Willow Room: MWF class

We read "Whoosh went the wind" by Sally Derby

We asked the children "How do you feel when it rains?"

We painted with watercolors in a sponge painting tool on white paper that revealed a surprise.  (We wrote their name in white crayon, and when they painted over it, their name showed up.)

We painted turtle shapes at the easel with rollers that had squares on them.

We practiced our Mother's Day songs.

We did a science project, called make it rain.  You use water and cotton balls as clouds.
