Ms. Gabi's and Ms. Emmalee's class is growing up! The children are starting to get that "kindergarten" look. We are enjoying every minute of spring in the Ocean Room.
Building with blocks is a daily favorite. It teaches cooperation, space planning, and balance!
Circle time is filled with music, calendar skills and opportunities to speak to the whole group.
Math skills are reinforced with lots of counting and role play.
During science centers, we enjoy lots of "hands-on" experiences. Here the kiddos are squeezing, measuring and drinking grapefruit juice!
Our class hermit crab is often sleepy during the afternoons, so we are happy when he stretches his legs!
Pre K students love to create art with a variety of materials. During Easter time, we loved paint-stamping with marshmallow Peeps.
We use cooking activities to learn about letters of the alphabet.
Ms. Emmalee brought her quesadilla maker for Qq week. Yum!
Exploring the classroom is an important way to learn observation and recording skills. This week the children looked for all the yellow objects they could find for Yy week.
Dramatic play is also a very important part of our day. The lemonade stand has been a toy store, an ice cream shop and a bank this week.
We're not just playing around... Yo-yos are a fun way to learn about gravity!
And at the end of all that excitement, what's better than some quiet reading time?
The Ocean Room is swimming with great learners!
