Teach Preschool in the news: Save those easter eggs!

This morning, I had a special guest join me for my three minute segment on local Indiana Fox 59 Morning News…

Tristan and his parents joined me at the news studio bright and early this morning to present my newest segment – see video below.  Everyone pitched in to help me get ready…

First I have to set out all the props I will need on this large rolling bar…

Some of the paint spilled out of my eggs on the car ride over, so Tristan’s dad and I wiped them all down and tried to salvage the left over paint…

Once we had everything up and running, Tristan and I did a practice run at “cracking open the eggs”.

Then we had to put on our microphones…

And take our places inside the news studio…

Hello??  – we’re over here on the opposite side of the studio…

And in just a few minutes, Angela came and joined us so we could begin…

Tristan was such a big hit that I don’t think anyone heard a word I had to say! LOL!

I have already asked Tristan and his mom and dad to join me again some time…

 

After we were done, we had to take the microphones back off…

And that was our day! So much fun!  Our three minute segment is below…

      That is what I was thinking – it was like taking a mini field trip – LOL! I think I had the advantage of the lights in the studio and this is why the photos came out so nicely. It shows that I need to do a better job with lighting at home.

    Just wanted to say I think it is such a great idea to do segments like this! I love the fact that this offers parents some quick, easy and inexpensive activities to do with their children! (and probably on a program they may watch already!) Also such a great way to help people understand why such activities are so important for young children!

      Thank you Pam. I really do value the opportunity to share in this way. Even if it is only short little snippets – I hope it still makes a difference:)
