Making Easter Bunnies
Today at Epiphany's Toddler Time program, the Easter Bunny came! Then, he also stopped by our classroom to say hello! What a special surprise.
Since we have been learning about Shadows and Reflections, we used mirrors to see our reflections and draw our self portraits! They all turned out great and so unique.
Easter Sensory Table
Since Easter is right around the corner, we changed up what is inside of our sensory table! It is now filled with "Easter grass" and plastic lettered eggs. The preschoolers try to match the uppercase letters to the lowercase letters to create Easter eggs!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
This morning when we came to school, we found our classroom in a giant mess! It turned out that a Leprechaun came into our classroom over night and caused some trouble! We also found a note from Lucky the Leprechaun and a special pot of gold under our rainbows! What a special surprise.
Then, we graphed Lucky Charm marshmallows to see what marshmallow we had the most of! We also got to make fun Leprechaun hats. What a fun day, Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Lately, we have been talking a lot about St. Patrick's Day and leprechauns. We decided to make our very ow Leprechaun traps to try and get a pot of gold! First, we all brainstormed what we would do if we ever found a pot of gold. Then, we worked together in teams using various classroom items to build leprechaun traps! So much creativity and teamwork!
Rainbows for St. Patrick's Day
For "Fun Friday" today, we read the story "The Littlest Leprechaun" and then made our own rainbows! We made fluffy clouds that the rainbows come out of. It was so sweet seeing these Preschoolers help each other out with their rainbows. We're hoping if we hang these rainbows up in our room, then maybe a Leprechaun will come to our classroom for St. Patrick's Day!
It Looked Like Spilt Milk!
Today at school, we read the story "It Looked Like Spilt Milk!" This story talks all about different shapes and different cloud shapes. Then, we all created our very own cloud paintings!
Today at school, we got to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday and Read Across America Day! With Ms. Sarah Marx's class, we did different Dr. Seuss themed centers. We colored Dr. Seuss pictures, made "Cat in the Hat" cup structures, and made our own Thing 1-18 hats!
Also, as part of Read Across America Day, these preschoolers got to bring in their favorite books from home and share about it with their class! Happy reading!
Today, we read Dr. Seuess's book "The Lorax." After reading the story, we then watched the movie "The Lorax" to compare and contrast the book to the movie. Also, while the movie was on, we made our very own Truffula trees from the story. After the movie, we made our own Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting The Lorax book and the movie. What a fun day!
