  • 3 Day 3’s – We continued with our “Art Unit”. The children learned about  Pablo Picasso. We read “ Picasso and the Girl with a Ponytail” by Laurence Anholt. Each child recreated one of his most famous pieces called “Bouquet of Flowers”. We introduced the children to the Passover and Easter holiday. We read “Sammy Spiders First Passover” and let each child taste matzah. Our art project was dipping matzah in paint & making prints on paper. The children enjoyed “Max’s Chocolate Chicken” by Rosemary Wells. They had fun making a cute Easter bunny.

Every day we have been observing our planted beans which have begun to sprout. We made thumb print crocus on our Spring bulletin board and sang our crocus song! All the children are loving our new moon sand in the exploration table. Don’t forget next week is “W” week.
  • Extended Day 4′sWow! This week was full of science and fun! We discovered all 5 senses, sight, hearing, touch, smell, and taste, through different experiments!
    • Sight- We used different color glasses to look and find different objects in the room!  We always played “I Spy” in small groups!!
    • Hearing- We played an interactive game between two teams! We played different sounds for the teams to guess what the sounds was! It ended up as a tie!!
    • Touch- We had a blind touch test experiment! Blind folded, the students had to touch different objects and describe what they were feeling! They then had to do guess what the object was!  This was so much fun!!
    • Smell- With their eyes shut, the students had to smell different spices to see which scent they liked the most and which they liked the least!  Ask the students how they felt about nutmeg!! Seemed to be the number one least liked!
    • Taste- We tasted bananas, raisins, lemons, and pretzels!  Ask your child how their taste experiment went!

    Next week we will be learning about Easter and Passover!  U for Unleavened Bread!  Have a good weekend!
