Making Vegetable Soup

We read a book called THE UGLY VEGETABLES.  In this class, the family grows vegetables and makes soup with to share with neighbors.
Here we are, cutting vegetables for our soup.  We saved the vegetable scraps and then went down to the community garden to gather worms.  The children dug and gathered worms and brought them into the classroom.  We fed them the vegetable scraps and brought the worms into the classroom.  We decided to bring the worms outside when they were escaping throughout the classroom!!

Birdseed all around!

As you know, we made our own bird feeders with the children.  We also put birdseed in the water table. This is a new sensory experience for children as they feel, pour, and pile the birdseed.

Not a Box

Recently we read this book. The story is simply a rabbit using his imagination to change a box into many different things. This has been a favorite area for the students. All they need is a box.  Their imaginations have been having a lot of fun, with just a box!


The Pre K students have been learning about shadows. Dreams by Ezra Jack Keats is a story that we read recently. A mouse puppet creates a giant shadow. The students were able to make shadows and explore how they change size, just like the book.

The students were able to build block structures and make shadows using flashlights.

The students experimented with changing the size of the shadows.
