Our staff truly are superheroes! They're able to transform a classroom into a beautiful rainforest, make playdoh and plastic figurines into dinosaur fossils, and create the inside of a rocket ship from cardboard and bottle tops! Preschool magic is REAL!

Today's the last day of Life Cycle week in preschool! This week, students have been learning about caterpillars, butterflies, and even grouchy ladybugs. 🦋🐛🐞

Our teachers take our thematic units to the next level -- to the ceiling to be exact! Each of our classes was greeted by a rainforest installation to kick off Life Cycle Week.

Galilee Christian School will remain CLOSED at this time.

Our after-school program will not reopen until LCPS students are able to 100% in-person learning for all students.

Our preschool program will consider reopening in January 2021. Reopening protocols will be reevaluated in the late fall. All registered families will be notified as soon as possible.

We recognize this decision will present a challenge for our families as they face this unprecedented change in their child’s education. The decision to remain closed was made with the utmost care and consideration in the context of all the information available.

All of us at Galilee thank you for your support. We are so proud to be part of a community who cares deeply about children and their safety.

Peanut Butter and Jellyfish

It’s the last day of the school year and I can’t believe it is over. What a wild school year this has been! While our students were not in our classrooms for as long as we would have liked, they will forever be in our hearts! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️It is quite safe to say we will never forget this group of preschoolers.

I’ve got one last ocean story to share today. We’re going to read Peanut Butter and Jellyfish by Jarrett J. Krosoczka. Enjoy Peanut Butter and Jellyfish’s adventure through the ocean and the brave rescue of Lobster!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqJR-YkV5ko

Go raid your art supply stash for one more craft! Today we’re making jellyfish. You can use all sorts of materials to make jellyfish tentacles … yarn, ribbon, streamers, colored paper clips. Let your imagination go wild!

Don’t forget to take a swim through our printables of the week!

[06/04/20]   Grab your goggles and scuba masks! We are going deep sea diving today. 🐙🐠🐬🐳🦀

Today’s story is called Way Down Deep in the Deep Blue Sea by Jan Peck. As you’re watching, look for all the different creatures living deep down in the deep blue sea. Do you hear a pattern in the story?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZJ3OzwPiNA&t=12s

We’re going to create our own ocean creatures today. Gather up some toilet paper rolls, pipe cleaners, paint, egg cartons, and get crafting! I’m going to make the toilet paper roll crab and octopus. I’m even going to use a toilet paper roll and yarn to make a jellyfish.

Don’t swim away just yet, go explore the printables folder for more ocean fun!

Courageous Conversations

So much is happening in our world right now and our children have so many questions. We've curated some wonderful picture books to help you have courageous conversations about race and to teach children how to stand up for themselves and others. Now more than ever, we must help our children to be compassionate and strong.

galileechristianschool.org From Leigh Pappalardo ... Like so many others, amid a global pandemic that has claimed thousands of lives, I am shaken by the currently escalating social unrest and what I can do to make a meaningful contribution to working towards lasting change. The societal upheaval that is occurring challenges m...

Paper Plate Seahorse - Kid Craft

Fish live in the sea. Sharks live in the sea. Who else lives in the sea? Why Mister Seahorse, of course!

We’re going to read Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle. As Mister Seahorse swims through the sea, how many other fish does he meet? Who is taking care of all the eggs?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yoqxhIi4HbQ

I hope you still have some paper plates left over from yesterday’s craft because we’re going to need them to make a seahorse!

Today we’re going try something a little bit different for our reading … POETRY! Let’s read Commotion in the Ocean by Giles Andreae and listen carefully for rhyming words. Rhyming skills are predictor of reading success and poetry is a great way to practice.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9pRhgZ8Jffs

If you’re feeling artsy today, I have the perfect beach-themed craft for you. We’re going to make seashells! All you need are paper plates, scissors, yarn, and a hole punch. You can use paint, crayons, or markers to decorate your shell.

The last week of preschool is here … I can’t believe our school year is almost over. It has certainly been a year like no other!

As is our tradition, the last week of the year is always BEACH WEEK! I love going to the beach, listening to the ocean, walking on the sand, and looking for seashells. Do you? 🏖🏖🏖

Today’s book is another wordless picture book and is a personal favorite of mine. We’re going to read Wave by Suzy Lee. Watch closely to see the little girl’s adventures at the shore and listen to the sound of the ocean.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MiEPS1P7i4

Now go find your watercolor paints and some salt and get ready to make your own underwater scene. The directions call for oil pastels, but a simple white crayon will work just as well!

Once again, we’ve got a packed folder of free printables for the week!

Friday is here and to close out camping week, we’re going to read Boris Goes Camping by Carrie Weston. Miss Cluck takes her class on a camping trip and several mishaps happen along the way. Luckily, Boris is there to help save the day!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhj0IIxv-hY

I’ve got some fun art activities lined up for today. You can make popsicle stick tents, handprint campfires, or raid the recycling bin and make a pretend campfire!

Look for the dramatic play resources in our printables file so you can set up your own campsite!
