This week we were moving our bodies during group time! Ms. Laurel read a story about circles, then the boys and girls were asked to stand on the circle on the floor. The children held hands and sang Ring A Round The Rosie while walking in a circle. It was so much fun!

The toddlers were giving their little fingers a workout with this activity! The boys and girls were given a piece of white chalk to draw lines up and down, circles or scribbles on a black piece of paper. This activity really had their fine motor skills and creativity working!

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.
