We continue to learn through lots of fun and laughter in the Forest room.
This week we have working on our "Winter unit".
|Looking for treasures in ice - using warm water and droppers to melt the ice to find the treasures :)|
The kiddos started off the week playing in our "snow" . They had fun using the cars as snow ploughs and the preschoolers loved seeing the tyre marks in the "snow". They also enjoyed covering animals and talking about which animals like the snow and which ones liked the sun :)
We were also busy painting with ice, making fun little snowmen, gluing little Christmas tree ornament snowflakes. Arts and crafts is still a favorite with most of our preschoolers. They love getting creative with all sorts of materials. The messier the better :)
The favourite part of the week had to be when we made it 'snow' in our classroom! We were all wrapped up in scarves and gloves, then after our 'snowstorm' we had a little cup of warm cocoa to warm up (just as we would on a cold winters day). The preschoolers also tried some yummy shaved ice this week. We also went ice skating around the classroom in our socks.
In math the kiddos counted out the number of marshmallows needed for each cup of cocoa to match up with the number written next to each cup.
All in all we had a super fun week.
Finally we have also been practising hard for our Christmas concert which we are all very excited about. I'm sure each and every one of our little preschoolers will perform like little superstars :)
