Ms. Nicole and Ms. Sandy 2's Plus T/TH

March 6, 2017 to March 17, 2017

Spring is just around the corner and we have been keeping really busy. In our dramatic play area we used our imaginations and jumped on the bus to go to school and wrote a lot of letters to our families and mailed them in our post office.

Get on the bus we are heading to school!
Delivering the mail is fun!
In our sensory table we have been experimenting with ice baking soda and colored vinegar. We found out that when you combined them it creates fizzy ice! With our experiment we listened to the ice & talked about how it sounds, how it smells and how it looks. The children were able to add vinegar with pipettes. Then we combined different colored vinegars and discussed the how it changed colors.

We loved our fizzy ice experiment!
In the gym we have been busy building stages, ramps and much, much more. Using gross motor skills and our imagination is fun!

Practicing keeping our balance on our balance beams

At our craft table we have been keeping our hands busy decorating Spring Tea surprises and painting on foil with Qtips. Working on that fine motor and having fun too : ).

The 2's love their glitter
Working on spring tea surprises.

We also celebrated Dr. Suess's birthday by making Cat in the Hat hats. We enjoyed reading some of the classic Dr. Suess books like Green Eggs & Ham, Cat in the Hat & Put Me in the Zoo.
