Hello from Mother Goose! This month we had an egg-citing time coloring eggs just take a look below at all of the fun we had!
Preschool in San Francisco CA
Mother Goose School believes that the development of the child's mind, body and character are important. In order to educate the whole child, our daily program includes balanced instruction and a well-rounded curriculum.
In A-Level for Health and Nutrition month we made a colorful fruit salad! Each student in the class brought one piece of fruit that we added to the fruit salad! Ms. Linda and Ms. Isabel cut up each fruit then added it to a big bowl, each of us took turns mixing the salad together! At the end we all had a wonderful healthy afternoon snack, it was delicious!
Today in class, C-Level made apple pancakes for A Week. Ms. Mae & Ms. Doris helped the children add flour, egg, oil, applesauce and water to make the batter. They took turns mixing the ingredients until all was blended and ready to be placed on the skillet. As the batter was cooking, the children read Pancakes, Pancakes! during circle time. The time had come to enjoy their delicious creation. Students topped off their hard-work with some tasty syrup!
As you all may know, this month’s theme is Show Time. Last week, D/E level children went off to “clown college” with Ms. Diana. They practiced their silliest routines, dressed in colorful clothes and even wore big red clown noses! You can watch their performance below.
Suzy Q made a visit to Mother Goose this week!
All levels gathered around to watch her theatrical performance dressed in gigantic clown shoes and bright pink hair. A few children even volunteered to help Suzy Q carry out her tricks. Everyone enjoyed her surprises and silliness.
This week, the C-level children practiced their culinary skills by making smoothies. They cut up strawberries and bananas while Ms. Mae and Ms. Dorris added the fruit, yogurt, honey and vanilla into a blender. The students were able to enjoy the healthy snack they had made.
This past month, Ms. Diana worked with the D-level students to learn “Big Yellow Taxi.” The students made creative props which they used while singing along and stomping their feet. Some students had solos while others chose to lead the chorus. BWEST-level came to view the show, bringing their own handmade tickets they created in class.
Thanks to everyone who showed up to watch the children perform the annual Multicultural Show! If you missed it, or just want to watch the fun again, check out the video below.
In celebration of this month's theme (Water, Water Everywhere!) Ranger Mike came in to talk to the children all about water and our environment. He showed us how rainfall and runoff water collects different things in the city than in the forest.
We then talked about how it is important not to litter and how we should always recycle when we can! He also brought some Ranger gear to try on.
We had lots of fun learning about water with Ranger Mike! Check out the photos below.
Tortoises, guinea pigs and tenrecs, oh my! Today the SF Zoomobile visited Mother Goose and brought along some cute critters for us to see. We learned that a giant desert tortoise eats cacti and that a tenrec is a mini hedgehog from Madagascar. We love to learn about animals in an interactive environment. Thanks Zoomobile!!
For Valentine's Day this year, the whole School participated in a fun and educational paper-making project with Ms. Emily! The classes took turns shredding old paper, blending it up and then pressing it out into new, original pieces. They added glitter and flowers and formed it into different shapes. A special shout out to our parent volunteers for helping each class out!
We can't help falling in love with D-Level! Check out their jailhouse-rocking rendition of some of the King's most beloved songs.
B-West practices what to do during an earthquake. It's always important to practice what to do in an emergency (especially SF earthquakes!) Our School also practices monthly fire drills with the fire department. Talk to your child about what to do in an emergency at home and you can even have your own practice drills. If you would like to know more about Mother Goose Emergency Protocols, just ask our office!
Have you ever read the story of stone soup? It's all about strangers coming together to create a magic soup from just a stone (and a little help from everyone). D-level reenacted that same story this week! They each brought in a vegetable they wanted to contribute to the soup. Then they all practiced cutting up the veggies and added it to the single stone in the pot. Two days later, it was cooked and ready! Everyone had a blast eating and sharing their stone soup.
Mother Goose School enrolls children between two and six years old. Every child is welcome. Our daily program includes balanced instruction and a well-rounded curriculum.
