Ocean month

This month is all about ocean so of course we need playdoh. This morning I used two different recipes. This one I got from my FunShine Express curriculum the recipe turned out awesome first time around.
The second I got from Pinterest and it was a Sandough recipe now this came out more sticky than I desire but I think that was my fault it didn't look like there was enough water so I added more and I should have just followed it completely. I have spent the last 30 minutes letting it air-dry a bit trying to get some of the moisture out and it seems to be working.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

So a few days a go I showed a post of the class cutting leaves. Here is the end result. We used them for our monthly bulletin board.

We hung the seven on the tree. Rolled cotton balls into cocoons. Made caterpillars our of circles and blob painted butterflies.

The Bumbles just love the story the Very Hungry Caterpillar not only did we read the story but they all took turns growing their own caterpillar in this fantastic app.

Humpty Dumpty

I think Nursery Rhymes are so important to introduce to children at this age it is great for language development. The FunShine Express not only emphasizes on a new nursery rhyme but gives you art and different activities to reenforce it in the class.

This is the art project we got for Humpty Dumpty in the curriculm each child got their own pattern and after we painted them they glued on his arms and legs.

Dry erase Markers

Ok now before you "flip your chickens" that I let Littles draw on the table look at that circle. WOW what amazing fine motors :) the first step to writing is drawling shapes and what a great way to make it fun. Dry erase makers come off the tables and we talk about them being special markers we us at school.
