Things We Bring to the Beach
Good Afternoon Families!
We had a week full of fun continuing our beach theme by talking about items that we bring to the beach. We also were talking about different forms of transportation that we use to go on vacations with our families and friends. We had quite a few friends bring in items to enhance our learning and we definitely always appreciate that! Our pre-tots loved the conch shell that Luke brought. During circle time we passed it around and listened to the ocean. They really seemed to enjoy this activity. We also practiced using our gentle hands for when we looked at delicate sand dollars. We've been singing our beloved Daddy Shark song and have been reading our beach/ocean theme books.
On Monday we made beach balls out of paper plates and used markers to decorate them.
On Tuesday we got red, silver, blue metal pails and decorated them with all sorts of stickers. Some beach themed and others were summer based stickers with lolly pops, ice cream cones and cherries. Then some of our tots went around and collected different items from around the playground and had a lot of fun with it.
On Wednesday we used water colors outside and painted various beach items and forms of transportation (umbrellas, towels, sandcastles, boats, cars, trains). We also decorated a giant cardboard box with glue and construction paper to create a car to play in.
On Thursday we colored some more outside on the picnic table and had a super fun time splashing around in the water (and mud)!
On Friday we used our recyclable items turned boats and tested them to see if they would sink or float in our pools. We had another successful splash day!
Next week we will be learning about different textures found at the beach. If you'd like to bring anything in, we always appreciate it!
Have a lovely weekend, families!
