Our Fun Fact for the week is: Planes are a fairly new invention (they only were created a little over 100 years ago) but have risen to be most people's favorite mode of traveling long distances. In fact there are nearly half a million people in the air at any given time. Isn't that cool!?
Learning and Discovery
On Wednesday we did a few physical activities. We practiced throwing and catching balls, balancing multiple ways, and rolling (log roll and somersault) on a mat.
On Thursday we had a "snowball" fight with crumpled paper balls. It got crazy! We also played with balloons and tried to keep them from touching the ground. It was a blast.
At the Art table on Wednesday, we learned about what the symbols on signs mean and then created our own. At the Language table we played a mystery box game to sort items by beginning letter sound , and at the Science station we raced toy cars down a big ramp to see whose was the fastest!
On Thursday, for our Art table activity, we painted transportation vehicles with bright colored paint. We even got to paint WITH some toy cars by dipping the tires in paint. At the Language station we practiced recognizing transportation themed words by tracing them with an expo marker, while at the Science table we had to create a "road" to get our toy car home safely!
Just don't get caught without your license!
