Good Day Sunshine

January 4, 2013 - Preschool Weekly

This Week’s Adventures: We explored the sun and why there is less sunlight in winter.

Favorite Activities: We loved making glitter paintings of the sun, weaving our giant hula hoop sun with ribbons, and searching for sunny places along the trail.  We also did ice cube painting and watched how clouds work using shaving cream and colored water.

Next’s Week’s Theme: Goodnight Moon (“Nn”)

Try this at home: Take notice of the sun over the course of the day. Where is it in the morning when you wake up? At lunch time? Is it still shining at dinnertime?
