This year I had the opportunity to do a Co-op preschool with Blake and some 6 of his friends and mothers. I have had a lot of fun. This years curriculum was focused around the letters of the alphabet. Blake knows so many of his letters and sounds. He is doing a great job and learning so many things. We have created a lot of fun memories.... so I thought I would take a minute to document a few of them.

K is for Kitchen.

Future Chefs

Chef Blake

We had a lot of fun learning how to work in our "Joy School Kitchen"! We made cereal necklaces, chef hats, and play dough. IT was a lot of fun learning what goes on in a kitchen, how to follow a recipe and create a masterpiece.

R is for Rescue

Eric works by the City of Sumner fire station, as was nice enough to help coordinate a field trip to the fire station. The kids really enjoyed climbing in the fire truck and learning all about fireman do.

Posing for a picture with the fireman. Even Brody got to be part of the field trip.

Brody loved his fireman hat. The best (and sometimes worst) part of doing a co-op preschool is that Brody got to be involved on field trips and when it was my turn to teach at my house. He tries so hard to be one of the big kids.

I love the look these two are giving each other. (Since the field trip was in Sumner, Eric was able to stop by and give me a hand for a while.)

I like this picture too. I like looking at all the kids faces staring up at the fireman.

T is for Tumbling

We also did a field trip to Harts Gymnastics. This was soooo much fun. The kids got to run around a big gym and jump on trampolines, twirl on bars, do summer salts and kart wheels, and all sorts of stuff.

Those are some lucky kids. Even though I know it is a lot of work, it must be so much fun for the kids to have their moms so involved in their learning. I think I would have had fun at your Joy School!
