July 6 - July 10
Please write child’s name on water bottles. Thank you!
This week we traveled all around the world! Monday we made our passports and painted the earth! Tuesday we set off on our adventure around the world! Our first stop was Asia! We talked about Asian culture, made chinese fans, and even had a scarf ceremony! The kids were a little disappointed when they figured out we weren't really going to Asia, but once we boarded our airplane, they began using their imaginations. Ms Erin has visited Asia, so she brought in items for the kids to look at, and she also brought pictures. The kids loved looking at the pictures and making their own observations. We also visited South America. We talked about the rainforest and used bubble wrap to paint snakes. We also made our own rainstick! Friday we visited Egypt and Africa! We made cup pyramids, had a drum lesson, and made some mummy bananas! This was a very fun week! The kids all loved traveling around the world and were very excited every morning to hear where we would be going!
Next week will be Safari week! We will make elephant toothpaste, make animal silhouettes, make our own safari hat and animal mask, and have a special jungle themed snack! We will discuss different animals we may find in the jungle, animal habitats, and plants!
July 27th we will be tie dying shirts in our room! We will send home a note regarding this next week. We will need a white shirt by July 24th!
Please have your child practice opening lunch items such as water bottles, yogurts, pudding cups, chip bags, and apple sauce pouches. This is great fine motor skill practice and also helps your child become more independent!
