If all the raindrops…

April 8, 2014

were lemon drops and gum drops, oh what a rain it would be!

Today in Ready, Set, Kindergarten! we sang songs, read stories, and even acted out some of the stories celebrating rain. We are hoping that April showers really will bring May flowers.

Everyone also made a rainy day picture.

Next week, during the Ossining schools spring break, we will have a special program for preschoolers called All Together Now. It will incorporate the early literacy information we have been sharing during Ready, Set, Kindergarten! but will feature rhymes and songs followed by play. Come and share songs, stories, and imaginative play with your 3-5 year old child next Tuesday from 2 to 2:45.

Make-it Monday’s Sink or Float Challenge!

April 7, 2014

Today our nautical niños built their own ships. Their goal was to create the most buoyant boat and win the title of “Unsinkable”.

Each of our brave builders were given 2 6″X6″ squares of aluminum foil, scissors, and tape. One square of foil would be used to make a test boat and the second would be used to make a finalized competition-ready boat. Each finalized boat was given a crazy name before it was sent to sea.

Once our final boats were ready, we counted how may pennies each boat could hold without sinking.

The title of “Unsinkable” went to the “S.S. Tipton”, who was able to float with a cargo of 13 pennies before sinking.

Vroom! Vroom! Truck Fun!

April 7, 2014

This week’s Saturday Storytime was all about trucks. We read some fun truck books–everyone helped to make truck sounds and to steer–and sang songs, too. All the kids made their own shape truck. Everyone had a lot of fun being creative.
