two weeks will be all the basic colors.

Each morning in our group time we do a color of the day and a mystery box.
Today was a stuffed animal zebra...I gave a few hints and then they had to guess.  Then we put up the color of the day on our board, and went on a black and white scavenger hunt all around the house.  This is a new and fun addition to our group morning routine. 
Day One was focused around Black and White to tie in with Creation Day 1 Day and Night, so we explored by making a black and white collage.  
Bella LOVES cutting paper...I think we did this for 45 minutes before she declared that she was finished!

We are also beginning to work on numeral recognition, and what better number to start with...Number One!

We got out the shaving cream and traced the number one...

over and over again.  

I let her play around too, of course!

For science we talked about Day and Night. 

Hubbard's Cubbard has an awesome printable with different activities that you do in the daytime or nighttime.  So we worked on sorting those out.  I just wrote out the words "Day or Night" and taped it over the writing on the page in our Bible Book we read out of earlier in the day.  She did really well in sorting out the different activities.

For the next two weeks, we will introduce all the ABC's.
We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and then while she colored a coloring sheet, 

I colored our very own coconut tree for our fridge.  

Then we got some our our ABC magnets (found at the dollar tree) and placed them up.  We played with them, and re-read the book and placed the appropriate letters on the fridge as we got to them on each page.  
Tons of Fun!  No time for action pics though :(

We also watched some videos with Chicka Chicka Boom Boom featured.  One was a DVD from Nickelodeon we have with Blues Clues Room.  A cute little boy reads with Blue, and the story is animated.  

Another was from you tube.  It's a song.  Too cute!

Another fun thing we did was cover our table in the school room with some butcher paper on a roll.  Then I laid out all my ABC cookie cutters and showed her how to trace them with crayons.  

Wiggly Fun:
We took a trip to the Georgia Southern University museum
featuring exhibits of dinosaurs, bubbles and games!

This last one is my favorite of the day!  Sure, its blurry...but it's Bella!

We are also doing the Hubbard Cupboard, your post has inspired me to branch out and try the Mystery box and scavenger hunt! Wow, you sure are brave with shaving cream, I think I need to loosen up and let my little one go for it, lol!
