January 29th - February 2nd

"The goal of Early Childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn."
 
-Maria Montessori
 
 
 
 
 
This week we started to discuss patterns.  What they are.  How we make them.  We used a magnets and picture cards to create patterns.  Each child had a turn choosing a card and then duplicating the pattern picked.  It was so much fun we didn't even realize we were learning!
 
 

 


 
We got our hands a little dirty in Science and made Snow Dough!  Snow Dough is made with lotion, corn starch, and glitter.  We mixed equal parts of each ingredient until we got a snow consistency. Everyone got a turn to mix and explore.
 
Measure, Pour, Mix!

 
 
In STEAM, we built bridges for our cars using cups and popsicle sticks.  We had to decide if one stick or two sticks allowed our cars to not fall off and safely cross the bridge.  
 

Braden and CJ decided if they worked together, they could make a longer bridge! 



Cold and flu season is upon us!  Mrs. Festa and I are cleaning the room and materials each and everyday to help prevent the spread of germs.  We are also washing hands and using sanitizer every chance we can.  Please be mindful that your child must be fever, vomit and/or diarrhea free without meds for 24 hours before returning to school.  Please remind your child to cough into their elbow.  This is something we practice almost daily.
