Pretending to have webbed feet like a duck

While exploring the pond in the sensory table, preschool students can pretend to be ducks. They can place a plastic baggy on their hands and pretend to wade and swim in the sensory table water like a duck’s webbed feet. This activity will give the students a sense of what a duck’s webbed feet might be like.

Preschool students jump in puddles

This is a great gross motor activity to get the body moving — and not get wet from real water puddles. We placed large squares of aluminum foil on the floor to represent water puddles. The preschool students jumped from puddle to puddle. They had a great time, got lots of exercise, and did not have to change their clothes or wait for their shoes and socks to dry when they were finished.

Colored flowers update

Here is an update on the preschool experiment to add color to white flowers. We added red food coloring to water in the jar. We cut off the ends of the flower stems and placed them down into the water jar.

Later that afternoon and the next morning, we were able to see red spots and streaks in the white flower petals.

Spring cleaning in the preschool classroom

During our spring theme week, the preschool students worked on spring cleaning the classroom. They used papertowels sprayed with soapy water to wash and dust all the shelves and tables and chairs. They even got down on the floor to wipe down the baseboards. Some of the students loved sprucing up their classroom and almost went overboard with their jobs. It was nice to see them being so helpful and taking such good pride in their classroom environment. I wonder if some of them can be hired out?! LOL.
