Ready for Spring

The children in room 1 are ready for spring! We have been enjoying the warmer weather and getting out doors and exploring the new growing flowers that are coming up. We are seeing new purple and yellow flowers growing. We have also been doing research on the names of the flowers by reading books and going to YouTube to see how flowers grow and what they need to grow. Water, Dirt and Sun.

The Puzzle Makers: Trial, Error and Making Connections to Previous Understandings!

The children of Room 1 have been very interested in all different types of puzzles. Today, we used granite tiles to see if we could make one of our own! First, the children simply took a plain tile and hammered it until it broke. Once it had cracked and we had lots of pieces, we took it to see if we could put it back together. The children quickly discovered that getting it back to its original state was almost impossible! Because of this, we brought out some of the puzzles that they already had in the classroom and discussed the characteristics. It didn’t take long for the children to discover that the pictures and particular lines of the puzzles where what we used to understand how to correctly reassemble them. With this, the children took a blank, unbroken tile and added their own artwork to it. Like the first, this tile was broken into pieces and explored by the children. This time, the children had lots of success putting their puzzle together!
