Gathering Activity- The gathering activity was scissor practice. Each kid got to trace their closed hand then cut it out with scissors (3 times to make 3 petals). They then glued those on a blue paper with the stem and leaves they got to cut out. It was really cute and those little boys concentrate so hard trying to cut on the lines! They put their finished flowers in their binders.
Circle Time- She then had the kids do the pledge and weather wheel. They took turns holding pictures of the four different seasons and learned the number 4. They learned about the letter Q and talked about how Winter changes "Quickly" into Spring. They also learned about the diamond shape and how a kite can be in the shape of a diamond.
Color Experiment- The kids then gathered in the kitchen while W did a color experiment with them. Each boy chose a favorite color and they turned water that color in a baby food jar. W then told them how if you make the color a lighter version it is called pastel. She then added liquid dish soap to each color and the boys watched the bright colors change to a pastel color. They then colored two eggs- one with pastel colors and the other with bright colors.
