We made (and ate) a food feast in Cooking Enrichment Class today.

Today in Kids Cooking Enrichment Class we had fun making crescent roll-ups and next we cut them into pinwheels.  While they were cooking we cut up vegetables and made a dip.  Last, but not least, is dessert!  We decorated Turkey cupcakes!  We had fun preparing everything and then eating!    

Today we read “Cookies Week” and did a Cause and Effect chart together.

We read “Cookies Week” and completed a chart together recalling what Cookie the cat did each day of the week.  The chart showed the Cause and Effect of each activity.  We also practiced writing the weekdays.

We completed our Emily Carr inspired trees. They came out great!

The children finished their Emily Carr trees today.  We used watercolor and tempera paint, and added coffee filters for leaves and texture. During the class we also discussed the concept of abstract art.

All about magnets…

We learned all about magnets in Science Enrichment by doing many hands on experiments. We talked about the everyday use of magnets in our lives.  

We had a delicious afternoon…making chocolate chip cookies…and eating them!

We had fun taking turns measuring and mixing the ingredients to make some delicious chocolate chip cookies! Next the children scooped them out onto baking sheets.  After eating the scrumptious cookies, they read “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie” by Laura Numeroff.  They made mouse puppets too! It was a great afternoon!    

We had fun in Reading Enrichment!

This week we read a sequencing book, “It’s Pumpkin Time!” by Zoe Hall.  We then discussed how pumpkins are grown from seed to pumpkin.  We next did several rhyming activities and played together. It was a great afternoon!

Another great afternoon in Enrichment!

Today we read  “Big Pumpkin” by Erica Silverman. We really enjoyed playing “Pin The Piece on the Pumpkin”.  We laughed a lot at the silly looking pumpkin we made.  We also enjoyed other games including “Who?What?When?Where?Why” which is a question game played with play-doh.  It was a great afternoon full of laughs!
