Spring Playscape

Our light table was busy with signs of spring today!  Flowers and butterflies were everywhere!



It was fun to engage in a bit of imaginative play at this playscape. Others sorted the materials by size and colour. 

Making Smoothies!

What a fun treat!

What is this?

We placed an interesting artifact from our yard on the science table today and invited the children to explore it and make guesses as to what they thought it might be. 



The children used magnifying glasses to get a closer look. 


They then recorded their ideas on a communal piece of paper.

Bubble Prints

Bubble prints are so much fun and so easy to do!

Soap, water, and paint will mix and bubble up when one blows into it with a straw. 





Then you press a paper quickly on top. 


Beautiful!


Worms !

Rainy weather is always perfect for looking for creepy crawly things in our yard. On Friday we went on a worm hunt to find some for exploration on our light table. 


We found one large worm and one small worm.  The children had so many ideas for who these worms might be. They finally agreed that they thought the large worm was the mom and the small worm her baby. 




Placing the worms in a clear container on the light table illuminated them and allowed us to see inside their bodies. The children noticed what appeared to be a filled area and had many guesses for what might be inside the worm's stomach including dirt!

Look Who Came to School Today!




The children were so interested to observe the small snail today. It was very active eating the leaves and cucumbers we gave it and this prompted a lot of conversation. 

We created a display with reading and writing materials in order to encourage research regarding our visitor.
