LEARNING THROUGH PLAY: AN OUTER SPACE EXPERIENCE!


                        An Outer Space Experience!!!




This week in K2S and K2M we had a 'Space theme" for our 'Learning through Play' focus.  The children made a Space Rocket with a big cardboard box.  They had 'galaxy' play-dough with star shaped cutters and there were different rocket ship activities out to explore.  They could also choose to build a rocket with the Lego or make patterns on star shaped board.  They enjoyed singing along to Space-themed songs on Youtube and learned a lot about our Solar System.  We definitely had an OUTER SPACE EXPERIENCE!!!

Dinosaur Mania

We're going on a dinosaur hunt..... We're not scared!!!!

K2S and K2M went on a dinosaur hunt! We went over, under, through obstacles and found dinosaur footprints leading into K2S! We discovered dinosaurs having a party!
On our two dinosaur afternoons we were able to choose different dinosaur themed activities to collaborate with our peers. There was lots of great language as we talked about what we were doing and then reflected on our afternoons- what we enjoyed, what was hard, what we would want to do next time.
We.... made dinosaur eggs, started making a volcano, drew dinosaur shadows, followed instructions to draw dinosaurs, made dinosaurs out of lego, read dinosaur books and best of all....ate dinosaur jellies!
