First Day of Preschool was swell!

Our first day of preschool went so well. The children came in and played well. We had our morning devotions, sang a song (Jesus Loves Me, I signed along). Then we talked about the alphabet. We also sang the alphabet while jumping to release some energy.

Soon afterwards, we went outside for our first Nature Walk. Guess what! One of my new friends is scared of outside sounds & sights. He was leery of walking on the sidewalk hidden by maples and when a bumblebee buzzed by, he covered his face and ears! Oh no!, I thought. Has this little one never been introduced to the wonders of outdoor life? We did find a millipede, that look exactly like this one:

Initially, the child tried to stomp upon, then shied away from, but we did manage to observe it walking to and fro and decided he must be going home to find his children.

I was so happy to find the Handbook of Nature Study at Google Books which I'll be studying and sharing with my little friends and their parents. Hopefully by the end of the year, we'll all love to be outside more than inside!

At last, we played on the playground. It was hard to decide which activity to do first! Swings, slides, monkey bars, oh my!

We came in and ate a yummy lunch, tidied up the room and settled down for a read aloud. Attention span was pretty good, probably because it was at the end of the day and with full bellies, sleepiness was setting in.

All in all, everything went extremely well. This is the day that the Lord has made....
Looking forward to tomorrow!
