This little piggie went to market, YC-Teacher Susie

We are starting a unit of fairy tales in our class.  This week we read The Three Little Pigs and some of our parent led activities focused on projects using this book.  The rest of our room has a transportation theme throughout.  Come take a peek!

Our seed table was filled with all sorts of vehicles and helicopters.

The kids had fun playing with bears and boats in our water table.

We had translucent Duplos on our light table.

We had a Three Little Pigs flannel board story that we used during our circle time. Then, we had it on our flannel board for the kids to use in re-telling the story.

Our play-doh table is always full of activity!  You will see some cars and dinosaurs that the kids pulled out to incorporate into their play.

On Tuesday we read The Three Little Pigs and had the kids paint their own muddy pigs.  Then they decorated them with googly eyes and button noses.

Our second parent led activity on Tuesday was a sink/float experiment.  We had preselected items that the kids could use to predict if they would sink or float in a water tub.  Then, the kids got to put their predications to the test.  

On Thursday we made shaving cream hearts.  The kids put liquid watercolor into the shaving cream, gave it a stir and then put a cut out heart on top.  Next, they peeled the heart off the shaving cream and cleaned them off with a squeegee.  Voila, beautiful heart artwork!

Our second parent led activity on Thursday was another science inquiry. We had items out that the kids could predict whether they would be able to blow them away or not. We talked about the big bad wolf and did a lot of huffing and puffing!

Here are some pictures of your kids during free play.

As always, thank you for sharing your children with us!
