The gatekeepers are guarding the castle. Ms. Kim has sparked a huge interest in castles in the afternoon class by using an accent to pretend to be the gatekeeper and adding magic potions to the mix.
Can you catch bubbles with your dry hands, wet hands and soapy hands? Which way can you catch the most? A.M. and P.M. classes made predictions and the results told us that wet and soapy hands work the best.
What tools make the best bubbles? Try this at home and let us know what you come up with. We used straws, paper towel rolls, pipe cleaners and plastic soda holders.
Our day with bears and PJs was nice and relaxing. Our question for the children at circle was: Whose bear is the biggest and whose is the smallest? We found out together by ordering the bears from smallest to biggest.

Several of the preschoolers started drawing pictures of octopus and fish last week. So we are using their interest to "dive" into an ocean study. This week, the classroom has been loaded down with (or should we say a tidal wave of) ocean books. In Roxaboxen we have spent our small group time looking at the books, talking about creatures that live in the ocean, and looking at different shells.

|During our small groups in Roxaboxen, we have been graphing our eye color, finding similiar colors in the room and using our eyes to follow the lines of shapes and draw them.|
Yesterday, it was RED. Today was orange and tomorrow they suggested yellow.
