Yesterday when we were playing outside, we decided to make a Hopscotch game for everyone to play with! We had so much fun enjoying the nice Spring weather.
As part of our "Things that Grow" unit, this week in small groups we have been planting grass seeds! The students got to scoop dirt into a cup, plant a handful of grass seeds, and continue to water them every day. We will be observing and documenting the change we see as our grass begins to grow!
On Thursday, we used different colored paper strips to make some 3D art! These preschoolers were told that before they glued their paper strips down, that they had to do something to them first (cut them, fold them, curl them, etc.) Their creative minds were shining bright as they created their own 3-dimensional art!
As part of Wednesday's celebration of the Week of the Young Child, we worked together to create a special banner with Ms. Sarah Marx's preschool class! We all worked together and used paint to make a handprint mural for our hallway. Come check it out!
Happy Week of the Young Child!
April 16-20 is NAEYC's Week of the Young Child! We decided to celebrate with something different each day this week. Monday we had "Music Monday," and Tuesday we had "Tasty Tuesday" and enjoyed a special popcorn treat during the day!
New in our Sensory Table: Dirt!
Since we have been learning all about "Things that Grow," we now have dirt in our sensory table! There are also plastic flowers for the students to pretend plant. Happy gardening!
Painting with Vegetables
As part of our new unit on Things that Grow, we read the story "The Ugly Vegetables." This story talked about a family planting a vegetable garden. Today, we used vegetables to paint!
This week, we began our new unit on "Things that Grow." We learned that seeds and beans grow, so we planted our own lima beans! The students began by studying and making observations on the beans, and then drew a picture of the bean in their science journals. Then, the preschoolers put a wet paper towel in a bag, and dropped the lima bean inside. Lastly, we taped the beans onto our window in order for them to get sunlight. We will be observing them every day and documenting any changes in the beans in our science journals!
Enjoying the Spring Weather!
We have had so much fun playing outside and enjoying the warm weather the past few days! While we were outside, we used sidewalk chalk to create drawings on the school's courtyard.
