We celebrated The Big Crunch today by all eating some apple together at the same time to celebrate healthy eating and eating locally grown food. Many schools participate in this simultaneously across our school board!

Weaving is a great way to create beautiful art and provide opportunities for children to strengthen fine motor control and hand-eye coordination. We taped chicken wire to old picture frames and provided children with scissors.

We love using our light table! It is a great tool for exploring art and science materials and concepts. Today we did an old favourite - mixing the primary colours of water using pipettes. I used a clear plastic tray and filled each section with water. Using food colouring I made one yellow, red, and blue section.
The children were encouraged to mix and explore colour making by combining drops of different colours.
Not only is it amazing to see what colours emerge, this is a great activity to strengthen fine motor control and hand-eye coordination.
