This week the children helped read the wordless book Float by Daniel Miyares   and then visited the writing center to create their own books.

At the water tray we also explored many different objects which can either “float on top” of the water or “sink to the bottom” and discussed why we think this happens. Thank you for bringing in objects from home for us to experiment with. The children had a lot of fun!

The children got to draw outlines of pictures with crayons and then colored them in using water colors. We discussed how the paint does not work unless water is added to it.

Next week we will be discussing how water is important for all living things and how it helps us.

This week we read the book Water Dance by Thomas Locker. We learned that water can come from many different places, like oceans, streams, and rivers.

In the science center, the children enjoyed experimenting with the boats that they made at home. Some children also made boats in the art center and tested them out in the science center.

We have changed our dramatic play center into a weather station. The children have made pictures of weather to put on our map of the United States.

Next week we will be exploring what happens to water when it changes temperature. They will be experimenting with the 3 states of matter-solid, liquid, and gas.

This week we wrapped up our study of “Light” by discussing how different kinds of light can help us.  We read All About Light by Lisa Trumbauer and the children considered how lights help us see, give information, provide warmth or help plants grow. 

In the Art Center we enjoyed practicing fine motor skills by painting with Q-tips and glow-in-the-dark paint.

We also enjoyed playing with glow sticks in the sand table.

On our return from break we will be introducing a new unit on “Water” with the read aloud Water Dance and begin exploring why water is important and where water comes from.

Last week we read the book The Starry Night by Neil Waldman. The children had an opportunity to create their own version of “The Starry Night” using paint and Q-tips in the art center.

We also had fun creating pipe cleaner art and creating shadows with our art and flashlights.

The children have really been enjoying taking their flashlights out during center time and exploring various centers such as the blocks center.

This week, we will be focusing on how light helps us. We will talk about different types of light and whether they are bright or dim light. Children will also discuss the different types of light that they use daily.
