January 17th, 2014

Continuing to learn about weather, we focused on clouds and rain this week.  After reading Sometimes It Looked Like Spilt Milk, each child finger-painted their own clouds with a shaving cream and glue mixture.

"Sometimes my cloud looks like an elephant and a zookeeper".

"Sometimes my cloud looks like a clown telling funny jokes".

We also are learning about rain and experimented with water vapors this week.  Using a jar partly filled with warm water, we closed off the top with a plate filled with ice cubes.  As the steam rose, it collected on the sides and dripped back down, similar to the earth's water cycle.

Science is always fun!

In Ms. Rebecca's 2-year-old classroom, they experimented with mixing shades of blue.  Then they painted their snowflakes!

We learned that J is for Jaguar.

And j is for jellybeans!

Towards the end of the week, we examined some of the concepts of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s work... on a preschool level.  In my class, we focused on God's love for everyone, friendship, and kindness. 

(To the Tune of BINGO)

There was a man
Who was a friend
He preached love and kindness
He was a gentle man.

I love teaching preschool and making these songs up!

We're good friends in preschool!
