Library Visit

We enjoyed our visit to the Riverside Library where we learned all about this valuable resource. 

Steel Sponge Painting

In one of our stories we discussed steel wool. The children thought it was so funny to think of wool made of steel. 

Today we encouraged the children to explore painting with steel sponges. The result was amazing!

The children used great action words to describe their painting - dabbing, streaking, swiping, and stroking.

Sidewalk Chalk

We learned a wet pavement makes the sidewalk chalk vibrant!

Sensory Tables

We turned our water table into the ocean...

and the tactile table into a farm!

Flower Shop!

We are turning our drama center into a flower shop and would appreciate any donations of materials to support our play including plastic containers and vases, fake flowers, aprons, order pads, ribbon and fabric, and anything else you think might interest our children. Thank you for your support.

Outdoor Sidewalk Paint

We made sidewalk paint out of cornstarch, water, and food colouring today. It was so much fun and the children were interested in how the texture of the paint became chalky when it dried.

Puzzle Experts

"It was so easy to build. We just matched it like a matching game."

A puzzle record!  These boys created the 60 piece puzzle in under five minutes by working together!

Graphic Organizers

We've been exploring different graphic organizers during our whole group time to help us organize information. Today we used an idea cloud to show what we know about seeds. Why don't you ask your child about this and perhaps use an idea cloud together in order to practice some writing at home?

Indoor Chalk Drawing

Rain?  No problem!  We drew with sidewalk chalk on a large piece of butcher paper in our room.
