On Monday the kids mixed Borax with boiling water, poured it into a cup, suspended pipe cleaners in the mixture and then waited. When they came to school Wednesday, they all had beautiful crystals to take home!
We played Polar Bear ABC's, fishing for the letters that spelled a variety of words on game cards. This was great practice recognizing those lower case letters!
Wednesday everyone put acrylic snowflakes into their memory boxes and chose their favorite January memories to write about in their sticker books.
They also practiced writing their names on their sign-in cards. This will be our sign-in procedure for the rest of the year.
There was ice to melt in our water tub and after freeing all of the little animals and toys, it was fun to play in the cold water.
The carpet/loft area is always a busy place and we love to see all of the creativity happening there!
During our carpet time we sang one of our favorite penguin songs, played a mitten rhyming game, and learned a new name chant called, "Up the Ladder, Down the Ladder".
We are excited for Pajama Day, Valentine's Day and all of the fun this month has in store. Bring on February!!
We'll see you all soon - thanks for sharing your awesome kids with us :)
