On Monday we set the stage for beautiful crystals to grow. In groups of four, the children crumpled up paper towels, added liquid watercolor, and then with the help of a parent, poured over a mixture of salt, bluing, water, and ammonia. We then set the crystal boxes on the counter and watched them grow all week long!
By Wednesday, we were noticing a lot more growth!
We practiced number recognition with a fun "hide the heart" flannel board game. The kids had a great time hiding a tiny heart behind large numbered hearts and trying to find it!
The kids drew their second self portrait of the year this week. They had fun looking in the mirror, observing their features, and creating a special portrait. :)
We made love potions in our water tub.
The kids are busy making valentines at the creation station!
Our light table was covered in pretty gems, fairies, and little cups and baskets.
Here's a look at your wonderful children playing all around the room!
Having fun at the science station...
Challenging themselves with puzzles!
They love to create with blocks.
Alphabots never go out of style. :)
We had great time at the carpet learning a new yoga sequence and dancing with our stuffies.
We read Llama Llama Red Pajama and a story about a big moose.
