The boys and girls were singing twinkle twinkle little star all day today! We counted the points on a star, found different color stars on the floor and of course sang some star songs!

Today the boys and girls had a chance to get a little messy! Our discovery tubs were filled with shaving cream,red paint, peppermint and candy canes. The children were able to swirl and mix the red paint to make their own candy cane mix! It sure did make the room smell good!

Today was all about turkeys! The children created thanksgiving turkeys during art using their handprints and some pre-cut shapes. In our discovery tubs the boys and girls were able to create turkeys using play-doh,feathers and a little imagination. Happy Thanksgiving!

Learning About Cows and What We Can Make With Their Milk

November 17, 2014 Preschool Prep No Comments
by Ms. Caroline

This past week we talked about cows and how they make milk for us to drink and use to make other foods.

Ms. Susan planned a special small group where the children got to help make whipped cream and butter.

We had to shake, shake, SHAKE the containers of cream to turn it into butter:




Then the children got to help make whipped cream!



In another small group, we practice “milking a cow” by squeezing the water out of a glove and into a pail.





We had a very special snack: Our very own homemade butter on bagels and our whipped cream on crackers!

Since it was so cold last week, we had a great opportunity to go into the preschool room and use the smart board! The boys and girls had so much fun doing music and movement in the “big kid room”. All the children did a great job listening and following directions! We can’t wait to use the smart board again!
