Sand and Sea week 2! This is the final blog of the year and it has been such an amazing adventure with all our friends! We wrapped this week up by learning more about the ocean and all the fun things we can do at the beach! Join us and take a look at our last week together!
For our group activities we played a cup game with our teachers and the game involved placing a shell under one of the cups, mixing them around and having the children pick which cup the shell was under - how fun! Our other group activity was an art project that we gave to our parents the night of the graduation, we painted an ocean and sand on a blank canvas and later during the table activities we placed our footprints on the painting as if we were actually at the beach! This project took 2 days, and 3 separate steps!
During our table activities this week we continued to learn letters by playing a game with mini fishing poles! We also did some math at the language table by adding seeds on a watermelon! Other activities involved lots of creations made by the children at the creation table!
For free play we played board games, painted at the easel, built with the blocks, played doctor, house and dress up and just had an awesome time with our friends! Many of us took our symbolic play our to the big boat in the hallway. A group of friends packed food, sunblock, and other supplies to take a voyage to Hawaii!!
During our last day of preschool we spent some time playing outside in the sun! We also played with bubbles that one of our friends brought us!
Happy Early Birthday to our friends who have birthdays during the summer!!
Well this is the end of the very last blog of the year, we hope everyone made amazing memories this year and learned lots! It's been a fun journey watching the children grow into such amazing people and we wish them luck on their next adventure! Thank you to all the families, teachers and children who made this year memorable and have a great summer!!
