Our Very Special Christmas Program

Family and friends of our 4-year-old class....You are invited!

Please join us on Wednesday, December 14, 2011 at 11:00am for our very special Christmas Program at Valley Christian Preschool.

We are excited for this big day and hope you can come share these special moments! Please go to the church sanctuary and come a few minutes early to get a good seat! All are welcome and we will see you there!

Students who are enrolled in extended day Lunch-a-Bunch have the option to stay after the Christmas Program, until 1:00pm, or they may go home immediately following the Program.

Pumpkin Bread at Extended Day!

Once, or more, a month we offer an special program that gives students the opportunity to extend their learning experience beyond our regular school day and lunch-a-bunch. This special extended day time is offered to our M/W/F class from 1-3pm, and includes activities such as baking, special art projects, extended play and more!

Here are a few photos from our first extended day of this school year. We baked (delicious!) pumpkin bread and our students learned how to follow a recipe, mix ingredients and pour the batter into little baking crocks, which they got to take home! Extended Day truly is extended FUN!

Visit to George's Pizza

For our "G" week, we had a FUN time at George's Pizza Restaurant. While there, the pizza chefs showed us how to create a pizza (and we even got to make our own!) Some of us enjoyed spreading the sauce while others added cheese and other toppings. The best part was tasting our yummy creations! Thank you, George's Pizza, for such a GREAT time! Here are some pictures from our field trip.

A Peek Into Our School...

Here are some photos of our creative, fun, full-of-energy, fantastic students!

"F"all Leaves

We have welcomed the Fall season in many different ways, including singing songs like: "I'm An Acorn", "Grey Squirrel", "Rake, Rake, I Like to Rake" and more!

We also have enjoyed creating many different fall-theme art projects, including these sponge-painted leaves. Our students used their fine motor skills and practiced using a stencil while using a sponge to create texture with paint.

A Proud Moment

Our 4-year-old class had a very proud moment that we just had to share! They used every single block in our classroom to create "a city" - in their own words, this was a city with roads, bridges and buildings. We love it! Right-click on the photo to open it in a new window and make it larger.

Our VERY Special Pumpkin Patch!

Here are our special little pumpkins in our 3-year-old class, ready to be "picked" up for the day!

Big Blended Beautiful Bows!

Our 4-yr-old class recently enjoyed creating "Big Beautiful Blended Bows" during our "B" week at VCP. First, they used markers to make shapes, lines and blocks of color on their paper towel. Next, each student squirted their colored paper towel with water and watched as it "magically" transformed.

We made comparisons to a butterfly transformations and also to tie-dye designs. Our class learned the meaning of "blend" and other art vocabulary throw this process. When complete and dry, we transformed the papers into big bows, and each student got a chance to wear theirs!

Here are some photos of this fun project! Click any photo to make it larger.
