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!
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?
We mixed red and yellow paint to make orange pumpkins! We had fun making our hands orange too!
We have had a lot of fun creating things out of recyclable materials! Birdhouses, hotels, boats, pools, and robots were just some of the creations!
We have been exploring weather in our Housekeeping Center. Last week, we used weather puppets. This week, we used a pretend camera and microphone to do our own weather report. At the Math Center, we tried leveling the pan balance using Play-Doh and classroom objects. Students worked together to put small amounts of Play-Doh in one side to equal the weight of the object on the other side of the pan balance. At the Building Center, some students had the idea to draw a plan before building a marble run structure. We are always thinking of new ways to explore
We worked together to write 100 CVC words as a class. Students shared their awesome collections of 100! Keep an eye out for our 100 things class book that will come home soon!
