Pouring Maple Syrup on a Pancake
This week on our food prep shelf the children have had the opportunity to practice pouring maple syrup on a pancake.
Special Sound of the Week
Our special sound is /k/ as in kitten! The group was shown several objects that start with the sound /k/. The children were also shown the sandpaper letter K too! After we talked about this weeks special sound we read a book called 'My First Kwanza'. Everyone had smiles on their face as we sang,
Three Little Kittens.
We learned about Morocco from Zakarya's parents
Did your child bring home his/her passport from school? They went on an exciting adventure when Zakarya’s parents visited the classroom to help the children learn about Morocco. We learned that Morocco is located in Africa and is bordered by the North Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Some children excitedly raised their hands that they had visited California, a state just about the size of Morocco. Del and Adam dressed in beautiful clothing, the way they would dress to celebrate an important day. The children saw the Moroccan flag and were very interested to hear Zakarya say the names of some animals in Arabic. Some children excitedly recognized couscous as something they enjoy eating too! And children thought carefully about how much longer it would take to cook food in a Moroccan tagine, as opposed to a microwave. Mmm… the mint leaves smelled so delicious and we could imagine what the mint tea would taste like that many Moroccans enjoy on a daily basis. The children looked carefully at the details as Zakarya passed around a delicate figure of a camel. The children happily thanked Zakarya’s parents for visiting us and for teaching us about Morocco.
Benjamin's mom helped us learn about dolphins
We were so excited when Benjamin's mom visited today to talk with us about dolphins. She showed us an interesting book with photos of bottlenose dolphins. We were amazed to learn there are twenty six types of dolphins! There are even river dolphins and ocean dolphins. The children were interested to learn that dolphins have hair and are mammals too. One of our CH1 friends shared that he has 21 1/2 teeth, compared to the dolphins 130 teeth. Did you know dolphins sleep sixteen hours a day and always sleep with one eye open? The children really enjoyed seeing photos of Benjamin swimming with dolphins in Mexico.
During our sound of the week presentation children were excited to remember how earlier in the day, Benjamin's mom talked with us about dolphins, which also begins with /d/ like the other objects we talked about; drum, dragonfly, dreidel and deer. The children listened to a story about digging dogs. We also learned a song about dolphins....
