In the hallway, the kids built structures using straw, sticks, and foam bricks just like the three little pigs. Then they observed if the wolf (a hairdryer) could huff, puff and blow them down. They learned how to make their block structure strong enough to stand!
They got a turn being the big bad wolf by blowing watercolor on a house to make some cool art.
The water tub was full of piggies and soapy water.
We did one of our favorite projects this week and it was a two step process. The first day, the kids built a castle using foam blocks and we took a picture of it when they were done.
One the next school day, they looked at the photo and using the same foam blocks dipped in paint, they stamped a re-creation of their castle. This is a great lesson in spatial awareness as well as shape and color matching.
The kids kept busy with a castle on the building table and wedgits on the light table.
Friends continued to share their adventures with Panda and it's so fun to hear about!
We are looking forward to next week with St.Patrick's Day and maybe even a visit from the leprechauns!
