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!    

We had a food-filled and fun-filled afternoon! Happy (Almost) Halloween!

Today in Kids Cooking Afternoon Enrichment class we had a great time making crescent mummy hot dogs and witch hat cookies!  After having fun making them, we had a Halloween Party and ate the delicious food we made.  We next read a Halloween book and played the Toilet Paper Mummy Game!  We all had a great afternoon!

“Room on the Broom” was a hit in Reading Enrichment today!

Today we read “Room on the Broom”  and used stick puppets to act the story out/re-tell the story.  We also cut out pictures and put them in order as they appeared in the story.  The children also picked out word cards from a bag and discussed the meaning of the words. They also played with a letter matching box and finally did a great

I Get The Point!

Today we learned about Georges Seurat, the French painter. We learned that he started a new type of painting we call Pointillism. We learned that instead of blending the paint on the paper, our eyes will blend the colored dots and make the colors bolder.

Our doodle stick man danced in Science Enrichment Class!

We drew a stick man on different surfaces with a dry erase marker.  When we added a little bit of water, it peeled off the surface and floated on the water!  We learned dry erase markers have less adhesives (stuff that makes the ink stick to surfaces) so they lift off easily.  The ink is also insoluble (doesn’t dissolive in water) so it doesn’t

Halloween BINGO was great!

We had so much fun playing with Fall puzzles together.  We read ” Pete The Cat Trick or Treat”  and really enjoyed playing Halloween BINGO and discussing how the characters in the book were the same/similar to the Halloween BINGO board!

So much fun in Kids Cooking making Pumpkin Rice Krispie Treats and learning about Halloween safety.

Today in Kids Cooking we made Pumpkin shaped Rice Krispie Treats.  We used butter, marshmallows and food coloring. Each child formed their own pumpkin shape and then used a tootsie roll as a stem.  It was fun! We also read a book about pumpkins, played the “hot pumpkin” game and colored.  It was fun hearing about everyones Halloween costumes and we had a very
