Earth Day

Our class did our part on Friday as we cleaned up our playground for Earth Day!  Here are some pictures of our boys and girls loving the Earth and picking up litter!

Ms. Y and her Yodeling Yawn

Ms. Y arrived this morning and taught us how to do her Yodeling Yawn! She brought a yacht, a yak, a yoyo, some yarn, a yoke, a yellow jacket, a York Peppermint Patty,  and even some yogurt for snack. This week, we will be working at the Water Table experimenting with Sink and Float with YACHTS.  In the Housekeeping Area, students will be working at the YUMMY Sweet Shop.  In Art Area, we will be working with long and short YARN to create paintings.  Another center area will be playing a YELLOW Seek and Find Game.  In the Block Area, the students will be boarding a YELLOW School Bus for a great adventure (pix to come)!

Happy 5th Birthday to Sophia!

Mr. D likes to DANCE!

Oh, what a dazzling dancer Mr. D is!  He has come to show us some new moves as we dart and dash around the room!  The boys and girls were delighted to find our letter Dd centers for the week: Doctors Office, Dress-up, Dinosaur Land, Doll House, and Dinosaur Art/Playdough.

Q never comes without U!

Best Friends, That's what they are!
Mr. Q never travels with Ms. U.
We learned that Qu makes the 'qu' sound and letter U makes a short sound of u like in up and umbrella.  The children enjoyed centers as they wrote with Quills, built a Queen's castle, painted with Q-tips, played the Quarter toss game, and filled Quarts of water in the water table.
