This Week In Wonderland

We read Pete's a Pizza by William Steig and made our own pizza's for morning snack. Be looking for the video of the children acting the book out in a later post.

The children have been playing different sports out on the playground over the past two weeks.  To follow along with their interest, we made a chart of different sports and discussed what kind of ball goes with what sport. After our discussion we sorted the balls by small, medium, and large. What kinds of balls do you have at home that you can sort?

On Tuesday the college student's introduced the children to creating their own books. They loved it so much we made our own ABC books during writing time on Thursday.

Noah's Grandma was visiting from out of town and stopped by to be our mystery reader. It's always nice to meet the children's extended family. 

We read Bartholomew and the Oobleck by Dr. Seuss and made our own oobleck. If you want try this out at home here is the recipe:
·         Mix 1 teaspoon borax in 1 cup of water. Stir until the borax is dissolved.
·         In a separate container, mix 1/2 cup (4 oz) white glue with 1/2 cup water. Add food coloring, if desired.
·         After you have dissolved the borax and diluted the glue, you are ready to combine the two solutions. Stir one slime solution into the other. Your slime will begin to polymerize immediately.
·         The slime will become hard to stir after you mix the borax and glue solutions. Try to mix it up as much as you can, then remove it from the bowl and finish mixing it by hand. It's okay if there is some colored water remaining in the bowl.
