A very heartfelt “Thank You” goes out to our class room parents, Mrs. Holloway and Mrs. Knicklebein. Together they planned a fun and creative class party. A party in the pre-kindergarten classroom consists of three or four stations: an art project, a game, a story, and sometimes a snack if time allows for four groups. We rotate all of the students through the stations at 8-10 minute intervals.
Though it might seem a bit rushed, it is much more calming for the children to have direct access to a grown up in a small group with specific goals in mind. Whole group activities generally don’t go as well as one would hope on a day where routines have changed.
After our party, we joined the rest of the school in a sing-a-long and a parade.
