Baking Cookies

It was baking day in our room today! The children were so eager to help out.

Greasing the pan...

We used a nut-free, egg-free, gluten-free mix to accommodate all our children. 

They were delicious!

Daffodil Still Life Painting

We placed a pot of daffodils at our science centre today and encouraged the children to paint still life paintings that represented what they observed.

Last week we explored Gak and today we experimented with goop (cornstarch and water). Is it a solid?  A liquid?  Whatever it is it sure is fun!

Tally Game

We played a dice game. The children rolled the die, saw what number was rolled, and recorded the result on a tally!

The children could also play this game with small dice at our math table.

Felt Pictures

The children enjoyed creating felt pictures at the math table today. 

A Castle for Dinosaurs

The girls created an interesting dinosaur playscape today while at the sand centre. They describe their play below. 

"This is the egg and a baby is going to hatch out of it."

"This is their bed with an egg that's going to hatch. There's the mom."

"This is the baby's sand breakfast."

"This is a castle for dinosaurs because it's cold outside."

"There is a fireplace and a small bed where the baby can sleep. And the momma's in the nest waiting for the egg to hatch. "

We read a book called "Green" that describes the various shades of green that exist in the world. It's a beautiful book with vivid illustrations. 

At the art centre we set up a painting provocation with a choice of paints and palettes. The children were invited to create their own shades of green by mixing different colours on their palettes. 

Such beautiful colours! It was interesting to hear the words the children used to describe the different shades of green they were creating. 

Writing and Drawing

Our writing centre was very busy today with lots of children spending their time drawing and writing.
