Activities of the Week
Monday- Art: We made crayon resist art by drawing with white crayons on white paper, then painted over them with watercolors to magically reveal our pictures!
Tuesday-E.P.I.C. (Explore, Play, Invent, Create): Today we took a walk over to the field to play, run, and kick balls.
Wednesday- Fine Motor Skill Building: We practiced our concentration by twisting and unscrewing using the bolt boards, we built up our hand strength by manipulating the gingerbread play-doh and the silly putty, and we used pencils to learn how to a draw penguins step-by-step!
Thursday- S.T.E.M.- (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math): We used our imaginations with the TinkerToys and enhanced our hand-eye coordination, problem-solving skills, and spatial awareness. We also brought out the sensory bin filled with soapy water and the bin of geometric shapes!
Friday- Imaginary Play and Movement: We cared for the babies, played dress-up, and developed our gross-motor skills and balance by using the buildable Hopscotch ring clips to jump from hoop to hoop.
