First Day of Pre-K

Today we had our first day of Pre-K for the girls! We were all very excited to get started. I have been working a lot over the last few months on getting everything set up and planned for this year, and today was finally the day! We got through *almost* everything I wanted to do today. 

Both of the girls will be doing mostly the same thing, which you can read more about here. Today things took a bit longer than I anticipate it will on other days because we were getting acquainted with supplies, their binders, and how to do everything. I won't lie, there were some tears, and some frustrations, but I think it will be a great year! I had not really thought through what to do with the littles super thoroughly and that did prove to be pretty difficult, but hopefully it will get a little easier as we get into the swing of things. 
Here are just a few phone pics from our morning. We did a lot of other things as well, but I was a little busy teaching to take pictures ;) 

Working in their binders took f-o-r-e-v-e-r today!! They were wanting to use a different color for every little detail on the thankful page, color the clothes on the temperature page in such detail, etc. It was really cute to see them getting so into it and really taking their time, however, I think we'll have to speed that part up in the future ;) I didn't anticipate it taking quite as long as it did. 
We did a Bible lesson. This week we are learning about the Tower of Babel and the trait of God is that He is Glorious. Our verse for the week is Psalm 111:3. We also learned more about the letter Tt and did some reading and activities with that, as well as our sight word for the week which is the word 'a'. We did a few other things and then moved onto the more active stuff. They both loved this muffin tray activity which was just fine motor practice of them transferring the pom poms with tongs. 
 I just LOVE watching them learn and seeing what their little minds come up with! I kind of just left them to it for awhile since they were having fun and when I came back they were sorting into each cup by it! Who knew such a simple activity they would love so much.
We also did a craft involving a tiger and contact paper. They turned out pretty hilarious!
I am excited to watch my girls learn and grow this year and blessed to be teaching them!
