The shorter week brought plenty of action, especially building as our imaginations focused on the materials we use to build our structures. Starting with the classic Three Little Pigs story, we explored ways to build with straws, lincoln logs and legos. We also tried sugar cubes for an igloo, it was hard. Chapel switched up and talked about Jesus' parable of salt and light and how just a little makes a big difference, just like us. We celebrated Pp with pretzels and popcorn at snack, we designed with pipe cleaners, we popped up and down like popcorn and drew a person after we read the silly story More Parts.
We really focused on love this week, making valentines for our Pre-K bulletin board as well as our family and friends. We showed love and munched donuts with Dad and enjoyed that special time!, We decorated bags to collect our valentines and just loved mailing them to each other as we heard 'Twas the Night Before Valentines Day . The Letter Oo had us add onto our imagination as we focused on the tools we use to create things like ovals. We used tools like pencils, crayons, scissors, glue and paint and the octopus song was fun to sing. Hearing the story of Harold and the Purple Crayon inspired us to do some purple drawings too. Chapel highlighted how Jesus turned water to wine at a wedding in Cana, see our 3-D art to prove it.
Letter Nn was nifty was we hammered real nails, see pics. We heard an imaginative story Not A Box to open up our Imagine It unit, you should hear what we turned a real cardboard box into during choice. We also made necklace and made up stories of what we would catch in a net. Chapel brought the first miracle story of Jesus healing two blind me. We tried to feel that by playing with the feely box using only our sense of touch not eyes. We also did a lot of counting and wrote numbers as much as we could take. Gym brought a great obstacle course and we finished our final animal center at science lab
