We began our week looking at the story of creation in Genesis. We decided to also learn about the letter "W" for world. Pictured above is just one of the ways we made the letter "W" with wood.This involved teamwork, planning, and once we all agreed that it did, indeed, match the letter "W" we had found in the word "world," we also had the pleasure of "w"alking along all its wonderful winding whimsy! Ha! (sorry...we got a little wrapped up in "w's!")
During our morning circle and story time we also observed that God made the sky. This led to some questions! One of our little three's asked if God made rainbows. So, from there, we decided to make our own puzzle rainbows. We practiced tracing the shape of the curve with our glue bottles, fingers, and paintbrushes. Then...in proper two year old fashion, the glue landed here...and there....and we ended this activity with lots of sudsy, soapy, water table play!
Never let a mess keep a child from their truest form of learning...PLAY!! A wonderful "follow-up" activity to this is always "wash" time. This can be in the sink, the water table, the sprinkler, or washcloth practice learning how to clean our own faces and the faces of our babies or one another. Everything in pre-k world is an OPPORTUNITY for hands-on learning through the power of play!!!
We practiced tracing the curve shape of the rainbow with the tips of our glue bottles, markers, fingers, and paint brushes.
My little two's are FASCINATED with glue puddles :)!!
What an easy transition to go from ooey-gooey-gluey fun to some splashy-splashy water exploration that doubles as clean-up!
What did the rest of the week look like??
Life is made of moments...
