Monkeying around in storytime

September 16, 2014

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we jumped, shook our tails, and chattered, whooped and screeched like monkeys.

Some of our books about monkeys

We played the door game again, looking for animals that start with the letter “M” (for monkey, of course!).


All the kids also made monkey masks.

At today’s Crafternoon, we made our own magnets using glass gems, paper, colored pencils, glue, and magnet tape. First, we traced the shape of the glass beads on paper. Then, we used colored pencils to make tiny drawings. We cut out our tiny drawings and glued them to the flat part of the glass gem. We glued a magnet to the back of the drawing & Ta-Da! Magnet!

Check out our work:

Fall Into Storytime

September 9, 2014

Ready, Set, Kindergarten! is back! Today was the first day of our fall session. And to celebrate, we read stories, sang songs and more, all about fall. 

Books about Fall

We also played a new, fun game with sounds. Today’s sound was “F,” for Fall.

After the stories, rhymes, and songs, we had some time for free play.

Playing is work!

If you are 3, 4 or 5, join us next week for more fun.

Make Your Own Magnets!!!


September 8, 2014

                                                                                                             The Children’s Room is desperate for donations of wooden, “Thomas” type trains for use on our 2 train tables. Our collection has dwindled from close to 20 trains to 2 trains, currently. So we ask if you have any trains that are no longer the hot item that they once were, please consider us if you are looking to part with them. Thanks in advance!
