Science Stretch Day #1
Instead of finishing up our Bats theme–which wasn’t much considering our schedule this week! 🙂 We opted for having one of our Science Stretch Days: The 4 Kindergarten teachers get together and we pick a Science-y theme (fall in this case) and then we have 4 different thing stations that the Kindergarten children can visit. Here are some pictures:
We cut open some pumpkins and let the kids scoop out the insides with their hands!
This is our sinking and floating station–the children were given mini pumpkins and gourds and they had to dtermine what would happen if placed in the water.
This was the leaf station–the children sorted leaves by attributes and then looked at them with magnifying glasses.
My station was the “rubbing” station. I put out various materials and the children experimented with textures and different ways to rub their objects.
We also had a wonderful convocation on Friday morning and so we missed most of our morning activities, but we did make pumpkin bread first thing in the morning (in the bread machine) and tasted it for our afternoon snack. It was yummy! All of the Kindergarten classes made bread at the same time–our hallway smelled so good! 🙂
This week will be the Little Red Hen–complete with bread on Friday! 🙂 I also added LOTS of new items to our Literacy Work Stations as well as differentiated them a bit, so I will take photos of those tomorrow and post them then.
