Each week we'll be posting a fun fact about our weekly theme. This week's fun fact is:
The World's population is expected to reach 8.6 billion people by 2030. Wow!
Learning and Discovery
On Wednesday, it was such a nice day that we played outside for ALL of group time! We are trying to take advantage of all the sunny days left this year! Ms. Anne even brought out her bubble machine and the kids enjoyed trying to pop the bubbles with different body parts. It was so fun watching the chase bubbles all over the playground!
On Tuesday, at the Science Table, we measured some of our body parts (like our head, arms, and legs) and wrote the measurements down on a piece of paper, while at the Language Table, we did a body parts word search with finger paints. At the Art Table, we made a self portrait out of loose parts such as noodles, packing paper, and more. For our Gross Motor activity, we did yoga. Our high school friends would show us a flashcard with a yoga move on it and we would try to replicate it. We learned that yoga is a good way to control stress and stay fit!
On Wednesday, we did a sound guessing game (we had to guess the material- like coins, kernels, or marbles- in a closed plastic egg) at the Science Table, and a body parts writing/matching activity at the Language Table. We continued working on our self portraits at the Art Table, while outside, we did hockey for our Gross Motor activity.
