e week gave room for some elephant fun. we washed elephants and brushed their teeth, made forests for them, made elephant colored paper all while listening to one elephant went out to play.
(we introduced the concept of a “math sentence” with this color blending activity…seed planting, you know)
nice clean tusks!
watercolor background, black paper dinosaurs, mounted on flat paper.
most children opted for a hill for the dinosaurs to walk on or in front of.
it seems like the dinos are heading off into the sunset…or sunrise.
if you look under our water table you will find a hose. if the teachers only put one bucket of water in the tub table, there is no way you can overflow your bucket when the teachers say you can open the hose!
there was a lot of figuring in how to pour the bucket back in the tub table without letting more water out.
they got it! over and over. and yes, if it seems like there are a lot of boys in the group, there are. all but two of the class in fact.
after reading this book we turned our own black dots into things!
in case any of you were sitting on the edge of your seat waiting for the results of our apples VS balls show and tell:
it ended up being a closer race than we thought!
thank you, mr rob, for saving project time. i can’t remember what the first plan was, but it wasn’t going to work well.
the button spotted cows turned out great.
simple and great.
about the time preschool started, a friend of mine started his photography business. since then he’s come for preschool picture day. he’s funny and kind and competent. by now he’s used to dealing with big groups. when the schedule didn’t make sense for him to drive out for the class photo on friday, i thought it would be no problem for us to take one.
wrong. we got a cute one of just the kids instead. families, check your email for a link to all the pictures.
we had some good laughs, though.
