I am a Reggio Emilia inspired Full Day Kindergarten teacher and mother to three young children. This blog is meant as a communication tool for the families of our children and as a learning tool for the many educators who follow us. Please feel free to comment on posts and participate in our collective understanding of emergent curriculum.
Our messy recipe for the month of November was Goop (2 parts cornstarch to 1 part water with a few drops of food colouring). Miss Halupka made it with the children today. Goop is interesting because when you touch it, it feels hard, but when you try and pick it up it slips through your fingers. It's an great way to get the children thinking about properties of matter and the various states of materials. Needless to say, it was a hit!
