Family Breakfast and Center Time Play

Thank you to all our family and friends for joining us for our annual Family Breakfast and Center Time Play. The children enjoyed all of our visitors for breakfast and especially hanging out to play with us.
Spring is in the air... and then it's not. But we have enjoyed the sunshine and the wind. We all went out and flew kites!

Literacy Fun

We have moved into Spring Time fun and are reading White Rabbits Color Book by Alan Baker, The Little Yellow Chicken by Joy Cowley, What makes a rainbow? by Betty Schwartz, Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert, and 10 Little Caterpillars by Bill Martin Jr.

Science

We have been conducting color investigations and discussing our observations by mixing and blending primary colors with play dough, paint and watercolors. We have learned how to use eye droppers to pick up, move and mix watercolors.

We are exploring bulbs, seeds and seedlings. We took turns using a spade to dig out dirt to plant our classroom Cape Lilly bulb and discussed the 3 items it needs to grow; dirt, water and sunshine. We will be monitoring its growth and making observations as a class. The children will also be growing grass and planting seeds to create their own seedlings as our unit progresses.
