There of a lot of words that start with the letter T!!! Telephone was the word of the day so we sang, traced, and read some fun books about telephones. We read the books "While Mama had a Quick Little Chat" by Amy Reichert, and "Telephone" by Mc Barnett. Then the kiddos wanted more so they pulled a couple more books off the shelf and we read "Have You Seen My Dinosaur?" by Jon Surgal and "My Cats Nick & Nora" by Isabelle Harper. Then we played some suspenseful and intrigueing games of Giant Floor Memory (always a hit) and the kiddos learned about a variety of different telephones. :)

Itty bitty group for Storytime today, but that was ok, we had a good time talking about the letter S. We did some letter tracing then read some fun books. We read the books "Super Soap" by Clark Stubbs, "The Bath" by Terri Dougherty, and "Who's in the Tub" by Sylvie Jones. Then we did some Soap Science! We did a little experiment with milk, food coloring, and dish soap....which made some beautiful patterns. And last we did an experiment with a bar of Ivory soap. We talked about what we thought was going to happen if we microwaved it.....melt, explode?!?! Watching while it heated up we saw that it puffed up! Then we made guesses on what it would feel like....hard, soft, cotton candy?!?! After it cooled down we were able to touch it and see that it was almost soft and hard at the same time!!! Pretty fun Soap Science today. :)
Our After School Program this week was all about BEADS! A new friend to Endicott, Shannon, volunteered to come in to share her beads with the kiddos. Shannon showed us many different kinds of beads...including beads made out of nuts, bones, shells, coral, and wood. They were pretty neat and the kids were really interested! We finished up by making necklaces and even a few bracelets. Each piece was different and unique and I was impressed with the kids' focus and patience with themselves. Thanks for sharing your beads, Shannon!
