Blessing to Grandparents
Hi Mom and Dad! Today we made applesauce in class. Here is the recipe:
We cut up 12 apples (Mrs. Herdon peeled them)
We put the apple pieces into the crockpot.
1/2 c. of sugar
1 Tbsp of Cinnamon
1 1/4 cups of water
The applesauce cooked on high for 3 hours in the crockpot, and boy did our classroom and hallways smell delicious!
Today we talked more about Community Helpers. The children used shapes to make vehicles that community helpers use. We listened to the stories The Doorbell Rang and Knuffle Bunny, Our favorite song the past 2 weeks has been "If you're a boy, if you're a girl." We enjoyed some fresh air on the playground today, and even saw...(gasp)....a worm!!! Mrs. Herdon was very brave and picked it up lol. Tomorrow we have Mass at 9:00 with our buddies. Have a great night!
Here are some of the fun things we did today......
Today we read the story A Chair for My Mother by Vera Williams. We talked about what we would buy for our family if we saved our money in a money jar. We listened to the "Beanbag Boogie" and identified different parts of our body. We also played in the sand table (with beans) and used our new legos.
Reminder: Labor Day Break is from September 1st - 4th. See you on school on Tuesday, September 5th. Please remember to bring back your family picture collage next week; as well as your Child Information Record (both sides), and the last page of your preschool handbook. Have a blessed weekend with your family! Mrs. Herdon
