Our idea for this final month of the school year was to bring recyclable materials to the preschool in place of toys, letting each child’s creative imagination run wild.
We had no idea how many benefits this would have. Besides being lots of fun, the children have gained skills such as problem-solving, creativity, curiosity and so much more. We look forward to the adventures to come these next few weeks!
There is always a first for everything, including bringing 20 pairs of socks to school for show and tell!
When the weather doesn’t cooperate, we spend our days figuring out how things work, such as:
-why ducks don’t get wet as they swim across ponds
-how heavy air is
-why a candle loses its flame when we cover it with a jar
-how many drops of water we are able to put on a quarter
-how to place a cup containing a piece of paper into water and keep the paper dry
