Our transition class and Mrs. Celeste's class just finished up a month long dinosaur adventure. It was so much fun to be able to incorporate dinosaurs into all areas of learning. In the center room, we were able to add dinosaur figurines into the sensory table and block table. The kids imaginations went wild!
We found a few different ways for the kids to excavate mini dinosaurs. We made eggs out of ice and baking soda. The kids were able to use salt water, tools, and vinegar to free the dinosaurs.
During our daily circle time, it was fun to teach the kiddos new dinosaur songs, read books about dinosaurs, and play games. Our transition class loved being able to see how many popsicle sticks and shoes would fit in a large dinosaur footprint. Celeste's class had fun wearing their dinosaur hats during their circle time.
The art center is the perfect place for the kids to be creative. They were able to make dinosaur skin paintings using bubble wrap and their favorite paint colors. They also used various cut out shapes to create their own origianl dinosaur.
We ended our adventure with a trip to the Museum of Osteology. The kids participated in an animal movement class and were able to explore the whole museum and touch several types of animal bones.
Mrs. Christy's class started off the school year with a building project. We had fun building with many different materials including cups, cardboard pieces, scented play dough, and popsicle sticks. Who says you can only build with blocks! Although, we did enjoy building with wood blocks and legos too.
We set up a dramatic play area for the kids to pretend to be construction workers and used hammers to pound golf tees to work our fine motor skills.
Mrs. Amy's Friday class kicked off the Fall season with a science experiment. We were mesmerized by adding vinegar and baking soda to hollowed out apples. It makes it even more fun to add food coloring!
Fall is now in full swing and we have been having so much fun with our sensory table. We have got to experience pumpkin pie play dough, glow in the dark slime, and colored pasta. We have been practicing counting through play and love being an active part of story time.
All I Ever Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (Pre-K) ~by Robert Fulgham~
Most of what I really need to know about how to live, and what to do, and how to be, I learned in Kindergarten (Pre-K) . Wisdom was not at the top of the graduate school mountain, but there in the sandbox at nursery These are the things I learned: Share
everything. Play fair. Don't hit people. Put things back where you found
them. Clean up your own mess. Don't take things that aren't yours. Say you're
sorry when you hurt somebody. Wash your hands before you eat. Flush. Warm
cookies and cold milk are good for you. Live a balanced life. Learn some and
think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work some every
Take a nap every afternoon. When you go out into the world, watch
for traffic, hold hands, and stick together. Be aware of wonder. Remember the
little seed in the plastic cup. The roots go down and the plant goes up and
nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
hamsters and white mice and even the little seed in the plastic cup ~ they all
die. So do we.
And then remember the book about Dick and Jane and the first word you learned,
the biggest word of all: LOOK. Everything you need to know is in there
somewhere. The Golden Rule and love and basic sanitation, ecology and politics
and sane living.
Think of what a better world it
would be if we all ~the whole world had cookies and milk about 3 o'clock every
afternoon and then lay down with our blankets for a nap. Or if we had a basic
policy in our nation and other nations to always put things back where we found
them and clean up our own messes. And it is still true, no matter how old you
are, when you go out into the world, it is best to hold hands and stick together
