3…2…1…Blast Off!

February is almost over, and this week reviewed all the topics of transportation, community helpers, air transportation, and space. Rescue team came to kinder on Wednesday, and kids enjoyed their presentation.

Turtles enjoyed exploration time, inserting straws into bottles, playing with community helpers puppets and transportation toys. One particular activity that they really liked was the space sensory box, filled with sand, unicel balls (wrapped up in aluminum foil) as planets and stars.

In our Creativity department with Miss Cristy, kids painted some craft sticks with purple paint, then pasted them together to make an airplane. The car track painting is such a great activity for our turtles, too. They loved getting a chance to paint with their favorite toy cars. Today kiddos got to make stars using glue, star shape stamps, and glitter over a black craft paper to simulate space.

Hope you have a great weekend!
