Last week, we enjoyed learning about the clouds and the rain. We all made both rain clouds and puffy clouds. We even got to paint with shaving cream. While talking about the rain, we had a chance to try on rain coats and hold umbrellas. We also painted umbrellas and did some rain paintings using the watering cans. We watched the paint stream down like the rain. We made some umbrellas using tissue paper and spray bottles, as well. In addition, we made some cloud cookies which were very sticky but yummy.
After all that learning about the rain, we are going to finish our unit on the daytime by discussing the thunder and lightning in the sky. We will start by making some lightning bolt and rainbow crafts. We will also continue to sing, “Mr. Sun” to review the daytime topic and use the drums to show thunder and rain. Then, we will be ready to discuss the night sky, later in the week.
Don’t forget that Parent Teacher Conferences are this Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. This is a chance to discuss your child’s progress so far. Please sign up, if you haven’t yet. We are looking forward to meeting with you.
Ms. Marizon and Ms. Julie
