Labor day weekend

Here is what we did over Labor Day Weekend:

Ate Pizza at Two Jacks in Springville

Rode in an Ice Cream truck ride at Walmart

Watched BYU beat Oklahoma!!! Crazy!

Played Battleship to entertain the kids while we watched the game

Tried on my hair things and hats during the game

Put together a giant Halloween floor puzzle and discovered it glowed in the dark! Also, during the game.

Talked about how we would finger paint and play the video game after the football game was over.

Finger painting with glitter, after the game.

Played a Sponge Bob video game we rented, after the football game. It was hard to figure out.

Fed the ducks, twice. The kids got in trouble for chasing the ducks at the first park (no pics of that)

Went to Bridal Veil Falls

Celebrated my sister's birthday and my mom made YUMMY cake!!!

preschool curriculum

I have started a new blog! I will be posting weekly class themes, ideas etc. This is mainly for my benefit as I am starting to forget what we do month to month and year to year! Let me know what you think. Good or bad. See the link at the top of my blog!

Surprise on my shoulder!!

There are two things in life that I hate:



I will swear and run around like a crazy person until the hornet/wasp or mouse is caught and killed. Keep this in mind and note my calm response as you read about what happened today in preschool":

We were outside playing on the playground. It was time to come inside so we started rounding up all the preschool kiddos. We went inside and everyone sat in a circle on the rug. We started reading "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What do you See?" as a group. We were all the way to "Children, Children what do you see?" and one of my students who rarely speaks must have thought we were directing the statement at him because he started pointing at me and yelling "Oh no! Oh no!" I looked down at my right shoulder and saw this staring me in the face

Under normal circumstance I would have said "Son of a B$%#@" and ran around like a crazy person but instead I just camly said, "Uh Oh I have a friend on my shoulder. Miss Dana can you come kill it?" She swatted at it and it flew into one of the little girls tutu skirts (no worries three girls had those on today...how cute is that?) Miss Dana smacked the part of the skirt that was on the ground and killed the little pest. Needless to say we did not finish the book and it was luckily time to go home. I was a little shaken up so I was so happy to see him

standing in the doorway as the students left. Jason left his physics book in my car and came by to get it. It was so good to see him. He ended up going with me to the store after school. Then, we went and put flowers on my grandma's grave for her birthday. He is my favorite person to hang out with. I love it!!
