The preschoolers started their day by writing in their journals!
During circle time we talked about how sunscreen protects our skin from the harmful rays of the sun. We talked about how the sun can hurt our skin if we get too much. We did a science experiment using paper about how the sun can be damaging. We put sunscreen onto our hands and pressed on the paper. We then sat the paper out in the sun. When we brought it back into the classroom after a couple hours in the sun, we could see how the sunscreen kept the paper bright and vibrant and how the unprotected paper was dull. We compared the effect on the paper to our skin.
During centers, we brought out some favorite centers we have done throughout the year. We used our magnetic alphabet letters to practice spelling our names and other names. We also used egg cartons and marbles to practice counting and 1 to 1 correspondence!
We did some easel painting using eyedroppers and white paper. The preschoolers loved making designs and seeing the paint drip down on the paper. WE left these at school to dry.
During Jesus time we discussed how we could show and share Jesus love by using everyday situations. It made it even more realistic when the preschoolers names were added into the stories.
See many of you tomorrow!
