This month we are learning about Ocean Waves and where there is an ocean there are bound to be pirates. We have heard rumors that there is treasure buried at Toddle Towne so we are going to work hard learning left and right and following directions just in case we find one. We have also been practicing our counting so if we find a treasure we can divvy it up fairly. We have been very lucky with the weather so far this summer but remember we will go outside at least part of each day so don’t forget to wear sun block, hats and sunglasses.
- August 5 – 9 – We are learning some big words that explain how water behaves. This week we learned about evaporation. Luckily the easiest way to illustrate evaporation is to get everyone all wet and then watch as everyone dries off while we play outside. It looks like magic but it’s actually science!
- August 12 – 16 – On Tuesday we will practice what we learned about evaporation with a water play day, wear old clothes! On Thursday it’s bubble play day where we will explore adhesion and cohesion. That means that water molecules like to stick together and they like to stick to other things.
- August 19 – 23 – Man we are learning lots of big words this week when we talk about the hydrological cycle and experiment with absorbent and repellent materials. To cool down we will be exploring how water freezes by making ice and watching it melt and, of course making popsicles.
- August 26 – 30 – We found it, we finally found it the pirate’s treasure map!! Now since we have been practicing how to tell our right from our left, how to listen carefully and follow directions and how to count the treasure and divide it evenly we are ready to try to find the treasure.
