Here is what went on in the centers this week…

Discovery Table- 5 Senses classifications.
Sensory Table- This was the last week for sand bins.
Art Table- This week at the art table we made X-Rays and Xylophones.
Our Reading Street book this week was- DIG!
Mr. Rally and his faithful dog, Lightning, have a busy day ahead of them, but they don't mind. What could be more fun than using a big yellow backhoe to build a pool at the school and a drain for the rain? Follow Mr. Rally through his day as he travels around town, counting from one to five in an irresistible refrain. Marc Rosenthal's colorful, nostalgic illustrations add a bold dimension to the lively text by the husband-and-wife team of Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha. Dig on, Mr. Rally! Dig on, Lightning!
We also read “ How Full is your Bucket? One of my all time favorites! The children really loved this and we all shared something from the day that filled our bucketJ
“An illustrated adaptation of the long-running bestseller How Full Is Your Bucket? (more than 400,000 copies sold) for kids — told through the story of a boy who learns a valuable “bucket filling” metaphor and watches it come to life as the day unfolds. Every moment matters. Each of us has an invisible bucket. When our bucket is full, we feel great. When it’s empty, In How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids, Felix begins to see how every interaction in a day either fills or empties his bucket. Felix then realizes that everything he says or does to other people fills or empties their buckets as well. We follow along with Felix as he learns how easy it can be to fill the buckets of his classmates, teachers and family members. Before the day is over, we see how Felix learns to be a great bucket filler, and in the process, discovers that filling someone else’s bucket also fills his own.we feel awful. Yet most children (and many adults) don’t realize the importance of having a full bucket throughout the day.
