We have been very busy over the past couple of weeks. The children are both learning and acting out nursery rhymes. Below are pictures of them acting out Humpty Dumpty. They have also done a few science experiments such as color mixing with playdoh and making raisins dance…pop vs water. Lastly, the built a classroom mailbox using an old cardboard box and decorated it using materials from around the room.
Wishing everyone a safe and fun-filled spring break with family and friends. See you back on April 8th.

As a follow up to the Michigan Science Center field trip, we conducted our own experiment this week. After reading the book “The Cloud” by Eric Carle, the children experimented with their “cloud” and tried to make it rain using eye droppers and colored water. This also turned into a color mixing activity.
What a great experience!!! The children were able to make observations, predict and explore all while having fun. They saw a show about electricity and some were even volunteers during the show! I think their favorite part was the multiple elevator rides! Thanks for trusting me with your child! They really did have a blast!
I hope everyone had a nice a relaxing break with their families! I know I did! However, I am glad to be back. This past week we worked on one to one correspondence using dice, buttons and tweezers. The children used the tweezers (fine motor) to pick up the buttons and place them on the dice (one to one) and counted how many they had in total. Others used playdoh and toothpicks to practice counting and number sense. We also worked on building letters and shapes. The children used straight and curved line to build letters and make shapes on the carpet! I did add a few photos of children who were writing on their own during work time! Love it!!!
