Went fishing. But we are back!

I apologize for the hiatus, but with Summer coming to an end, yours truly took advantage and enjoyed a few days off to soak up the rays!

Now back to our regular scheduled programming…

We had a picnic with our Teddy bears the first week of August, and then we read and discovered all the classics from Eric Carle the second week, which brings us to this week where we talked all about…rain

the (drum roll please!)………………………………………………………………………….RAIN FOREST!

It’s time to take you through the House, and see the adventures the children got up to this week while exploring deep into the rain forest. We will start up the stairs in the Toddler One room…

Colouring their slimy soon to be snakes!
Using cotton swabs to paint lizards. Did you think you’d EAR that before?
Lizards, Snakes and Toucans…oh my! Those Toucans were made with our footprints so they should be called TOE-cans right?

As we venture into the room next door, we head into the Toddler Two part of the forest.

Rain forest in a bin. 
Have you been to a rain forest before? It’s such a zoo. 
Snakes on a table. 
The Toddlers putting the rain in rain forest. 

From Toddlers to Preschool we go. And as you neared the Preschool doors you would have heard the Animal Boogie coming from the speakers….


“Down in the jungle in the midday heat,
What can you see stomping it’s feet?
With a stompy stomp here and a stompy stomp there,
What’s the creature stomping it’s feet?”

If you want to hear it live, Ms. Shannon is more than willing to boogie!

Let’s see what the Preschoolers were up to…

Hands and feet to make Toucans, glue and patience to make frogs, and a loooooong time to complete the snakes. But it’s complete.


Work hard. Play harder.

Let’s leave these animals, and check in on the Seniors of the House.

You say Rain Forest, we say…Giraffe!

Stompy stomp here. Stompy stomp there.

Where in the world are the rain forests?

After venturing through the rain forest, there’s nothing better than having a picnic with your friends…

And to stretch out the week, we ended with our Jungle Yoga. A special thank you goes out to Ms. Rogers for being the Yogi of the House.



The House this week may have been a zoo, or jungle, or rain forest, but stay turned because….”duh-dun, duh-dun, duh-dun…” next week will be a splash!

Have a wonderful weekend!
