Today, Epiphany went on an all-school field trip to the Museum of Science and Industry. Wow! We had so much fun! We went on a hunt for Christmas trees. We explored with wind and water (this fit perfectly into our current study of wind and water). And, we had an amazing time exploring the museum. I've posted some pics below!
We have our all-school field trip tomorrow. Be on the lookout for pictures posted from the day. It's going to be so fun!
Please be sure that your preschooler is wearing their gym uniform for the field trip tomorrow (even though it isn't a regular gym day for us.)
It snowed last Thursday. The preschoolers had a lot of fun trying to catch snowflakes and scooping up some of the snow that had already fallen.
This week, during small group, our preschoolers explored wind. They chose different items from throughout the classroom and made a prediction about whether or not the fan would be able to make the items move. It was fun to test their theories about which items would move and which wouldn't. This is a fun activity that can easily be done at home, too. All that you need is a fan! Make predictions about what might be able to move in the wind and what will stay put.
One of the best things about fall? There are so many leaves to play with! The weather has been unusually mild this week and we were able to take advantage of that. Check out the pictures of preschool and kindergarten playing in the leaves on Tuesday. We had so much fun!
We didn't have time to decorate our pinata since we needed to break it open before Thanksgiving. However, it was still fun to break it open! It was a tough pinata. It took many swings from our preschoolers to finally break it open.
Has your preschooler been talking about our Thanksgiving program? We have been working on songs and poems for the program for several weeks and are so excited to share them with you! On Wednesday, we practiced on the stage for the first time. It's going to be a great program! We hope to see you on Tuesday!
