Friday, Friday , Friday!
Hopefully everyone survived our rainy, rainy week and are looking forwards to some up coming sunshine!
Our week in the unicorn room was eventful and full of pumpkins! We had our field trip which was quite wet but still a lot of fun. Lots of songs, animals and of course pumpkins! We spent the week learning about the growth cycle of a pumpkin, brought a farmers market into the classroom and some cool art for the Diwali celebration that happened this past Thursday. Our classes have been working on getting undress and dress by themselves, which has been a huge success. Our 3 year old class has accomplished so much in such a short period of time. We are very proud of them ! Of course our 4 year old class is still showing their capabilities and of course we see how their independence continues to grow! If you have not seen it yet, ask them they can show you ! It is always a great idea to have the skills being used before/ after preschool as well!
We did some fun science this week, learning about sink and floating. They were able to experience it themselves by dropping in materials and guessing whether it would sink and float and dissecting pumpkins! FUN!
We are continuing our ocean project! This week was focused on sharks ( as previously stated). The children loved to learn about the Whale sharks! We have learned some new songs, and our two favourites Baby Shark and Slippery Fish! We have done some very cool art and boy oh boy did we love the bingo dabbers! We went on a neighbourhood walk with the 4's and that was a lot of fun! We practised our listening skills, and was able to practise our knowledge on street safety ! We are getting ready for some Halloween Fun!
Some notes :
