Recent News: The Blue Bears enjoyed their camping adventure this week! We had fun playing in a tent and making camp food over the campfire. We also made some pretty cool art inspired by camping. In addition, we practiced sequencing card stories, and writing numbers 6-10. In art with Sudie, we painted like American painter Jackson Pollock. The Blue Bears donned plastic bag smocks, grocery bag shoe covers, and shower caps to splash colors of paint onto canvas. What a fun art day!

Blue Bear Weekly News: Recap and Preview

May 3-7

Recent News: Planes, trains, trucks, and boats all week! The Blue Bears had a lot of fun playing with train tracks and designing road systems in dramatic play. And as we talked about different modes of travel this week, we took some fun imaginary trips around the world. In Australia, we created Australian Aboriginal dot art and ate mangos! Then it was on to Africa where we tried our hand at making Ghanian Kente Cloth. In Japan we learned about cherry blossom trees and snacked on sushi. We ended the week in Sweden, making Dala Horses and sampling Swedish meatballs! Also, on Friday, we took a train ride around Brackenridge Park. What a way to end a week of travel! 

But, our favorite part of the week was celebrating our wonderful Blue Bear moms. The Bears were so excited to welcome mom and share the gifts they lovingly worked on just for her. Happy Mother's Day!
