mish mash


I added little blacks heads to each ladybug today and now they look less like black and red spiders and more like ladybugs!  We also found 2 more live ladybugs on the playground today.  This excited the children to no end!  As we did yesterday – we observed them for awhile and then set them free on a tree that overhangs our fence.

Also, yesterday I talked to the teacher I snapped at the day before.  She understood that I was just having some sort of really bad day and didn’t take it personally.  So we’re back to normal now.  She said she understands that everyone looses it and has a bad day every now and then.  She knows I’m not normally like that and said that she wasn’t going to make it a big thing.  Whew!  I was relieved and I know that it will never happen again!

On Monday and Tuesday we are going learn about bees and do some kind of bee art.  I don’t know what kind of art project we will do…trying to find a good bumble bee to make – but haven’t found one I like yet.  So, I’m gonna keep looking…hopefully I find something!  I’m also looking for a cute book to read…thought I had one but now I can’t find it!  How frustrating!  Oh well, that’s life!

We are also going to start learning our end of the year songs that we will sing for our parents!  We’ve been listening to them all week and the children really like them!  I had about 5 songs for us to choose between and the two we picked are the two the children responded to the most!  One is a christian song called “I am a Promise” and the other is a Raffi song called “All I Really Need” – I’m sure the kids will look adorable singing them!  This is not the first time I’ve picked a Raffi song and they are always a hit!  I’ve also done “I am a Promise” in past years and parents love it!  Can’t wait to get started!


About deepbluetide

I am a pre-kindergarten teacher at a private christian school. I work mornings with 4 year olds (most of whom enter my class in July still being 3 - they're babies!) and then in the afternoon work "daycare" - which is basically my own class combined with 5 year old children. One things for sure - it's never dull! I had no idea growing up I would be teaching pre-k today! It took me totally off guard - but in the end I wouldn't change a thing! I have worked with children whose age range is 6 weeks through 12 years. In the end I have decided that my current age group is my favorite! And in case you were wondering - all names mentioned are changed to protect the identities of those involved. Enjoy!

  1. My daughter brought home a really cute bee that was a paper plate painted yellow with black stripes, wiggle eyes, and the wings were cut from wax paper and put on with a brad. I’m going to steal the idea and use it in my class.
