Well our tooth sitting in coke is looking very brown and ugly this week. We have taken it out of the coke and tried to wash it clean again with water – as suggested by Lachlan a while ago. Some of the coke did come off. However the tooth is still really brown and when we were washing it in water some of the tooth was coming off. We will keep it in water until next week and see if the colour improves any.
(sorry our camera shots of this are not very good – come in and have a look.)
Our worms in our worm farm died during some extreme heat. Lachlan’s Mum came into to Pre School today with some new worms and helped us set the farm back up again. We use the worm farm to eat our scraps. We know not to feed the worms bread (it will attract mice), meat (it will attract flies) or oranges (it stings their skin). We can feed the worms other fruit and vegetable waste and paper. Thanks Mel for coming in and giving us another lesson on living sustainably.
Mrs Grant has a new drinker bottle that is decorated with patterns of Babushka Dolls. Some of the children knew what they were. We asked families to bring sets in if they had some at home. We got lots of sets. The children had fun matching, ordering and playing with the sets. This helped us with developing our mathematical language concepts.
Cooper brought his raffle ticket book into Pre School last week. As everyone arrived he gave them a ticket. We all looked at our numbers and discussed them. Mrs Gayle made a quick prize. Anders won. He was so excited!
Lachlan made a prize (a shell wrapped up) for the next draw. Hailee won. Another very excited child.
Lachlan went home and made his own tickets to give to everyone the next day – along with another prize (a wrapped up stone). He had made his own number system. Great thinking Lachlan! Ruby was the winner. Another very excited child. We are quickly learn our numerals.
It looks like this game will continue this week as Mrs Grant found three more raffle books at home!
