This week the boys and girls did some pumpkin exploration using their senses! The children were able to touch the pumpkin inside and out, smell it, decided what color it was using their eyes, listened to Ms. Laurel thumping on the pumpkin, but we did not taste the pumpkin!

This week Ms. Taylor made some pumpkin play-doh for the children to enjoy. The boys and girls had the chance to experience things from nature in the discovery tubs! There were sticks, leaves and scented pumpkin play-doh. The children really enjoyed using all their different senses to explore and create!

On Wednesday, our class had a very special lesson with Ms. Susan. She taught us how to make applesauce! The children had a lot of fun peeling, coring, and tasting the apples. We talked about how apples turn brown and how lemon juice can keep them from becoming brown.

There’s a spider on the floor!

Today was all about spiders! Ms. Laurel brought in a daddy long leg spider for all the boys and girls to see during group time. Everyone was fascinated by the spider! We counted the spiders legs and talked about things that would be stuck on a spiders web. We read the story Spider on the floor by Bill Russell. Then the children had a chance to go up to the board and stick a “fly” on our spider web. It was very sticky!

The KPrep class has been learning about the scientific method and doing experiments! After watching a video, we went through the steps of the scientific method as we conducted an experiment together.  Our first experiment is below! We were trying to find out which liquid would clean the dirty pennies best (vinegar was the winner!).
