Adalyn, Alex, and Maddie show off their puppy puppets that they made. :)
I didn't get a picture taken of the kids using their hands to mix some red and yellow paint together to make orange, but once the two colors were mixed up they pressed a large leaf cut-out onto the paint. They turned out so neat! On some of them you could even see some bits of red and yellow that didn't quite get mixed up. This craft was an easy one and definitely put us in the mood for Fall!
Of course it just wouldn't be right if we didn't have POPCORN for snack when learning about the letter Pp!
You know what else starts with Pp?? PLAY-DOH!! The kids played with their Play-doh and the different tools for the longest time.
I started sending home Math Bags this week. These are little bags just big enough for each preschooler to fit six of the same item into. They don't need to be the same color, same size, etc. - just the same KIND of item (i.e. - six rocks, six cars, six pencils, etc.). When they bring their Math Bags back on their next school day, we all sit around my graphing chart and take turns laying out what we brought. It's fun to see if everybody brought something different or if two or more friends brought the same kind of item!
