Prints and Bread of the Vegetable Variety.....

We made vegetable prints ... Carrots, asparagus, corn and broccoli.  All are healthy for our bodies!

Zucchini is a yummy vegetable. We thought some delicious zucchini bread might be just the right way to end our vegetable week. The children measured, poured and mixed.....

Warm, tasty zucchini bread! What a treat!

A Terrific Tea Party!

One fine day the preschool had quite a lovely tea party. It was a formal affair of course,  all guests were required to wear a tie. Ties and Tea , we are learning about the letter T!

Tall Trees for Mother's Day

Beautiful framed watercolored trees for all of our amazing mothers. We used a paintbrush for the first part of the painting; blue for the sky, green for the grass.

We used a straw to make the trees.

The cards were made from paper the children made during "P" week. Everyone signed their name, all alone or with a bit of help. We hope all our Imagine mothers had a very special Mother's Day. Thanks for sharing your wonderful children with us.

VPK journal writing

The VPK students made journals. We talked about the kinds of things we might write in a journal. We read a book that explains what a memory is. The children all picked a memory and wrote and drew about it in their journals.


The children made snakes out of paper plates.

We spent the week talking and learning about snakes. First we talked about what we already knew about snakes:  "Some snakes are poisonous, you should leave them alone, they can bite, they are different colors, they have fangs, snake starts with the letter S." Next we talked about what we would like to learn about snakes: "Do snakes hibernate?, where do they live?, can you bring a snake to the vet?, what do they eat?, how is a snake born?, how long do snakes live?" We ended the week talking about what we learned about snakes: There are 3000 varieties of snakes in the world, snakes are born from eggs, they are reptiles, snakes that live in colder climates hibernate in the winter. snakes eat animals, a snakes life span is about 20 years.
