Weekly News: Recap and Preview

May 14, 2021

Class: 3 PM – Little Lambs

Recent News:

· BIBLE STUDIES – We read Jonah from the Hands-On Bible Series and talked about how God always knows where we are because He is always with us. We also discussed the importance of following God’s and our parents’ directions right away. Then we sang “My God is So Big, So Strong, and So Mighty.”

· BOOKS – We read No Ordinary Fish by Anne Lawrence to hear some fascinating facts about sharks and Mister Seahorse by Eric Carle to find out about the different kids of helpful dads that live in the salty ocean.

· ART – We painted on bubble wrap then transferred the designs onto paper, played with shaving cream, and finger painted on easels.

· SCIENCE – We made predictions, tested, and sorted different items into sink and float categories. Then we learned how sharks and fish are buoyant and why they do not just stay on the bottom of the ocean. Fish have swim bladders that have gas inside and sharks have very oily livers to help them float. We tested this by putting a water bottle with no air bubbles in a tub of water and it sank. Then we put a bottle of water with an air bubble in it and a bottle filled with vegetable oil and no air bubble and saw how they floated in the tub.

· ACTIVITIES – We made patterns with colored sharks and matched letters in the A B Seas magnetic fishing game.

Weekly News: Recap and Preview

May 7, 2021

Class: 3 PM – Little Lambs

Recent News:

· BIBLE STUDIES – We learned about Noah and the ark by reading Look for the Rainbow by Alan and Linda Parry. In the story Noah listened to what God said and obeyed his instructions. We talked about how it is important for us to do the same, both with God and with our parents. We then sorted toy animals into ones that would need a ride in the ark and ones that could just swim in the water to tie in with our study of the ocean.

· BOOKS – We read Now I Know What’s Under the Ocean by Janet Palazzo-Craig as we continued our discussion of what kinds of creatures live in the ocean.

· MUSIC – We danced to “The Pirate Song” by Tom Hunter and practiced our songs for Mom’s Day.

· ART – We drew with crayons on paper then did a blue and green watercolor wash over the top to make it look like it was in the ocean. We also played with play dough.

· ACTIVITIES – We talked about how stories have a beginning, middle, and end. Then we each put together three piece sequencing cards and puzzles to figure out the beginning, middle, and end of those stories.

· MOM’S DAY – Thank you so much to all of the moms who helped make this day special for our Little Lambs! The children have been looking forward to singing, dancing, reading, and playing outside with their mommies.
