This week in Science we performed many float and sink experiments. We compared different items and made our predictions. The children made their predictions on; a spoon, coin, feather, paper clip, pencil and a rock. What were our discoveries?
We experimented with oranges and play doh. We made predictions on an orange with its peel and an orange without its peel.
We introduced buoyancy! We used play doh in the shape of a ball and play doh with a hole in the middle. Which would be more buoyant?
We started our Animal Hospital this week at our dramatic play center. We observed many literacy, numeracy, emotional and social skills during play. The children imagined they were veterinarians, pet owners, pets and pet store employees. There was interactive and individual play exhibited by all the children.
We introduced Growth Mindsets that tackle challenges with a positive attitude. We are encouraging the children to tackle challenges by never giving up and always doing their best. In stead of saying I Can't do this, we can say I Can do this!
During table top activities the children used letter tiles to print their name. They practised printing letters of the alphabet using a cotton swab and paint. The children performed sorting and counting activities with crystals and numbers from 1-15.
Here are some more pictures of the children during play this week.
