The Ra-Ra Report
Can you believe it's almost spring? Ra-Ra here, and I'm feeling it. I'm feeling a lot of things, though, because I'm using all five of my senses. I can feel my soft fur, and smell fresh veggies, and taste the crispy hay that Ms. Caitlyn's daily Bunny Helper puts in my cage.
Our five senses, that's what we've been learning about lately here at EcoBaby, and boy these kids are on a roll. I guess because when you're growing up with a whole world to discover all around you, you put those senses to the test! Check it out:
At the preschool our friends have been hard at work, putting all their senses into their daily art and academics. They experimented painting with different textures, mixing things like epsom salt, coffee, and oats into their tempera paints. You know what I like the best about this project? I got to nibble on the extra oats that fell off the tables!
Comparing soft felt A's and 9's with rough sandpaper ones was the name of the game for our next project, and our preschool friends especially enjoyed checking out how different it felt to color with markers on the soft ones, and crayons on the rough ones. Unfortunately, I didn't get to taste this project.
Our student teacher Hali showed us how to feel our way through crafting slimy strawberry scented dough from scratch! I didn't get to taste that, either. But the kids were excited to show me their art when they saw how finger painting in bags could combine two different colors to create a whole new one.
I love it when they show me their stuff!
Well that's all the news that's fit to nibble from the preschool- I'm going to give it over to Cooper at the daycare, and you'll be hearing from us again soon!
The coop scoop
Thanks, Ra-Ra! Our toddlers are over here testing their senses out every day, too. Ms. Jasmin looked in the storage closet for everything she could find that would be interesting to touch and feel. Look at this- soft flour, hard beans, and lots more!
I guess I don't have to tell you about the infants- you know they get their hands on whatever they can touch! But all bunny-joking aside, the toddlers and infants both use their senses to smell and taste new and wonderful foods every day because of Ms. Robyn's uniquely healthy meals. And the best part? Ra-Ra and I get all the yummy veggie scraps.
Being a bunny at EcoBaby is great- but being a kid here is even better!
I see everything that goes on in our preschool classrooms. This is my account of a day in the life of the Eco Baby Bunny
