Big Sur

Hello Big Sur friends and families!
We hope that you have had a wonderful week! We sure have in Big Sur! As part of our new child-directed learning approach, the kids were able to choose what they learned about, and play with this week! On Monday morning our Big Sur friends decided that they wanted to learn about cake! We think that this might be due the many birthdays that Big Sur has in July. So Mr. Kam, Ms. Ashley, and myself loaded the classroom with tons of bake ware items. Our Big Sur friends were then able to choose what they did with these items! We chose to….
*do lots of “baking” in dramatic play
*have Ms. Ashley read a story about a dinosaur making cake

This week we also enjoyed Paint Dobbers and Magna-tiles!
We had so much fun this week! I can’t wait to see what they choose to learn about next week! We hope you have a wonderful weekend!
A couple reminders:
*Don’t forget your child’s water bottle! During this time we are not doing any sort of community water jugs.
* Please make sure your child has three sets of clothes in their bags. Due to the warm temperatures we are using lots of water outside.
