The week has been wonderful for exploring God’s creation. Our class learned about clouds at our rain making station. The students went right to work using tongs or their hands to pick up cotton ball clouds and soaking them into our blue rain water.
The children were invited to use the cotton ball clouds to absorb the blue rain water. They squeezed the rain out of the clouds and back into the tub.
Of course, making clouds was great fun!
The discussions were interesting as they were busy learning and sharing the information they knew about clouds.
We walked outside with our “homemade” binoculars” and watched the rain clouds rolling in. The children made good observations based on what they had learned the day before.
Playing outside remains our favorite activity. With a touch of fall in the air we could not resist the chance to play in the leaves.
The children became acquainted with Pete the Cat this week. You might have heard them singing his songs, I’m rocking in my school shoes or I like my white shoes. Pete provided many fun opportunities to learn!
We completed our activities with a class graph that helped us to discover our favorite Pete the Cat book. The children liked Pete the Cat, Rocking in my School Shoes.
We practiced building and writing the Letter E. We read Elmer the Elephant. The children liked this book about a patchwork elephant who had to learn how to be content with who he was. We talked about how we are all different and how important it is to be happy with the way God made us.
The children were able to mix it up with color this week. We did science experiements and many activities that enabled them to take two colors and make a new color.
We ended our week with chapel, art, P.E. and a special Pete the Cat snack. It was a good week in PreK.
