What’s New This Week?

We explored the letter F this week and it was Fantastic! We collaged and painted with fall nature items, painted with tin foil, finger painted, and read books and sang songs about the letter F.  Our favorite parts of this week were when we experimented with our pumpkins during science exploration by hammering golf tees into the pumpkin, and experiencing what the insides felt and looked like.  We also had a Fantastical adventure pretending to be Vets after our friend Ellie invited us to help her realize her dream of becoming a Vet.  We had a Fun, Fascinating and Fulfilling week.

What’s Coming Up Next Week?

Next week we will explore the letter P.  We will play with pumpkins of various sizes, pop popcorn, paint with bunches of parsley at our easel, and explore the properties of the three stages of corn (corn on the ear, popcorn kernels and popped popcorn).  We will also read books and sing songs about the letter P, and incorporate words that begin with the letter P into as many activities as we can.  It will be Positively Packed with fun!

What’s New in DKZ?

This week in the DKZ the children began the week by exploring the atmosphere.  The children learned that the atmosphere is the “comfort blanket” around Earth that protects life. The Goldilocks Principle taught us why Venus is too Hot, Mars is too Cold, and Earth is just right. Here’s a cool video to continue the discussion of Planets The Solar System Song  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BZ-qLUIj_A0

Nature Hut News

This week in the Nature Hut we collected items found in nature.  The children found acorns, leaves and twigs around the playground. We also colored rice, and mixed colors together to find out what color they would make.  At our last station, pine cones were painted and decorated with glitter.  We love Fall in the Nature Hut!
