Circus Trains

This slideshow shows all of the Circus Trains that were made for our Family Project. The kids were SO excited to bring their trains in and show them off to their friends. Working as a family on these project not only creates family time, but it also encourages dialogue about the subject.

Have a wonderful week off!

Welcome to the Big Top!

This week our classroom has been transformed into a Big Top Circus! We have been having a great time learning about all the pieces that make a circus happen. We are using mature play to interact at our centers. We are pretending to be clowns and ringmasters. We are selling and buying cotton candy and popcorn. We are building circuses with the blocks and the animals are putting on shows. We are using vocabulary and making signs to put around the room. The Big Top is ablaze with activity! The MWF and AM classes came home with clown hats. Check out the weekly newsletter to hear how we had to listen to a story to put them together. Check out the slideshow below to see some examples of our fun and our learning.
