This week, we turned our dramatic play area into a grocery store! Using many different food containers and boxes (thanks to all who donated), the students are able to pretend grocery shop. We even use shopping lists to write down what we need, and money to "buy" the food to bring home in a shopping bag. So much fun!
Today, we took our first class field trip to the Garfield Park Conservatory! We had a blast riding on the school bus (some of us for the first time!), seeing many different plants and habitats, and even getting to touch and feel many of the plants. We also had a great time playing on the slide. What an awesome day!!
To celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, we started the day by taste testing Pan de los Muertos! Each student got to try it, and then vote on if they liked it or not. Yum! Then, we had a party with the other preschool class. We watched the "Elena of Avalor" day of the dead episode, colored skull pictures, and danced to mariachi music. What a fun celebration!
