This week we worked extra hard to make some special things for our Moms. We used a cornstarch glue to create beautiful yarn flowers. We had to use our fingers to pinch the extra glue off the string
Since we were using cornstarch glue we also played with a mixture of corn starch and water in the exploration table. Cornstarch has some interesting properties, you should try it our for yourself. (Slowly add water until you get to a solid/liquid state)
We also worked hard to spell "MOM" on our Mother's Day cards. Some were able to create patterns and their own designs on their cards. We can't wait to share them with our Moms.
I forgot to tell you last week that your child received a CD in their folder. This audio CD includes recordings from each of the early childhood teachers (PDO- 2nd grade) reading their favorite book.
Next two Fridays I will be gone on this coming Friday to attend my brother-in-law's graduation. Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Stanglein will be aiding in the classroom as normal. I will also be gone on Friday, May 20th to visit another preschool and attend a workshop.
The Last Day of School is Tuesday, May 24th. We will send home as much as possible the week before.
End of the Year Picnic is on Wednesday, May 25th at Laurel Park at the big pavilion closest to the playground. We will meet at the park at 9 AM. We will enjoy some games, play on the playground, have a picnic lunch (dessert and fruit provided by preschool teachers), and close with an end of the year chapel service.
