This weeks theme is "Winter"
For art this week the children marble painted with boxes as they moved their box back and forth to watch the marbles roll and make designs on their paper, Lufa painted on large green poster board paper with red painted to make a X-Mas tree for the front window and today, the children will explore with shaving cream and food coloring by laying their paper on top to make a design. When they are done, they will explore the shaving cream with their hands to explore sensory as well.
For math this week we practiced colors by naming and matching paper colored mittens by asking "what color" and teacher help and snowflake prints with playdough by pressing the star shapes onto the playdough . We also did a science experiment with Ice , salt, water and food coloring. We poured salt on the ice and added color to the ice and slowly poured water over the ice to watch what happens. The children were amazed by staying focused on the experiment and waiting to see it melt and bubble.
Fine motor this week, we had salt trays with hidden pictures underneath and craft sticks to move the salt around and "find the picture". This allows the children to manipulate the craft stick using their fingers/hand grasp and problem-solve by moving the salt around to find the hidden picture.We also explored with match box cars and tubes to slide them in the tube and watch for them to slide out the other end. This activity allows the children to make things happens as they learn to explore with the materials provided.
Today, we will crumple up paper for a snowball toss then add it to the parachute for music and movement and sing 5 Little Snowflakes with props before lunch.
Books we read this week were "The Mitten, Winter Babies, Let It Snow, Five Little Snowflakes and Gingerbread Man"
