Wow- what a beautiful weekend!! I hope you are all enjoying it.
I wanted to tell you that last Friday we had SO MUCH FUN making our own science experiments during small groups! It was amazing – they were so happy and having a blast (no pun intended!) We used baking soda, vinegar, soapy water, water color, shaving cream and lots of glitter! Each child had their own try with beakers, test tubes, eye droppers, etc. They really got into their scientist roles. We had lots of amazing, sparkly explosions!
This week we will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’s birthday!! I think he would be 109 years old! Lots of Dr. Seuss books will be out, and we will read a few in our small groups. This is a great introduction to rhyming! We will also do some really fun Dr. Seuss activities during free choice and in small groups.
Monday, one star group will read Cat in the Hat and then try balancing a cup, a small sandbox rake, “milk,” books, a fish, a toy ship and a little toy man! The other star group will read Ten Apples Up On Top and then try balancing a stack of bean bags and an apple on their heads! Wednesday we will do the same thing, but switch groups so they all have the opportunity to do both activities without rushing.
I’m looking forward to our festive week!
