My absence, NAEYC, and a new unit on the way!

I am so sorry for my lack of posting. This has been a tough couple of days with my close friend losing her mom. I have traveled 8 hours to be with her and I am getting ready to go to the funeral and then travel another 8 hours back to Lubbock. If you don't mind, would you say a prayer for her? This is such a difficult time in her life and I want to shower her with prayers and love.

I also got word that NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) will be coming to visit our preschool within the coming weeks. This is our accreditation year, so things will be a little stressful until they come. Have y'all heard of NAEYC or have any of you been through the accreditation process? This will be my first time, so I am a bit nervous.

Things will be back to normal for me tomorrow and I am currently working on some activities to use during our Pets unit, which is next week. Hopefully some of y'all will be able to use them as a supplement. Do y'all have a time when you study pets? If not, is there a particular topic you would be interested in seeing activities for?

Have a wonderful rest of the week!
