Pk 3.1 Weekly Newsletter
October 9th, 2015- Week 8
Hello Pk3.1 Parents,
We completed our 3rd week of our ball unit! This week your children talked about their favorite sports that balls involved. We talked about some of the different actions that we use while playing sports (dribble, pass, and kick). We experimented what happens to balls when they are inside water and watched how they rolled and bounced. We made predictions on if they would float or sink when we put them in a tub of water. We talked about what was inside a ball the ball that makes it float or sink. On Tuesday Vega's grandparents from Denmark, came in to do a project with the kids. They made pictures out of different shapes (rectangle, triangle and circle) that created a house and sun. To top off the special visit they each got to put endless amounts of stickers on their picture and received a small candy! The book we read this week was “The Three Little Pigs”. The kids practiced “huffing" and “puffing” and blowing small puff balls in a maze, using a straw! In the BLOCK CENTER we provided straw, sticks and blocks to build the 3 little pigs houses. After we had the big bad wolf come and try to blow them down! Ms. Giselle changed the “ice-cream shop” to a “ball store” in DRAMATIC CENTER. Most of the kids were still enjoying acting out the “The Three Billy Goats Gruff” in the LIBRARY CENTER that we decided to continue it for another week. In the ART CENTER we did a fun project rolling marbles around on paper with paint. Our special activity on Friday was making popcorn balls out of marshmallows, butter and popcorn. Unfortunately the recipe didn’t work out as well as we’d hoped, the popcorn was too sticky to form a ball. The class did get to help mix and taste the yummy creation. I hope your children enjoyed this week, please share the photos below!
Have a wonderful weekend, I'll see you all next week for Parent Teacher Conferences!
