Mayflower ? Sunflower?
Today I asked did they remember what the name of the boat the pilgrims rode to America was called .
The sunflower ?
The flower ?
It starts with ( Mmm) .
How in the world did the Mayflower float on top of the water ? How does anything float ?
We picked a few things from our play room and did sink / floats experiments.
Will the cup float ? It is shaped like a boat. Will the snack basket float ? It has a lot of holes Will the car float ? Its very small.
After we tried this as a class it was left out for individual exploration.
I had a couple things left in my Thanksgiving box that are not really ” how I teach ” but would be fun for the kids and I hated to throw them away.
The girls put together a Thanksgiving necklace . ( Great fine motor practice ! )
The boys worked on little teepees . ( Again… great fine motor ! )
When we got outside we found that most of the leaves from our trees on the playground had fallen and there was a beautiful yellow carpet of leaves . It was a wonderful fall day.
