This week was the five senses! Roo learned a cute little song about them. They made popcorn on taste day, had a dance party for hearing, did a scent experiment for smell and all kinds of fun stuff. I was hard pressed to come up with a "senses outfit" as she requested. We went with the octopus shirt because she has lots of tentacles to touch and big eyelashes to see trough. Riley's my mini Miss Frizzle. They even had a big wet sponge fight for Wet Wednesday.
We found out earlier this summer that the teacher Roo was supposed to have for VPK has been promoted to director of the preschool at a different location. We were totally bummed, but we figured her PreK3 teacher (who we adore) would move up to VPK. In a strange twist of fate we were told this week that Roo's Prek3 teacher is moving up to VPK at the other campus! My heart broke now both wonderful teachers are leaving. I'm so grateful she got to spend the summer with them. Riley was sad too, but she recovered much quicker than Mom. She told her teacher "Miss D, I didn't know you once, too. Maybe the new teacher will be great!" My sweet girl.
Riley has been writing up a storm lately, I love it. I don't know a lot of 4 year olds who would be concerned about correctly labeling the flowers they colored. I love how differently my kids learn, Isaac never wrote a word on his own. Isaac is a straight up visual learner. He made diagrams with pencil, they were great. The second picture is her would-have-been teacher for VPK. I love it. I'm thinking of framing it and giving to her the last week of summer camp.
