Sink and Float Exploration

In the preschool the children have been really enjoying water play. Through this activity we have also began exploring sink and float using different items throughout the classroom. The children created rafts using popsicle sticks, foam, and tooth picks.

Preschool Office Play

We set up a preschool office with materials donated by one of our families.  The children are engaged in pretend play, communication, writing and math. 

New Manipulative

We introduced a new manipulative into our learning environment.  The children can match shapes and colors.  They can also use a diagram as a model for building.

Our community

Our preschoolers are comfortable asking questions of adults.  The police came to the park to talk to the neighbor about the chickens.  Our preschoolers asked them questions and the Cambridge Police Officer was kind and respectful, answering their questions.
