April showers bring May flowers......and fun activities in our classroom
The children are adept at stacking blocks and unifix cubes to dizzying heights. Sometimes they need to step onto a chair to add 'just one more' to the stack before there's an 'epic fall', just like the fate of Seuss' Yertle the Turtle. I offered plastic buttons for a change- of-pace stacking challenge. They persisted to create button towers, a fun engineering feat.
Ladder builders construction was popular in our class. The children connected and stacked and created unique structures.
Mixing paint colors is a satisfying activity.....we've mixed primary colors to make secondary colors and recently added white paint to colors to make pastel or light colors.The children were excited to make light green, light red, light purple, etc.
Random outside pictures....sometimes the children are moving so fast it's hard to capture a clear shot
