The littles explored the letter of the week through a still art invitation today. With a vase filled with silk flowers, they closely observed the colors and lines and shapes before taking water colors to the paper.
The process here was amazing! They used new vocabulary to describe the petals as round or long, the stems as thin and straight, the glass as clear, and much more! Their observations directed their color choices and how they used their brush strokes to create what they saw.
I am constantly impressed and in awe of their unlimited creativity and potential
When learning the Letter Ss and exploring an Ocean Theme, why not design your very own “Seascape”?
Incorporating mixed media materials with a study of the natural environment allows littles to express their understanding of the external world as they see, feel, and interpret it. It’s a great reason to pull out the art supplies and let loose!
“S” is for “Scavenger Hunt”! What better way is there to enjoy this stretch of warmer weather than to take our Letter of the Week program outside?! With our Scavenger Hunt List and Crayola in hand, we explored our nearby surroundings “searching” for the items on our list and it was a huge “success”! If you have the chance, take a few moments to learn outdoors-the classroom has no boundaries!
“Q” is quite a tricky letter to learn! Even so, we rose to the challenge and really quizzed ourselves on this quirky letter. We played 21 Questions, pretended we were Queens, had a quarter toss, and cooked Quesadillas! Check out our grilling skills!
“O” is for “Outstanding”! As in, our artwork is “outstanding”! It’s also for yummy snacks like “oranges” and “olives” and pretend play “offices”. Tomorrow we will play a group game of “Operator” and sort pictures of things that are “opposites”!
It’s “Nn” Week!
To help the littles learn about the letter Nn and it’s sound, we painted the starry Night Sky, made Name Necklaces, and enjoyed Navel oranges and Nilla wafers as part of our snacks!
Tomorrow we’ll explore Nocturnal animals by reading some great books about animals at night and taste some Nutella with graham crackers for snack!
Crazy Cuts are part of the letter of the week this week. Paper cuts are given a new meaning as we learn more about our letter, getting our hair cut, and practice our fine motor skills cutting! Our Preschool welcomes C and we found out it is for more than just cookie!
