Every morning they started their day off by sitting at the red circle carpet for "circle time" -- a time to show and tell, to go over the weather, to perform warm ups, to sing songs and to discuss the letter of the day.
Then they would say the Pledge of Allegiance and follow it with their version of the National Anthem. The song goes like this...
Some stripes are red
Some stripes are white
And in the corner there is blue
Oh our flag stands for our Country
How I love red, white and blue.
Then it is singing time. We heard so many children songs (Addy's favorite is the "Spooky Walk"). They also learned a long rendition of Jack and Jill (since she did go to Jack and Jill Preschool). For the graduation party, Addy played the "Mother" in the song -- check out her little shyness while she accepted the bucket full of water from Jack. Bo was camera-gal and was so excited for Addy. She would cheer, "Yeah Addy, you did it!"And of course, the event finished with snack. The girls were introduced to orange floats. It was an instant hit.
Mrs. Fran Timmerman is the most organized and creative preschool teacher. It was a joy to see her two days a week for 3 years.
