It may have been a short week, but it sure was action packed! With Suzie Sunshine, Monkeynastix, Karate, Movin’&Groovin,’ and Meditating Munchkins visiting the House.
The Easter bunny will be hopping into town soon, and that means all classrooms were focused on egg-citing things. Starting with the Seniors of the House, where they decorated their own eggs to later hang in the windows to shine.
They worked on their letter recognition, pincer-grasp while writing and tracing the letters, scissor skills, and colour sorting and grouping too!
Mr. Singh introduced string art to The Senior’s, where they carefully dangled string covered in paint across their pieces of paper to create their own string designs. The children also helped Mr. Singh mix the ingredients together to make playdough too!
And with Spring-like temperatures allowing us to take to the outdoors, we took advantage…
Both Senior Preschool and Preschool went on a hunt for eggs…where oh where could they be?
Not only does Spring mean Easter and eggs, it also means April showers, and WORMS! And Preschool found just a few of the slimy, slithery ones…
When the hunt for eggs and worms was over, the Preschool class went back inside to decorate their own eggs using eggs to do so!
Where there are worms, there are birds! And Preschool has been working on building their own bird nests, using their fine-motor skills when using the tongs to create such a nest!
The egg decorating continued up the stairs in the Toddler Two classroom…
The Toddler Two’s also worked on their numbers and counting when placing the small blocks on to the plate, matching the number of blocks to the number on the plate. Counting each block as they placed them on the plate.
They also counted the bricks when building a tower with Ms. B before it came crashing down, and braved the tickle of the paintbrush when Ms. Rogers painted their hand for their art piece.
The Toddler One class brought their indoor learning outdoors, when they did a little science experiment under the trees using Easter eggs, baking soda and vinegar…
The results below…
We can continue the ou’s and ah’s because the weekend is here, and it’s a long one!
From us to you, we wish you all a very Happy Easter!
