Class: 2 AM TTH - Ladybugs

The Ladybugs had so much fun learning about our solar system. We are still exploring space in The Acorn Spaceship and Observatory in Dramatic Play. We played with "moon" sand in the sensory table.  With the cooler mornings, we loved using the manipulatives on the porch. We are jumping higher and higher using the Bouncy Balls in the Motor Room.  The Ladybugs always love art.  They enjoyed creating their metallic paint masterpiece and using their fine motor skills, pinching an eyedropper to create "earth." Father's Day for the Ladybugs is Tuesday, October 19th. We are anxious to share our mornings and to show off our one-of-a-kind gift and gift bag to our dads. We know they'll love it! . 

Dad's Day for the Ladybugs is Tuesday, October 19th from 10:15 - 11:15. We will be on the big playground. As a reminder, only one adult per child can attend and all adults need to wear a mask. Also, no siblings.

In Dramatic Play, the Acorn fire truck was a big hit!  The Ladybugs enjoyed driving the fire truck to put out the "fire." They liked sharing and taking turns with the "firehouse" doll house with their friends. With the cooler weather, we had fun using the manipulatives and putting together the large floor puzzle, on the porch.  In the motor room, we each tried to launch a bean bag in the air and catch it!  Great eye-hand coordination. The Ladybugs always have a great time in art. The enjoyed fold art and sponge mop art.  Ask your Ladybug about playing "Duck, Duck, Goose." It was so much fun. We all had a blast!

The Acorn Fire House was a big hit in the Dramatic Play Room. The Ladybugs enjoyed sharing the fire extinguishers and fire hoses to save the "burning house." They enjoyed wearing the fire hats, jackets and vests. With the cooler weather, using the manipulatives on the porch is a treat. They enjoyed "stomping" the launchers to send bean bags sailing. We'll try catching the bean bag next week. Art is a Ladybug favorite. They liked painting with orange and red paint and fire truck painting. 

We want to wish a Happy Birthday to Ben Hansen (9/21). Thank you for sharing your delicious birthday snack. 

As a reminder, preschool morning pick up is 11:30 - 11:40.
