We continue to explore aspects of the restaurant. Mrs. Rowe have been working with the children on reading recipes. They have made tea and lemonade by following each step in a recipe. To build upon this idea the children worked together to make apple sauce. They first chopped the apples, then added all of the ingredients into the crock pot to be cooked. While they added the ingredients they took turns writing down the amount for each one. After the apples were done cooking, we put them in a bowl to mash them into apple sauce.
What do you know about boats?
We have noticed the children continue to build boats in the block area. They talk about the different parts of a boat and what they can do on the boat. These are some o the designs we were seeing.
To inspire them even more be projected a picture of a lake on the wall and played water sounds through our sound machine. This brought about the biggest and most popular boat design of all. They build a large platform so everyone could fit them added the wall. Soon after windows and batteries were added to the boat. They even had a ramp for get on and off the boat.
Our next step is to have the children each draw their design for a boat. We will build for each child's plan to learn more about the different kinds of boats.
