If you've never tried squeegee painting, we highly recommend it ;) The kids stood at the easel and squirted lines of paint on the paper. Then, they used a squeegee to pull the paint side to side or up and down. The kids really enjoyed the movement and the results are beautiful.
They continued this project on Wednesday.
Also Wednesday, it was dahlia planting time! The kids went out to the garden and prepared the soil for planting the bulbs. While they were out there, they looked for and found the rocks they painted at the beginning of the school year.
On Friday, our classroom was full of beautiful flowers! The kids decorated paper and then picked out their favorite flowers to make a bouquet for their mom. The rest of the Mother's Day gift your child created will be coming soon!
They played with the dollhouse in the texture table.
The water tub offered plastic animals, waterwheels, and buckets for play.
At the light table, we had models of the frog and butterfly life cycle to explore.
Our magnetic cars and road were at the building table.
We enjoy watching the kids pull out their memory boxes and portfolios. They love to see how much they've grown and reminisce about things they've done.
The kids continued to share their adventures with Panda. Panda is one lucky stuffed animal!
Every day, friends were playing and creating....
...checking out the cocoons...
...and holding Ginger and Scarlet.
We got the bikes out on these beautiful days we've been having!
What a great week with your kiddos - you Moms should be proud. You are all amazing and we wish you the the Happiest Mother's Day!
