if you're happy and you know it...

this months theme for preschool is "feelings". i was lucky enough to get the week that we learned about being happy. along with a couple songs and games, we also made some big smiles and then danced in a parade...well, sort of...you'll have to see for yourself!
(sometimes blogger REALLY irritates me. for whatever reason, it kept uploading this picture of luke sideways and i couldnt get it right. sorry natalie)




the game we played was called the "smile tag" game. one person was it and had a huge grin on their face while everyone else was somber. then the person who was smiling would pretend to wipe it off their face and throw it to someone else, who then had to catch it and put it on their face. and so on. the whole time the game is being played, only the person smiling is allowed to laugh and giggle. the kids really really really enjoyed this game. i wished i had video taped them cause there was a lot of laughing going on!

we are also learning about the letter "M" this week. and when i asked the kids to think of words that start with M, jack responded "fish". then "jackfish". then "grouper fish". he's got a one track mind!

Love the post! You are always so stinkin' cute. Luke loves doing pre-school at your house..afterwards he never wants the fun to end. I showed him this post and he thought it was pretty cool too. Jordan busted up laughing at your "new years" face...i have to admit it is pretty funny:)

Will you be teaching preschool when/if I have little devils of my own. I want you to be their teacher.
