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!
