Today, we finished up our Zoo Animals theme at the preschool. We had a great couple of weeks learning about our ferocious friends! We painted stripes on zebras, finger painted spots on giraffes, and sang Raffi’s “Going to the Zoo.” The children especially liked playing with their own “zoo” in the sand table and singing and moving along with a special version of “If You’re Happy and You Know It” featuring zoo animals! Pastor Mark also taught us about Noah’s Ark; imagine fitting all those animals in one boat! We finished off our theme today by having the children bring in their favorite stuffed zoo animal and doing a zoo animal show-and-tell.
Of course, earlier this week we took a break to learn about Valentine’s Day. We talked about love: who we love and how much God loves us! The children also made Valentines for their families. As you can see, Valentine’s Day was a big hit!
Next week is Winter Break, but when the children return, we’ll start learning about the Five Senses!
