LET IT SNOW
What do you do when you hope for snow, and it doesn't come? You make your own of course! That's exactly what our class did with "Insta Snow." We discussed the importance of following the directions exactly, and what might happen if we didn't. The children took turns mixing 1 scoop of powder with 2 ounces of water. They were amazed as the powder changed into snow before their very eyes! The boys and girls have had a blast pouring, sifting, and measuring the "Insta Snow" in our class sensory bin.
We've begun a new study on exercise. We discovered that exercise helps to keep our bodies healthy and our bones strong. Exercise even helps your brain. When you exercise, you are able to be a better thinker! The Creative Play Center is now our PreK Gym. A BIG thank you to everyone for sending exercise items for the children to use. Our gym is growing to the point where we may need to issue memberships!
We love puzzles! When children work on puzzles you can expect 3 basic skills to be built. First, Physical Skills, the ability to hold puzzle pieces and turn them until they fit. Second, Cognitive Skills, learning how to solve the problems of a puzzle. Finally, a child learns Emotional Skills, they learn patience and are rewarded when they complete the puzzle.
February proves to be a fun and busy month with Valentine's Day, Grandparent's Day, and a special visit from the Tooth Fairy. Check back with us in February for more PreK adventures!
