During this Handwriting activity the preschoolers were able to create "Mat Man". Mat Man is a classroom character that embodies Learning Without Tears unique approach to drawing with multisensory activities and strategies that help young learners develop strong drawing and cognitive skills. Throughout the year we draw Mat Man and sometimes we use the Mat Man wooden sticks to create a bigger version of him.

Every Tuesday Mrs. Kane leads us in Guidance. We learn how to manage our feelings, best ways to calm down and how to play with others. Some days we even get to play a game! The morning class enjoyed a game of "In the river, on the bank". This is a game that enhances our listening skills. Thank you, Mrs. Kane!

We recently completed a sink or float experiment. The students were given an egg and then had the opportunity to pick a small item to put in their egg. They had many items to choose from such as: a key, penny, rock, pom-pom, plastic button, etc. They put the egg in the water to see if it would sink or float. When they made the discovery that it would float, they were able to take their item out of the egg and hypothesize if the item would sink or float.
