Monday was pretty crazy! The kids are always hyper on Mondays. We talked about the star shape and made a star with our fingers. I taught them how to draw a star. Then we learned about the letter W and the sound it makes. The kids bent pipe cleaners into a "W" shape for a tactile activity. We talked about weather next, specifically the wind. Each child experimented with straws and various materials like feathers, toy cars, rocks, yarn, cotton balls, and clothes pins. We first decided if the wind from our straws would move the object. Then we raced if the object could move. It was silly fun. We used wind to make awesome snow scenes on dark paper with white paint. I tried to make wax paper crayon pictures but playing with toys won. We had star shaped cheese, meat, and bread mini sandwiches for snack.
Wednesday Phillip tried to read us a book. He did a good job until it came to reading the words. We made the W shape with finger paints on a table. The kids had more fun playing "bloody hands" afterwards. We read a fun book about how to read the temperature and about the water cycle. For our craft the kids made weather wheels. The kids made dirt cups for snack: chocolate pudding, crushed oreos, and gummy worms. Funny story: Phillip opened up two boxes of pudding and poured it on the floor. Then he grabbed a carton of whipping cream and proceeded to make mud on the kitchen floor. I happened on him trying to drink whipping cream from the pudding box. He was most proud of himself.
