Daddy Teaches Preschool

Last week we hosted our second preschool class.  Daddy taught this time!

Our theme wasn't quite as tight, but it still went over realy well!

We asked the kids to each bring a dry food good for a small food drive.  I tried talking to Colin about sharing food and hunger before class but it's hard to say if he got any of it. You never know, so it's never too early to start talking about principles that are important to your family!

When the kids arrived we had our snack and dove into circle time.

Gavin did awesome.  He worked hard to engage the kids and keep things upbeat and fun.  In circle time, we talked about the wather and Gavin read "Don't Spill the Milk".

After circle itme, we headed to the kitchen for some 'cooking' practice, complete with hats!

We mixed salt, flour, and water to make salt dough!

Afterwards, we made a few handprints, more on that in a later post!

Our next activity was cheerio treading.  We threaded fruit loops onto a pipe cleaner.  Some of the kids really got into this activity.  Colin not so much.  He ate a handful of fruit loops, put one on his pipe cleaner and was pretty much done.

Someone else thought it was a candy necklace!  

It was so fun watching the kids focus on an activity so carefuly!

We ended with some walking/jumping/crawling and closing circle time.  The kids seemed to have a great time and hopefully they all learned a little something too.
