The Christmas Carol Sing Along was a delightful way to start our holiday break, and reflect on the joy of the season!

We wish our Children of The Woodlands community a blessed holiday, and we look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!

'And the angel said unto them, fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people'. -Luke 2:10

Our Christmas trees here at Children of The Woodlands are so beautifully decorated with ornaments made by our very own students! They are precious!

Our focus during Christmas in our classrooms is on baby Jesus' birthday, and a holiday tradition at our preschool is to collect baby gifts in honor of baby Jesus.

Gifts left under our trees will be shared with our church's gift drive for needy families and the Pregnancy Assistance Center North. Participation is optional, but we think it provides a great opportunity to share the true meaning of Christmas with your child! Items that were especially appreciated in the past include diapers, bottles, blankets and formula. The Pregnancy Assistance Center North was thrilled with gently used baby clothes, strollers, toys, and books as well!

Every year we are in awe of the giving nature of our community here at COTW! Thank you all for the wonderful contributions to our Giving Tree!

You may have shopped at H-E-B... but have you ever tried H-E-P?! Our Transition class opened their very own store, and they named it 'Here Everything's Polar Bears' 🐻‍❄️❤️

The Grand Opening included a ribbon cutting ceremony, and a huge celebration 🎉🎉🎉 Between you and me.. the lightning deals at H-E-P are the best in town! The classmates alternate shifts, so you never know who will be working each department or the coveted role of cashier. But one thing they will guarantee is your shopping experience delight! 🤩

Keep them in mind for your upcoming shopping needs! 😉

Our Christmas Family event was fun and festive, and we so enjoyed celebrating together here at Children of The Woodlands! 🌟🎄

The children decorated cookies, created their own unique Christmas ornament, and relaxed with story time... it was a delight to share in the magic of the season with our COTW community!✨📚❤️

What's cookin' this week?!

Well, we have something cookin' here at Children of The Woodlands! Our toddlers class ended their fruit and vegetable unit by cooking up some yummy potatoes 🥔 . They cut the potatoes, drizzled with olive oil, and finished by sprinkling them with salt.

The best part was enjoying them at lunchtime and celebrating a job well done! They were delicious! ❤️👏

Happy Literacy Week! 📚

Our students in the Transition class here at Children of The Woodlands celebrated literacy week with a special activity of reading a class favorite book together, and then took turns acting out a play and reciting the lines from the book. The students especially loved to take a bow and be applauded for their wonderful performances! Bravo! 👏👏👏

Watch out, Hollywood! 🤩

And The Woodlands Firefighters visited twice! 🚒

Both visits were so exciting as the children received a special tour of the firetruck and learned fire safety tips 🧯💯

Thank you to The Woodlands Firefighters for making this such a special experience here at Children of The Woodlands ❤️

The children loved their visit with The Woodlands Firefighters! 🚒

What a special treat it was to have them visit us here at Children of The Woodlands. They gave us a special tour of the firetruck, showed us all the gear that they wear, and discussed fire safety 🧯

We salute these community helpers who serve so sacrificially! ❤️

Let's mix it up... with paint and colors, that is! 🎨

This is a simple, easy, and fun STEAM experiment that really hits home with this age group! This sweet class read Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni, and discussed how combining the colors of blue and yellow... makes green! 💚

And to really enhance their learning, the class used 'bean art' to demonstrate the mixture of colors to create their brand new color.

The One forming light and creating darkness, causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the Lord who does all these". -Isaiah 45:7

Who is loving this cool crisp air today?! We love Fall! 🍁

This is the perfect time of year to bake up some apple treats, and make it an excellent learning opportunity! 🥧

Our Fours class here at Children of The Woodlands got into the Fall spirit and dissected an apple, graphed their favorite apples, enjoyed an apple tasting, and then actually cooked with apples 🍎🍏

Ending the Apple Unit by making apple fritters and praying over the nourishment provided by apples was a class favorite cooking activity! 🍎🧑‍🍳🎉

We are so excited to be back at preschool here at Children of The Woodlands after the long weekend! 🏫❤️

But not all of our learning takes place in the classroom, of course… wonderful hands on learning can indeed take place outside 🌳

One of our classes visited the preschool garden for the first time, and enjoyed gathering items from nature to use in their classroom! These treasures will be used in their science center, and the pine needles and pine cones will be painting tools at the easel 🎨🖼 Sensory bottles and trays will be created using leaves, acorns, pine cones, and magnolia pods 🍁🍃🍂

The most exciting discoveries for the children were the birds nest in the tree 🪺, and the 4 potatoes they dug up that were left over from the classes that planted them last spring! 🥔

Isn’t this just perfect weather for a nature walk?! 💕

Enjoy the long weekend! ❤️

It was the first week of the full schedule for our Toddlers and Two’s classes! 🎉 Let’s give them a hand! 👏👏👏

The first couple of weeks are such a huge accomplishment for our preschool children. When you really digest all that they are doing in these first couple of weeks, it is impossible not to be in awe of them! They are exploring a brand new environment, learning a whole new routine and schedule, and meeting new friends and teachers ❤️

We are so proud of all our classes as they fall into their new routines! They are just flourishing!

Who doesn’t love a good Play dough session?! ✨
And the best part is that it is a wonderful sensory and learning experience for children 🙌💯

Not only is it encouraging creative thinking, but the squeezing, pinching, and pulling movements are strengthening your child’s hand and finger muscles, developing critical fine motor skills, and enhancing hand eye coordination… just to name a few of the early childhood development perks! ❤️

Best of all, the children LOVE creating masterpieces with the play dough. Take a peek at a few of the creations from this week! 🥰

We have recently created a small carline hallway for Children of The Woodlands, and it is currently being transformed and blessed by the artistic talents of Dean Schneider! 🎨🖼 Not only is she an incredibly talented local artist, but also a parishioner of The Woodlands Methodist Church (TWMC).

Have you had the opportunity to see the beautiful artwork in Safari Stop (the indoor playground near our preschool at TWMC)? This was completed in 2006 by Dean, and she graciously accepted our request to continue the theme into our preschool. One positive aspect of the pandemic was that we utilized unused Safari Stop space for carline, which now has become our official carline hallway. This space is very dear to us as it is where we greet each child in the mornings, and where we say our goodbyes and send them home to their families at the end of the school day 🏫 We want this space to be welcoming, warm, and playful! ❤️

What do you think…will the kids love the monkey?!?🐒 We sure do! 🥰
