December 10th-14th

This week in KG-1ECC

This week were were scientist! We conducted an investigation to see which liquid dissolved the Gingerbread Man the fastest. We used five different liquids, soda, water, pineapple juice, vinegar and dishwashing liquid. We set a timer and observed what happened.

The children worked in small groups and they found material, made a plan and tested out there results as they problem solved to find a way to get the Gingerbread across the river without getting wet.

In centers the children identified numbers, matched numbers and arranged them in order, created gingerbread people with different items, Looked for letters in their ‘I Spy’ books and retold the Gingerbread story using the characters from the story in small groups.

We made snowflakes!

On Thursday we dressed in our pyjamas, watched the Gingerbread boy with Super Why and visited Santa.
