Here's a review of some of the fun things Jaxon did at PreSchool this week!

Today in preschool we got to ride on the BUS to go and get our pictures taken. Exciting! The preschoolers also painted with corncobs, rolling them in paint and then on papers to make designs. We sang our new nursery rhyme for the week, "Baa Baa Black Sheep" but we worked on our color recognition by changing the color... of the sheep. Baa Baa "Purple" Sheep made the kids giggle pretty hard :) ~ Mrs. Amy
Jaxon had to be at school a little early on Monday morning for his pictures which was not a problem... he's usually ready to leave every morning by about 6:30 anyway! Out front the big, yellow school bus was waiting w/ their driver who was greeting the kids as they arrived. Jaxon couldn't get out of the car fast enough... he was so excited! When I got there to pick him up, he was grinning from ear to ear... let's hope he grinned that big for his pictures! Daddy had lots of questions about the bus ride... Jaxon's only response was that their driver drove slow, "He was an old man, Dad."

Today we painted with sweetened condensed milk, making colorful, glossy pictures. It was fun to drizzle and swirl this unusual paint. The preschoolers also sorted a variety of farm products by which animal we receive them from. Eggs and milk were easy, but where does bacon come from? ~ Mrs. Amy
When we get home from PreSchool, it's time to make lunch. Normally I ask Jaxon what they've had for snack, what books they read, songs they sang and if they've played outside that day. He can normally tell me what they've had for snack and if they've played outside but other questions don't get answered until later on in the day.
While making lunch Jaxon asked where sausage comes from, I thought nothing of it because it's not unusual for him to ask questions like this. After telling him that it comes from pigs, he chimed in, "So does bacon!" At that point he went on to share what they discussed at school about farm products, and has been full of questions ever since about where certain foods come from!

Today in preschool we completed a new class book, a lift the flap farm book called, "Good Morning, Farm!" I was really impressed with the artwork and I am sure you will love the book when you see it. All of the kids said the nursery rhyme "Baa Baa Black Sheep" perfectly, and got a small piece of candy for their memorization prize. ~ Mrs. Amy
I am so excited to see their new book! Jaxon hasn't said much about it but he has definitely been singing "Baa Baa Green Sheep" a lot this week! (We even drew pictures of green sheep with chalk outside.) After PreSchool, Jaxon had a playdate with his classmate Andrew. They went out for pizza, checked books out at the library, went shopping at Dollar General and played at Andrew's house. Jaxon had such a good time and can't wait to play again soon!
