Outer Space Unit Pictures


Greetings Preschool Families!

What a great Outer Space Unit we just wrapped up! This is always one of my favorite units that we do and it is one that could stretch over many weeks or months! The children always love learning about what is most familiar to them -- the sky that they see from their own windows and back yards. Throughout the month, we became astronauts and journeyed further into space and were able to learn  about what is going on in that "final frontier". In addition to various developmental objectives, during this unit we learned about some environmental components of the Earth and Space, weather and seasons, and the sky through various types of literature, math activities, art projects, and of course play. We were able to snap some cute photos along the way...check them out!!


Here's Benji controlling the rocket ship from the CCP Space Center:




Our "glow room" space control center:



Galactic Gak:





Here are some cute little astronauts and one cute little space martian:









Parachute fun:


Experimenting with GeoBoards:


Making planets using Spin Art:


Controlling rockets using magnets:






...and then we ended things with a super fun field trip to the UMD Planetarium:



What a "BLAST"!! Well, now that March is upon us we dive right into more fun & learning with an art appreciation unit we call "Creative Me" plus a whole month dedicated to Dr. Seuss! Stay tuned for some more fun new photos to come.

Warmest Regards,

CCP

Fairy Tale Photos



Greetings CCP Families!

We just got done wrapping up yet another fun and exciting unit. Our Fairy tale month was a total blast. The preschoolers got to explore fairy tales through literacy, math, science, music, and of course lots of play; and as usual we captured some fun pictures along the way. Check them out:

Here are some preschoolers having fun in our dramatic play castle center:










To encourage creativeness, language development, and motor skills we had a puppet station set up in our big room. Here's Will being the big bad wolf!:




 As usual we did a lot of crafts and hands-on projects. Here's Hope with her beautiful homemade crown and wand:

Sorting beans on for "Jack and the Beanstalk":





 When we weren't immersed in fairy-tale projects, we found ourselves doing a lot of snow play (inside and out!!):





And of course we've been prepping for Valentines Day. Here are some sweeties making "Love Berries". 


That's all for now. With our Outer Space unit in full swing, and a big Valentine's Day party right around the corner, check back soon as there will be more pictures where these came from! Enjoy the rest of the week, everyone.

Warmest regards,
CCP

Christmas Pictures


Greetings from CCP!!

We hope everyone had a beautiful and relaxing holiday break. December was an absolute blast with the preschoolers; nothing makes prepping for the holidays more magical than doing it with little ones. We had quite the busy month--check it out!:



 Candy cane science experiments:




Santa's Workshop in the dramatic play:



We did a fun experiment where we made jingle bells dance!:

We did a small "Christmas Around the World" unit. First stop: Mexico! The kids had fun making pinatas, quesadillas and Mexican hot chocolate, and they learned how to sing "Feliz Navidad":


 We also took a peek at England where we learned that's where Christmas cards originated from:

And of course we had our Holiday Program. The kids were adorable as usual:



And then on our last day before the break, we went Christmas caroling around the neighborhood. The children and neighbors enjoyed it alike:






Happy New Year and we look forward to having everyone back at school!

Sincerely,

CCP
