We engaged in many pink, red and (sugary) activities this week. Below, Hazel and Colin work hard on making cards at the writing table.
I worked with Hazel on "estimating" which of the colors had the most or least amount of hearts. This ability is theoretically part of Piaget's theory of cognitive development: to logically determine that a certain quantity will remain the same despite adjustment of the container, shape, or apparent size.
We decorated our Valentine boxes. Below, Jackson put his own faces on the stickers!
The end of a head of lettuce made for "berry-looking" prints.
It was Noe's idea to try an apple.
Outside there were fun puddles left over from the snow that we could dig in.
Later we folded the big piece of paper up to make a symmetrical print.
Some of the trains held hearts as cargo.
Sinh admired his own beadwork in the mirror.
And brought the red jam to go with it too!
On Friday we had the big paper out to draw on. In addition to everyone's smiley faces, Colin drew a tall tall ladder to the sun!
Sinh enjoyed making pens for the small plastic animals with Violet.
And, we made some new playdough!
