Today we revisited a short story that has become a favorite during flu/ illness season. We wash our hands a lot. We teach the children how to wash hands but this study seems to resonate with the children more than anything.
The kids were washing their hands a lot today ! They especially don’t want the green bug. 😳
Other things that happened today !
Check out the math happening naturally in our room
Non- standard measuring
( There is a video of Olivia counting to 28-29 but it won’t load here. Also , I totally missed getting a picture of Finn using a ruler to measure that same poster Anisa was working on .)
This is a great example of loose parts use. We have a kitchen set upstairs in the dress up room . Anisa however made her own oven to bake her Valentines cookies.
And we also looked up a video on how to make the best paper airplanes. Maddox ” can you make me a paper airplane ?” Me – I’m not very good at it. Maddox ” well I guess I’ll have to ask my old teacher to come to your school and teach us .” 😳 challenge accepted.
( Maddox’s first model before he asked for my help. I didn’t get a picture of our spiffy YouTube coached airplane ) Also – did you know that working on a situation and eventually asking help from someone else is a kindergarten readiness indicator?✅
