‘H’ is the letter of the week. ‘H’ is for happy, hearts, Halloween and hummingbirds. I love letter ‘H’ and I’m not trying to brag as our AC friend Linda Louise Johnson has lost her ‘H’, here she wants to know Where the H is my H, Toshiba? I’m truly sorry about her lose and I hope she gets it back soon.
A happy birthday was had by all who attended my friend, Lori’s 50th Birthday bash last night, I am happy for her as she looks 25. She makes me happy and I’m glad she’s my friend. If I could do a music note symbol right now like my AC friend Nancy Canfield then I would insert it to the tune of Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you dear Lori, I love you.
Happy Hours Preschool Art Projects for H.
The letter of the week ,’H’ at the little preschool , where I work brings hoorays and hoots for the sound bags the kids brought in all week, as part of a homework project from helicopters to hippos, and happy Halloweens the kids had fun and honestly were happy. As the kids brought them in to class they shared their discoveries enthusiastically with the group which garnered them a bright ‘hooray’ sticker.
A simple Halloween Jack-o-lantern can be made by simply outlining a big orange circle on construction paper, also outlining 3 simple triangles in black and a big toothy grin, to create a cute face on the big orange circle. Simply colored, cut, and pasted.
Hot dogs for lunch and hopscotch for play we had fun all week learning the sound of ‘H’. Exercise brought more hoots and hoorays when we acted like horses as we galloped, twirled like a helicopter and flew like a hummingbird. It was a little hard for me this week at school as I was a substitute for a vacationing teacher and I was trying to understand the routine as best as I could, but with 11/ 4 year olds who obviously knew more than I did tried ever so hard to run the show. Who am I to stop the great minds of our new leaders?
We painted a white letter ‘H’, which was glued to a brown piece of construction paper using watercolors, and we stamped triangles with orange paint on a cut out heart. (Note: incorporated into this project is the color and shape of the week.) Color, cut, paste is my motto and the children follow along as best they can. Being new to Happy Hours preschool I was given some funny looks when I said “paste, huh? What’s paste? They all chimed- O.K. glue! “
