Today we experimented with “oobleck”. This is a mixture of corn starch and water that rapidly changes consistencies as it is handled. Many of the children like to describe it as having a “melting” effect. Not only is it a cool sensory experiment, it provides an opportunity for scientific conversations!!!
Several other activities occurred in the classroom also. We introduced the “The Red Lemon”. This particular book is a great tool for learning to rhyme! We practiced counting with wine corks and experimented with gravity by building marble tracks. Time outside is always a highlight of the day!
St. Mary’s believes that all children have the right to the highest quality early childhood education. The benefits of the child’s involvement in a high quality program are proven. It is our intention that all children and families who walk through our doors experience the best educational experience possible.
