Topic of the Week:

Colors of the Rainbow

 

This week the children were introduced to the colors of the rainbow!  

During group time the children enjoyed singing "Rainbow Shining Overhead" and "I Can Sing a Rainbow".  One of the children's favorite activities from group time was guessing what rainbow items were hidden in the Wonder Box. We hid colorful scarves, balls, and magnet balloons inside. Some of the children imitated this activity on the carpet during their free time.

In art, the children colored on our windows using special markers. We also colored with markers on poster board to the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Thank you to our parents that participated in our rainbow hand print activity! The children observed the colors as the paint mixed and noticed the difference in handprint size. 

The children enjoyed exploring the concepts of sink and float in our sensory table using rainbow colored balls and chips.

We also discussed the new colors that were made as we mixed colored goop. The children enjoyed the texture of the goop and seeing how it changed colors!  

The children also discussed the beautiful colors of our skin while playing with the multi-cultural people and scarves. 

 

Tip of the Week:

THERE ARE MANY WAYS YOU CAN explore your child’s interests. HERE ARE SOME IDEAS:

 

*CONTACT YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER and ask what your child enjoys at school.

 

*learn some favorite school songs, they are attached to the weekly lesson plans.

 

* The Wonder Box: Many of our children imitate the movements of this song from group time using a stick, a klave, or their finger. This fun game is attached to our lesson plan.

 

*TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PARENT INVOLVEMENT

OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN THE CLASSROOM.

 

*STAY UP TO DATE ON WHAT YOUR CHILD IS

LEARNING AT SCHOOL. EXPLORE SOMETHING NEW
