Milestones is a preschool designed to enhance the young child's abilities to interact positively in the group setting. Provocative activities intelligently engage the young mind and promote the assets of friendship. Talking is highly encouraged, modeled and facilitated, as children learn the value of expressing their thoughts, needs and ideas to each other, skills that are so helpful for future school success. Our school values supporting community through positive, intentional relationships.

Eggs, eggs, eggs!
Last week each of us received a hard boiled egg to take care of. We named them and made them a cozy place to rest so they wouldn't break!
Zoe colored her egg yellow and named
it accordingly. . .
Elliott made a car seat for his egg, Tulip, and gave it a ride.
We enjoyed the predictability and rhyming in Dr. Seuss's, Green Eggs and Ham. We also playacted the story . . .
and...endeavored to make our OWN green eggs!
Everyone was excited to crack their own egg.
Scrambled eggs, whether green or not, we found, are quite easy to cook! And...we discovered we DO indeed like green eggs and ham!
Other occurances this week included Kaden enjoying making a stucture with all of the wooden signs...
We did many other egg activities included coloring and painting egg shapes and familiarizing ourselves with the way the word egg is spelled. We enjoyed hiding and opening and closing the colorful plastic eggs. Elliott discovered they make great instruments, too! We also dyed many eggs (sorry the pictures didn't turn out!).
Karsten concentrated nicely on a block tower.
Zoe likes to line up and count the little bears...
Our Amarylis continues to grow tall!
Our stuffed bunny led us on a game of finding some treats...
