October 12, 2018 Bi-Weekly
In Dramatic Play we have gone from exploring nature in our cave to discovering space in our rocket ship. The trees are gone and in their place is the night time sky. We are launching into outer space and walking on the moon. What a “blast” we are having! We are discovering why astronauts wear space suits and are experimenting with gravity!
In the Art Room we have painted with different media, brushes on wood and painting with strings, marbles and golf balls. Our surprises for our Dad’s/Special Friend’s visit are almost complete.
We were intrigued by the gutters and balls in the Motor Room as we ventured into physics. We built towers, interlocked the gutters and watched in awe as the balls travelled through the course!
Ms Laura delighted us as she read Good Night Moon. Next week we will continue exploring in space and begin working with construction! Coming up after our Dad’s/Special Friends Day is our Pajama day. See the “Dates to Remember” section for details.
The children really enjoyed our sensory balls. It turns out that you can make them at home with polymer water beads (just search water beads or they are sometimes available at plant nurseries), water, a water bottle and a clear balloon! Let your water beads soak in water for a few hours. Put them in a 16.9 oz water bottle. Cover the top with the balloon and pour them into the balloon. Let the air out, tie it off and VOILA! You have a safe sensory ball for hours of playtime fun!
Dates to Remember:
Monday, October 22- Dad’s/ Special Friend’s Day from 10:30 to 11:30 Thank you for your assistance with our questionnaires. The stories are adorable and we are looking forward to sharing them!
Monday, October 29- Pajama Day1
Have your child wear their pajamas to school and bring their favorite bedtime buddy! If you would like to help out with a special snack that day, please let us know. Keep in mind that other classes have nut allergies, so we avoid them. We have a child that is dairy intolerant so we’d love to have choices!
Brightest Blessings, Pamela and Laura
