We painted jelly bean shapes at the easel with watercolors.

We did "Lettercise", "Clap if you want to" and "Jump up, turn around" for music time.

We introduced the letter J and J items today.

We did a science experiment to see what would float and what would sink.

Maple Room: Morning class

We are doing a whole series on the 3 little pigs and today we read the "Three little pigs" as retold and illustrated by Yuri Salzman

We made our house of bricks today.  We sponge painted on a tri fold display board to make our house of bricks.

We had house shapes at the easel with red squares of paper to look like bricks.

Stay & Play:

We read "Franklin's School Day" by Paulette Bourgeois

We painted using powdered paint and water.  We dipped the brush in water, then in powdered paint and then onto our paper.  The colors are vibrant, and we have to remember to do it int he right order. We used our special home made table top easels.

We did Cool bear hunt, and a color snowman rhyme for music time.
