Yesterday we explored book making. The children used various materials in creating their own story. We also worked on some sensory activity. We made slime!
On Monday, we explored with craft sticks, laundry pins and rubber bands. The children made different items using craft sticks and laundry pins. They also explored their numbers using different materials to the different number sticks.
Today, the children of room 2 at the Gilliate building were given a brief introduction to the works of Pablo Picasso. They were then invited to use various mediums to create Picasso inspired works of their own! Can you tell which one is a robot? How about the octopus? That’s the beauty of Picasso. He had the uncanny ability to create surreal, but oft recognizable representations while still leaving observers with a sense of wonder. It is not uncommon for our children to work and create in the exact same way… and that is what you see here!
Today we worked on making different line patterns using marble tracks and marbles.
Today we worked together on completing a puzzle . They worked on problem solving strategies with peers.
Today we went to visit the library. We found books about Fire Trucks.
The children of room 2 at the Gilliate building have taken an interest in firetrucks. So, we went to the fire station! The children explored the perimeter of the building, discussed where the trucks might be, and even found one at the back of the building!
Arriving at the fire station…
De’Asia: We at the firetruck. It in the garage!
Ashlynn: You ring the bell and they come out.
Good theory… let’s try!
Nobody came out. So, who works here?
Ashlynn: The people.
Emoni: I saw the light in there ‘cuz it’s open.
Emoni: It’s a firetruck! *points to police car*
Finding the firetruck…
How did you know?!
Journei: ‘Cuz it’s red!
Emoni: There’s water on there!
De’Asia: So they can clean your car off!
Ashlynn: No, for fire.
De’Asia: I see wheels.
Ashlynn: A ladder!
For the house!
Coryon: For climbing!
Dylan: *makes siren noise*
De’Asia: That on top!
Ashlynn: Yeah, it’s a light!
Since Fall Break, we have done some fun color recognition, book making and made some Halloween slime.
We practiced writing letters in salt & got to do a fun project with Mr. Bryan in the art studio.
Today we explored working on putting puzzles together. Many friends worked together to complete the puzzles. Another activity was dancing with balloons. They really enjoyed these activities.
