We made PAPER in Science Enrichment

Before making our own paper we went through our class recycling bins and found different types and colors of paper to recycle.  We made a paper pulp using used paper, hot water, a blender, and a mould and deckle.  The students selected the colors they wanted and added a little sparkle to some of them. We also read “The Earth and I” by Frank

We had fun with the clouds, rain and rainbows…

We had a fun week talking about the weather, especially clouds, rain and rainbows.  We also did some great crafts.  We always enjoy playing together!  Luckily we were able to go play outside several times this week too.  Hoping Spring comes soon and we can spend even more time playing together outside!  We read Little Cloud by Eric Carle. After the story we  painted 

We had a fun week with Mr. Q and also with learning about farms in preparation for our trip next week!

The children of the 5 day Pre-K class had another fun-filled week.  Mr. Q spent the week with the children.  They searched for q’s in a letter hunt, they made quilts, and Mr. Q helped them make a list of QUESTIONS that the children want to learn about farms.  The children learned why farms are important and they became “farmers” by planting  vegetable seeds.
