We had an incredible time with Mr. I this week!

The 5 Day Pre-K children had an INTERESTING and INTRIGUING week.  The children learned about globes and maps and they made a map of part of our world.  The children learned about the Arctic Circle and Antarctica.  They compared those environments to our’s in Metuchen.  They also learned about polar bears and penguins.  The children were surprised to learn that they live on opposite sides of the world!
The week got more INTERESTING when the children found ice paint in our classroom.  They decided to use it as an experiment and they painted beautiful pictures with it.  The children were so surprised to find out that Mr. I, our Letter Person of the week, gave them the ice paint!  The children enjoyed many “I” activities with him but their favorite had to be measuring objects using his IMPOSSIBLE INCHES!
