Gobble ’till you Wobble

We are just hours away from the long weekend, and we could not be more thankful for what it entails….pie, pie and more pie! We are thankful for Thanksgiving!

Before we wobble on out of here, let’s go ahead and have a look at what happened this week at The House. It was a busy one, with Suzie Sushine, Mr. McCoy and Karate, and Yoga visiting, and we also had Madame S start her French Fridays too!

This week we will start in the Senior Preschool classroom where they huffed, and they puffed, and they huffed some more to make a mountain of bubbles.

They worked on both their number and letter recognition…

As well as their pincer grasp when tracing their letters.

They worked their fine motor skills when painting with cotton swab to dab the letters, and dipping Lego pieces into paint to later create corn on the cob. They also worked those skills when manipulating the tongs to transfer the paperclips from one rock to the next!

And because Thanksgiving is around the corner, there were a lot of Turkey’s in the classroom…

See below to see the Wonder Board after a week’s worth of work captured.


We will continue with the Preschool classroom where it was all things Fall…

The Preschool class made Playdough together during their Cookery class this week!  Each child had a turn to mix, pour, and sprinkle the ingredients together, and got the chance to smell the sweet cinnamon that gave the Playdough that Fall-like scent.

They got very focused when it came to decorating their own pumpkins…

From Preschool’s focus to Toddler’s focus, we move up the stairs to have a look at what the youngest of The House got up too…they too took decorating very seriously.

They kept their hands busy in the Sensory bin, where it was all sand-play!


They used their problem-solving, and fine motor skills when it came to fitting and finding the right hole for each shape, and when they pushed together, or pulled apart the blocks.

We will end this week in the Junior Preschool classroom where they worked on a few self-help skills…like putting on their shoes….

Even though it may look like that baby doll’s leg is bent the wrong way, no babies were harmed during this practice. 

And preparing for when they have to open their own lunches…opening and closing the Tupperware.


They also kept calm while drawing in the sand…


And were all smiles while gathering all the animals from Old McDonald’s Farm.


The next two photos will need your imagination because all though it may look like an ordinary cardboard box, these boxes actually transformed into a bus, a rocket-ship, and a fire truck…and these two were just along for the ride.

That wraps up another week at The House.

From us to all of you, we wish you a very….
