Burke Mountain Preschool Traditions

As with each year, we make Christmas presents for the whole family to enjoy. This year, we did Cranberry Pancake mix. We also annually bake goodies for our families to enjoy on our Christmas Party/Concert day, with Mr. I and the Rainbow Singers joining us to provide entertainment. This year, we were lucky enough to have a special visitor drop by on our party day…SANTA! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone from Burke ┬áMountain Preschool, we will see you in 2018!

Windblown

Some children at the preschool took inspiration from a circle time book and created their own versions using just simple shapes as shown in the book.

Social Responsibility Field Trip

Even young children can understand that some people don’t have food, socks, jackets or toys. This year, our annual Social Responsibility field trip was to the SHARE Food Bank, after our time at Thrifty Foods. Following our field trip, we began working on a group picture that will go up as a piece of artwork on the food bank wall.

Searching For Secret Messages

We wrote a secret message for our friends from a different class with candles, and they can discover our message by painting over it with water colours!

Painting With Our Hands

More Colours

An an extension of our feather experiment, we added colour droplets first to water, and it immediately changed colour to match the added drops. Then, the same procedure was done in oil, and the colours remained in the form that they were added. The children were incredibly engaged in this activity, it was so great to see!
