Our seed table was filled with vases, sunflowers and dragons/knights. We read a book about a little knight who used a sunflower sword to win the heart and friendship of a dragon. It was fun to see the kids use their imagination and creating their own stories in this area.
Bears and boats took over in our water tub. Lots of pouring and emptying happened this week and the kids loved it!
We had stackable pyramid shapes called "widgets" on our light table.
During free play the kids are maximizing all areas of our room. We are seeing lots of painting and artwork being created, great imaginative play and the kids are loving our class pets.
One of our parent led activities on Monday was playing a sunflower counting game. Each child got to roll the die and identify the number they rolled. Then they counted out the corresponding number of sunflower seeds to put on their flower.
Our second activity on Wednesday was a game using our classroom blocks. The kids used a block chart to spin for a specific shape block. Then they used those shapes to build a structure. When they were done building they were taught how to correctly put the blocks away.
On Friday the kids added watercolor to their sunflower drawing. They really look great and we will have them on display next week.
As always, thank you for sharing your children with us!
