Our little scientists were so busy experimenting, making predictions, observations and comparisons this week! It was so much fun to watch them participate in the scientific process! I hope they came home and impressed you with some of their new vocabulary and knowledge!
It was so hard to decide which photos to publish this week so I'm including a few more than usual. Hope you enjoy seeing your little one in action. Wind, Wind Races, Kite Flying, Snow, Ice, Melting, Snowflakes, Lions, Lamps, Legos, Marshmallow Snowflake Engineering, Shaving Cream "Snow", Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and Peace Signs were just a few of our highlights! What a busy and fun-filled week!
This week we will be reviewing all the letters we have learned so far as well as finishing up letter Ll. We will be working on counting objects through 5 as well as writing number 5 (it's a tricky one for little hands!) We will be continuing our study of weather with a focus on clouds as well as continuing to learn our names in print as well as recognizing those of our classmates. And yes, the SCISSORS are coming out this week!!
