Welcome 1's kiddos and families! For the start of the 2nd full week of school and to embrace summer as long as possible (ha!), we learned all about... Watermelon! I brought in a watermelon and we had fun rolling it back and forth, playing the drums with it and rolling it in paint! We read, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and pointed out the slice of watermelon that the caterpillar ate! We made a watermelon sensory bag using red soap and raisins! We all loved feeling the cool and squishy consistency! We made paper plate watermelons, sponge painted to make watermelons and of course got to sample this delicious fruit! In our free play, we enjoyed getting acclimated to the new classroom, exploring the gym and going on walks! Take a look at our fun week!

Everyone's favorite... Cooking and Baking Week!

     Well the time has come... one of my personal favorite weeks of the year: Cooking and Baking Week! With having a somewhat older class this year, we were able to make so many more and new recipes! The kids learned counting with measuring ingredients, vocabulary with the various food items and worked on fine motor skills by using their hands to mix and pour the ingredients! Who knew cooking and baking could be such a FUN and UNIQUE learning experience! Our recipes this week included: pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, yogurt pie, chocolate chip cookies, pita pizzas and dirt cups! Can you say YUMMY?!

     During chapel this week, Mr. Butterfield taught us that we cannot measure God's love for us. He loves us infinitely and unconditionally! We played in the gym during large, gross motor time and even went outside on a few nice days! Take a look at our FUN and YUMMY week! :)
