What a fun day doing Valentine activities and playing with our fifth grade buddies! We also had a Valentine’s Flower Shop in our Housekeeping Center this week, so we got to practice buying and selling flowers!
We enjoyed working with the number 100 in many ways on the 100th day of school! We did 100 board puzzles. We counted by 10s to 100 using fruit pouch tops. We painted 100 gumballs. We put 100 dinosaurs and unicorns on a 100 board. We worked together to write 100 words. We brought in collections of 100 things!
Jack from The Magic Tree House series. Hedgie from The Mitten. Fancy Nancy. Dragons Love Tacos. Blackbeard the pirate. The Cat in the Hat. Super Penguin!
We have been working on showing numbers in different ways. We used mini erasers to make different combinations of the same number. This is an important skill that gets us ready for addition!
At the Art Center this week, we experimented with mixing colors. We used red, yellow, and blue food coloring. We transferred drops of colored water from one bowl to another to see what would happen. It was also a fun way to get some fine motor practice in while squeezing the pipettes! Everyone is excited to try mixing all of the colors together next time. What will it make?
Mrs. Curcuru’s third graders invited us to the cafeteria to share what they’ve been working on in reading. The third graders each read a book to a kindergarten student, and the next day met with us again to retell the story using puppets they had made.
