Good Afternoon Families!
This week in the Tulip class was all about sea animals, a topic I love to explore! We sang the shark song (Mama shark do do do do do do) which is a popular one. And we had a variety of fun sea animal books including, "Rainbow Sea" and "Mr. Sea Horse", that our friends brought in to share with us (thank you!). During circle time we got to look at some sea shells from the beach which the kids really seemed interested in. We've also noticed that a lot of our friends are using their words more often times then not and also following our routine during transitions without being helped. It is truly awesome to see!
On Monday we got to make ocean sensory bags. We made these bags using oil, blue and white paint, and also some glitter. Squishy, fun time! We also used the bags again during circle time.
On Tuesday we made oysters with paper plates and a cotton ball as our pearl. The kids got to decorate the plate and paste the pearl. Also, for yoga with Vanessa, our pose of the week was Surfer Pose (Warrior II), which was perfect to go along with our theme. So as Vanessa stood in the pose, we pretended to be little sharks and swim under her legs.
On Wednesday we created jellyfish out of paper towel rolls. The kids got to paint (which appears to be a class favorite) the toilet paper rolls and then we let them dry over night so we could finish them on Thursday when we stuck googly eyes and cut out the tentacles. They kind of turned into a cross breed of jelly fish and squid, but still turned out cute!
On Thursday we had the kick off of our Splash Day! Our kids loved it! We had a PVC pipe that had holes in it and was hung in the air and 3 baby pools filled with water and also the sensory tubs. Their favorite part of course was the large puddle of mud that the hose created. They were all giggling and running through it and splashing, it was really fun to see.
On Friday we had another successful Splash Day and yet again a ton of fun at our morning dance party.
Next week we will be continuing our June Beach theme by focusing on Land and Air Animals!
