Preschool finished this week for me. The last couple of days we spent getting ready to say good by to those wonderful children that enriched our lives every Tuesday and Thursday. We had such a great year with the children and families this year. We will miss them all.
The first order of business was to finish up the children's Me Books which we have been compiling all year. We needed to remeasure and weigh the children to see how much they have physically grown while they were with us.
The children also added a page where they wrote their own name. And, the final page, or pages, was some photos that we had taken over the year. We put the photos at the end of the children's books for them to have some special memories of their time with us.
The last day is usually just a fun day together. This year I made a cute little frog out of chocolate sandwich cookies, pretzels, vanilla frosting, and M&Ms. A friend had sent me this yummy craft a while back and I was glad to use it. The children always enjoy making "crafts" they can eat.
Our picnic was Tuesday. Of course, the weather didn't cooperate fully but we still had a wonderful time. The first part of our picnic was spent in the classroom with the sand table, water table, kidfetti, creation station, blocks, kitchen, etc. Then everybody filled their bellies with the yummies they had brought.
Finally Mr. Sun made an appearance and we went outside to blow bubbles.
Again, I thoroughly enjoyed my year with the children and I hope you enjoyed the journey with us.
Have a wonderful summer!
