Busy 4's!

We started the week with passing out valentines to our friends! Group projects can be fun! We taped long paper to our long table used wood blocks to make sides and then we used ping pong balls to paint with. We used our hands, our mouths, and straws to move the balls around on the paper. It really was beautiful when completed!

We worked on set design for our class project/performance "The Mitten".

Since we're getting ready for "The Mitten" we're learning about plays and imagination. We started at circle time with the flannel board story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Then during work time the children took turns performing Goldilocks. They were careful to include the correct props, 3 beds (though ours had 4 beds "Just in case we need an extra bed" (always thinking of others) 3 chairs, and 3 bowls of porridge. We had an audience and plenty of actors! The stage was set and the performances drew standing ovations!
