Hummingbirds! Hummingbirds!

Yes our hummingbird feeder has been very busy and we are excited when we see them. God's creation is wonderful. Next week we will start our project on Birds! We will start with the hummingbird since those are the only birds we have seen at our feeders. We will have to figure out a way to get the birds to notice our other feeders. (Sounds like a good investigation to start off our project!)

This week we had a lot of fun discovering texture with paint. We painted with some funny painting tools: a circle stamper, hair, string, a scrapper, and a few others too hard to describe.

Soon I will get our artwork loaded on for parents and other family to view.

We also finished a few projects from last week and started making a VoiceThread about Preschool ( a few technology glitches but it is working now).

We started a cutting and gluing art project to test our skills with scissors and a glue bottle! Those projects will also be loaded onto Artsonia

We also got a new piece of technology in our classroom this week. We have an iPod Touch for the kids to use! So far we have only tried one application called, ABC Tracer. The app helps us practice how to make our letters as well as letter recognition and letter sounds.

Next week we are going to finish our VoiceThread, start our birds project, and work on some drawings about ourselves and our families.

  1. iWriteWords is another good one for tracing letters, hearing their sound and seeing what they spell. Elaina likes it!
