After reading "Little Pea" for circle time. I gave each child a story token, their very own little Pea. R is holding her story token above. As you can see they absolutely LOVED these little guys. It worked out wonderfully when we headed up for free time and everyone began playing in the dry peas. They each had their tokens to play with in the peas and it couldn't have worked out better for a wonderful pretend play opportunity.
We played a fun candy game with some jelly beans, because Little Pea hated to eat candy. I turned around to get something and all of a sudden we had no more candy! Look at those guilty little faces :) Hilarious!
We discovered sweet peas for our science moment and everyone loved diving into these. I have to say it was heartbreaking to me to watch them destroyed because peas are my very favorite! I saved a few to munch on and we all tried them before hand for snack. Most everyone liked to eat peas, but not as much as they liked digging into them with their tweezers.
Check out these cute little chickens we caught and put in the chicken coop.
We had a little field fun. Nothing like running across the field and singing our preschool songs!
Check out these sweet kiddos with evidence of the first signs of Spring. I don't know about you, but we are sure happy it is here!
Below, Rh is demonstrating the first little blossoms on our red Japanese Maples. So exciting to see how quickly spring abounds around here.
I didn't take many photos of our Easter/1st Day of Spring Party. As you can see though, we had some happy preschoolers!
A few more of the happy kiddos...
Then again who wouldn't be happy with Easter Bunny Tea parties, an Easter egg matching numbers game, Easter shaped marshmallows, and all of your very best friends? Thanks for letting me work with these wonderful little people!
