Reading together as a family every night is an important event in a young child’s life. It helps to build listening skills, comprehension, vocabulary, and pure enjoyment for reading. What a wonderful gift that you as a parent can give your child!

For the month of March, we will be learning about the theme of Water. The children will get to identify different sources of water, such as ocean, faucet, etc, The children will get to sort land and sea animals in the Science Center. They will also get to count how many drops of water fit on a penny in the Math Center. At the water table, the children will have an opportunity to figure out what material will fill up a cup the fastest (spoons, droppers, scoops). The children will also get to control the flow of water by using a piping system that they will create with funnels, bottles, and plastic pipes.

Remote Weekly Letter 3.5.21

This week we started our new unit on water. We read the book Water by Frank Asch.
We brainstormed how water is found in our school, in our homes (kitchens, bathrooms), through the weather, and also the wider environment (waterfalls, lakes, rivers, oceans). Children added drawings and written letters/words for our class chart!

We practiced sorting animals that live on land and in the water by adding pictures of animals in our Winter Journals.

During our small group lessons, children used their senses to explore water. We observed how water moves, pours, and splashes. Using different tools (scoops, spoons and droppers) we experimented to see which tool would fill up a cup with water the fastest. They compared both tools by counting how many drops each tool took to complete the task.

Next week we will continue with our water unit by focusing on what happens to water when it changes temperature.

Hybrid Weekly Letter 3.5.21

This week we started our new unit on water. We read the book Water by Frank Asch.
We brainstormed how water is found in our classroom (sink, water tray), in our houses (kitchens, bathrooms), through the weather, and also the wider environment (waterfalls, lakes, rivers, oceans).    

In the Science Center, the children worked on sorting different seashells, as well as land and sea animals.

In the Math Center the children counted how many drops of water can fit on a penny.

Using individual water trays they also used different scoopers and droppers to see which one would fill up a cup with water the fastest. They compared both tools by counting how many drops each tool took to complete the task.

Next week we will continue with our water unit by focusing on what happens to water when it changes temperature.

Remote Weekly Letter 2.26.21

This week we wrapped up our study of Light by discussing how different kinds of light can help us.  We shared the read aloud video How do we use light? by Daniel Nunn and the children considered how lights help us see, give information, provide warmth and help plants grow. 

During our small group meetings, we sorted nocturnal and diurnal animals and learned about the unique adaptations that nocturnal animals have for being active in the dark!

We practiced using our new light vocabulary during an exciting game of Light Lotto, which was also an opportunity to practice patience, rule following, and turn taking!

Families were invited to share their children’s “line art,” created by using strips of paper to create wavy, zig-zag, loopy and bumpy lines. It was exciting to see the shadows created by the different kinds of lines when light shined on the artwork.

Next week we will begin a new unit on Water and begin exploring why water is important and where water comes from.

Hybrid Weekly Letter 2.26

This week we wrapped up our study of Light by discussing how different kinds of light can help us.  We read How do we use light? by Daniel Nunn and the children considered how lights help us see, give information, provide warmth and help plants grow. 

We also discussed how some animals wake up and go out at night (nocturnal) and some sleep at night and go out in the day (diurnal). 

In the Art Center we created “line art” and used our flashlights to see the shadows created.  We used strips of paper to create wavy, zig-zags, and bumpy lines, as well as loops, diagonals, and parallel lines!  

In the Science Center we made predictions on what will happen to seeds we put in the in the light (window) and the dark (box).  We will continue to observe them to find out if our predictions were true. 

Next week we will begin a new unit on Water and begin exploring why water is important and where water comes from.
