Dental Health Week

National Dental Health Week!
This week at Powell Place, we celebrated Dental Hygiene. Our staff and kids were very creative this week showing our little friends how we should brush twice a day and floss after eating.

With the help from our parents, we used egg cartons as teeth and had our friends to practice brushing the plaque and caries from their teeth. Our friends really enjoyed it.

After using the toothbrushes to practice, our little friends were able to color teeth and then use their brushes to erase the coloring. This demonstration was incredible. Our little were fascinated with the idea that their coloring (eating food) could be brushed away with toothpaste and a toothbrush! What an amazing week!

Snow Day

Finally, There’s Snow!

Last Friday was an incredible day! Our friends were so excited that Tennessee finally got a real dose of snow!

The snow covered the grass and all the trees, and it made such a wonderful sight!

Our Pre-K 2 teachers collected some snow and allowed our pre-k friends to have a snow sensory activity! They all had a blast! Finally, There was Snow.

Snowball Fight

No Snow, No Problem!

The weather outside has been very interesting. One day we have rain and the next it’s sunny, all while in the season of winter. But inside Powell Place, we want our friends to enjoy the winter in any way possible.

This week, we had a snowball fight. All our teachers prepared over time, random pieces of paper to ball up and use as snowballs.

Our Preschool 2 class had an absolute blast. The heat was on and they were so excited. This is an activity that can and should be done with our families. I’m sure the fun will never end!

Olaf Visit

Visit from Our Favorite Frozen Character, Olaf!

On Friday our favorite Frozen friend came to visit us. Our little friends were so excited and happy to see Olaf from the movie Frozen.

This visit was the most anticipated visit since the year started. Many of our friends have been asking if Olaf was ever coming. When he finally showed up, it was the best day ever! Thanks Olaf!

Eat Yellow Wear Yellow

 You Are What You Eat!!

Today we wore Yellow and ate Yellow. It was such an awesome turn out.

All month long, every Wednesday, we wear a certain color and eat a certain color food. On the second Wednesday, we wore Orange and ate Carrots. Last Wednesday, we wore Green and ate Broccoli. Today we word Yellow and ate Corn, and next Wednesday, we’ll wear Red and eat Strawberries.

This has been such a great activity and all of our friends have enjoyed every bit of it.
