Meadowgarten: May 6 - 10

Greetings Meadowgarten Families!

This past week was full of fun in the sun!  The children were so excited to play in the creek.  There they enjoyed the rope swing, wading from one side to the other, skipping stones, and building sandcastles.  Smiles and laughs were abundant! 

In light of the warmer weather, we skipped some of our warm snacks in favor of fresh fruits and veggies and popcorn. During snack, the students heard the story of The Little Red Hen. The hen lived on a beautiful farm with many wonderful friends.  The hen was a very industrious worker but when he appealed to his friends for help planting, watering and harvesting the wheat, they were always too busy to help. Once the wheat was milled into the flour, the hen set out to bake some delicious bread.  See if your Meadowgartener can finish the story for you! 

 We celebrated Van’s half birthday on Friday.  The children love hearing Ki Holly tell the birthday story.  Although familiar, it is exciting and new each time it is told for a different child.  The students enjoyed hearing memories of Van as a baby.  Thank you to Van’s family for the fruit, whipped cream and muffins!

Thank you! Thank You! Thank you! We are so very appreciative of all of the kind words and beautiful gifts we received throughout the week for Teacher Appreciation Week.  Each day in the Meadowgarten is a gift.  We are so thankful for the time we have been afforded with each and every child.  We feel so honored to be their teachers! 

We are already feeling nostalgic about this past year but we are geared up for one more week in the Meadowgarten.  Please remember sunscreen, bug spray, water shoes, and a change of clothes!  Also, a wet bag or grocery sack is very helpful for clothing soaked from creek play! 

Lastly, we will have Field Day on Wednesday starting first thing in the morning!  Please send your child in their bathing suit or other clothing that is comfortable to get wet in.  

Kindly,

Ki Amy and Ki Holly
