Ocean Celebration!

Today we celebrated wonderful behavior with a celebration! We have been noticing when the class makes helpful choices and keeping track of those choices with a ten frame and stickers. Our goal was to earn 10 stickers to fill each box on the 10 frame. We have had a lot of great math talks when counting how many stickers we have and how many we still need to get to 10. 

Today we enjoyed a story called the Rainbow Fish and used paper plates, paint, jewels, and googly eyes to make our own colorful fish.

We sang songs like Baby Shark and Down by the Bay.

We did a science experiment and mixed our own bubble solution with soap and water. We tested it outside and had tons of fun playing.

We also enjoyed popsicles! Yum!

All in all it was a fun day! I love to use celebrations as an excuse to learn about something we don’t usually have time for. I like to incorporate the arts or science and give the kids a different sort of day. It sends the kids a great message to celebrate learning with more learning!

Beautiful Oops

Today we enjoyed the book Beautiful Oops. We learned a stain or a drip or a rip when we are making something is a chance to be creative and be a problem solver. If we make an “Oops” we can turn it into a beautiful oops. Then we made paintings on mini canvases. These canvases will hang in each child’s cubby. 

Chalk Fun

We enjoyed the cool morning with a little extra time outside drawing and writing with sidewalk chalk! The kids wrote and drew pictures. This is great for fine and gross motor development and it is fun! It was fun for me to see what they drew and wrote.

When life gives you lemons…

Make lemonade… or in our case paper airplanes! We had a wonderful rained out field trip day at school! 

We made and flew paper airplanes!

We had a picnic in the classroom and ice cream from Buck’s!

Then we had free art time with all kinds of supplies! The kids got to make whatever they wanted!

We had so much fun! The rainy day did not get us down!
