The children today tried a different activity today, tracing patterns with little rocks. They first observe the pattern and tried to figure out the begginingg and the end of the pattern. Once the children began to trace their tone of voice began to change to a whisper. They were really calm while making the activity. The children loved this activity and cant wait to try it again!

Yesterday the children made a beautiful canvas. They were so excited to take it home because they said they wanted to show their family and others wanted to give it to someones special. They first painted their own hand . In every row they would add one more hand print practicing their math skills. Once finished they saw they had created a special tree out of their hand prints. They put a finishing touch by adding a glittery star!

Yestaurday was such a fun day for the children. They did a science experiment using a balloon, string, tape and a straw. They first put a straw through the string and helped the teacher tape the string from wall to wall. They each blew their balloons and taped the balloon to the straw without tying it. That is where the fun begins; they let go of the tip of the balloon and it flew across the string just like a rocket ship.
