Dear Tiny Turtle Parents
We had a lot of fun learning about this week’s topics: everything about food!
In creativity class with Miss Cristy our students made a cornucopia using beans, rice, oatmeal and lentils. They loved to color rice with different colors using paint, and after that they were excited to sort it out by colors. Another activity that really amazed them was making corn tortillas; they loved using a “tortilla press” to shape the dough into flat rounds. Children are very interested in experiencing new textures, so it was no surprise when they were really focused on spaghetti painting activity, too.
In exploration time kiddos loved to play with plastic fruits, veggies, grains and protein. They pretended to go to the market, getting baskets to buy some groceries, a great activity to make a review of this month’s topics.
We would like to let you know of our supermarket visit, so tiny turtles can experience firsthand our harvest topics. This activity is planned for next week, we will give you more details within the next days. We would love to see you there!
