We have been creating our own village with a river.

We made rocks. It is a great way to practice prepositions, in, on, next to.

We will keep you posted on the status of our river!

Marble run

We created our own marble run using a pool noodle! Mrs. McCoy cut the pool noodle in half. The class took turns coming up with ideas on building with Legos and blocks. It took a lot of patience but it paid off watching the marbles go!

Marble Paint

This week we have been exploring movement with marbles. We will be displaying our new marble paintings in the hallway. Please come check it out next week.

We placed marbles in the paint then tilted the tray to try and paint the paper.

We crafted our own light table. Here's how:
One large clear Tupperware bin
White tissue paper
White Christmas lights

Wrap the Christmas lights in tissue paper. Leave part of the light strung out to plug in. Put on the top and play!

We used clear gems from the dollar store. 

We have been learning what a pattern is and how to make them.

Growing Grass

The signs of spring are coming soon hopefully! We started our own spring garden in the classroom

Wheat grass is a quick growing vibrant green.

First we explored the dry seeds.

We put the seeds in jars with water to soak.

We watched them soak.

We looked carefully at the changes using a light table.

We planted the seeds, then waited...

After the weekend we discovered grass!

Light and dark

Today was a dark rainy/ snow day. We experimented with light and dark using a light table.

We have also been experimenting with colors and how the sun reflects through the magnatiles.
