Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!
This week we have been focusing on taking care of our world by recycling.
We had such a wonderful Tu B'Shvat farmer's market. We learned all about fruits and vegetables and keeping our world beautiful and clean. We know if we can reuse items and not throw them away it’s better for our environment. We collected our reusable trash and turned it into art. We used old egg cartons to make flowers.
We used old toilet paper rolls to create beautiful Queen Esther’s (which we will talk about in the coming weeks).
We played with the extra cereal boxes, milk containers, and jars in our play kitchens.
We used extra newspapers and turned them into a seed ball to plant in our gardens. We ripped the paper and put it into our blender to create balls with water we rolled into flower seeds.
We loved painting rocks all sorts of fun colors! We made our own love rocks to show our love for each other and the beautiful world we live in.
We created Andy Warhol inspired art. He famous for painting fruits and vegetables and we did our own fun versions.
This week we looked at different sight words and flipped them with a spatula just like pancakes.
We painted with shaving cream to create a cool swirly design onto our wooden circles this week.
We focused on the letter L and we did a lacing activity which is awesome for our fine motor development.
We had such a wonderful Tu B'Shvat Farmer's Market!
