Prepositions - Ants and Watermelon

We have been talking about our upcoming picnic to celebrate the end of the school year and while doing so we reviewed prepositions! We talked about all the different ways an ant can move around a piece of delicious watermelon!

We had some fun blowing bubbles on the playground too! We love the warm weather!

It Sure is Hot Out!

It sure is HOT outside! Summer has come early and in preparation for the heatwave we talked about the importance of wearing proper clothing to stay cool. We talked about the differences between shorts and pants, and long sleeves and short sleeves. We decided the best thing to wear in the current heatwave would be shorts and a t-shirt!

6 Sticks

Today we read the book 6 Sticks. Afterwards we got creative with our own 6 sticks! Some of us made letters and shapes, others made animals, such as a giraffe! We love being creative!

Shapes and a Seahorse

Today we worked on our shapes and colors while sticking with our underwater and summer theme of the week! We used tissue paper and shapes to make seahorses! This activity was a lot of fun and allowed us to be very creative! We placed pieces of tissue paper over our shapes (triangle, hexagon, ovals, and circles). We even incorporated the letter J that we worked on yesterday and reviewed all of the "j" words we came up with yesterday. This activity strengthened our fine motor control. creativity, shape recognition, color recognition, and follow direction skills!

Check out our adorable seahorses!
