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.

We talked about what Folktales are. We also did some matching of upper/lowercase letters and practiced cutting.

Our Story: The Three Little Pigs and the Somewhat Bad Wolf We discussed the differences in this version of the story compared to others we had heard. In Small Group we matched upper with the

Shapes, Shapes, Shapes! I can’t resist these shapes!

In Art Enrichment this week we learned that tape doesn’t absorb our paint.  The tape left white lines between our shapes.  We used it to create geometric shapes on our canvas.  We talked about triangles, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids, and pentagons.  We then counted the number of sounds in each shape.
