Outside: Today we harvested Swiss Chard, a tomato, and two cucumbers despite the heat and dry soil! We enjoyed side walk chalk, painting the wood and brick fences with water, and playing in water boxes with eye droppers and scoops. We looked at our giant sunflowers and their flowers that should open soon. The sunflowers are taller than our teachers!
Cooking: Jaden helped Janie make bean and cheese burritos. Several friends worked together to set the table for breakfast and lunch.
Community Time: We reviewed colors in Spanish and English, reviewed a diagram of a butterfly lifecycle, looked at pictures of caterpillars in Ranger Rick magazine and learned how caterpillars have evolved to disguise and protect themselves from birds, learned the names of the animals in Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See?, and read Miss Spider’s Busy Day. We learned a new song, “I’m a Texas Star”.
Fine Motor:drawing with beeswax crayons, practiced writing either the first letter of our name or our entire name (depending on age), Legos, beeswax modeling
Pretend Play: playing with stables and horse figurines, ironing silks, cooking in the pretend kitchen
Snack: gelatin with fresh fruit, animal crackers, water
This is Addie–Olivia got to ride her yesterday!
Notes: Olivia and a neighbor are attending horse camp this week at Sonshine Stables. It has been wonderful, and “horse” play and figures are really popular in the play here at our preschool as a result. Don’t forget to bring your bike or scooter to school on Friday!
