We had a blast at our field trip to Kidspace Children’s Museum. This was the perfect field trip for our little guys in Room #4. It was a short drive from our preschool and the museum had lots of fun and age appropriate things to explore. Thank you to all our parent volunteer who made this trip an enjoyable and successful experience.
This place was filed with many safe and fun things to see, explore and do, If you have not been there, you might want to check it out, They have the Galvin Physics Forest, Imagination Workshop, Nature Exchange, Roberts Pavilion and the Outdoor play to visit and discover. The kids enjoyed both the in door and outdoors activities.
Thank you again parents/grandparents for volunteering and joining us in this fabulous, out of the routine adventure. It was a blast!
In class we cooked corn bread with our children in class#4. In this fun and interactive activity the children learned skills needed in life such as, social-emotional development; pride and confidence in their skills and abilities, follow directions and using thinking skills to problem solve. Physical development; spreading and mixing, skills that help develop a child’s small muscle control and eye-hand coordination, and even early concepts of math and science. Cognitive development; Cooking inspires children’s curiosity, offering new opportunities to make predictions and observations. Language development; cooking is also a great opportunity for language development, children can match pictures to words and articulate questions inspired by their new experiences. Literacy; following written recipe with images.
Thank you for bringing all the delicious apples, your generous contribution made this apple galore an exciting successful apple-venture filled with many different activities to do with your children. We have done apple tasting, made apple dumplings, and most recently made apple sauce.
On September 27th and 28th, the children participated in apple tasting and charting. On October 3rd and 4th, we made apple dumplings and they were able to follow direction such as spreading the dough, placing the apple in the center, shaking the cinnamon and sugar, wrapping the apple with the dough, and enjoying a delicious dessert after lunch. On October 10th and 11th, we made apple sauce and the children were chopping the apples into small piece with butter knives. We are looking forward to a lot more fun activities this school year.
In January we had lots of fun discussing and exploring the different kinds of weather. We had “WINTER” this year, days that were really cold, days that were rainy and other days that were sunny. We read books about arctic animals, snow and rain. The children played with ice and animals that live in Antarctica, built some snowmen with different size boxes, dressed it up with scarves, hats and with their imagination they requested features to be added such as a face, buttons and arms. We really got to enjoy our outside play making mud piles and making lots of different molded shapes with the wet sand. As we engage in outside play, the children enjoyed a fun and messy experience with cornstarch as they discovered texture, cause and effect, and measuring. With all these experiences the children were exposed to social-emotional, cognitive, math and language skills.
