The children had a fun week learning about cooking. We learned how to be safe while we are helping our mommies and daddies cook and that some stuff in our kitchen may hurt us. We learned how to use measuring cups and different utensils in the kitchen such as tongs, spatula, measuring spoons, etc. We did a few science experiments as well! Did you know that oil sits on top of water? We put items such as penny, fuse beads, googly eye, and water beads inside the water bottle to see which items sinks and which items floats. We did a healthy/not healthy sorting activity and some of the children mentioned that pop is not good for us because it has too much sugar and they said they did not like some fruits and vegetables I explained to the children that its okay not to like something but we should at least try it. Who knows, they may like it.
We did play indoors at the beginning of the week because it was too cold to go outside but the children didn't seem to mind because they got to go on the monkey bars! We have been practicing on how to use our bodies to get across the monkey bars. Some of the children were not able to do it and some were. I explained that it will take some time to learn because some of us have never been on the monkey bars and some have. They had a great time and they were sad that we went outside when it was warm enough for us to go out. It's good to get some fresh air and not be cooped up inside all the time.
I did add some games and puzzles for the children to play such as Shrek memory game, My Little Pony memory game, Candyland, and puzzles that are a little bit more challenging. The children were very excited and they played well together by working together on the rules of the game, who goes first, and how to put the game away. They look forward to coming to school and playing the different games.
