Planting our sprouts

Our summer squash and pea seeds did in fact sprout!  We decorated special containers to nurture our seeds and then planted them using a gentle touch and a splash of water.

Learning about seeds

We placed two seeds on a damp paper towel and then slid them into our "greenhouses."  Each day we will check to see if they have sprouted.

Ms. Brooke taught us about grains this week.  We made popcorn and had a healthy snack.

Washing the germs right off of our hands!

Ms. Brooke taught us the importance of washing hands thoroughly in order to get rid of all kinds of germs.

To demonstrate how stubborn some germs can be, she put baby oil and cinnamon on our hands.

It took a lot of rubbing and just a bit of hand soap, but we were able to remove all those great smelling fake germs!

We love spring!

While walking on the bike path we learned to listen, look, and point.

We spied several trees with woodpecker holes.

Xx week activities

This week we looked at a dental x-ray and read an x-ray poem together.  We then illustrated the poem with a drawing of what our own skeleton might look like in an x-ray.

Xx is for exercise!  See some of our favorite exercises below.

Ww is for wishes

Have you ever wished on a star?  This week in pre-k we made lots of wishes.  We learned a poem and drew a picture of our special wish.  I wish you all a sunny warm vacation week.
