Soup for dolls

Today we cooked a soup for dolls. We were talking again about Harvest, crops, vegetables, which are growing in our garden, but at this time we were thinking that our doll who was helping her parents in the garden is hungry. Let's make a soup for Kathy!
First we were talking about vegetables - whose are ok for soup and why we can't put lemon or strawberry in soup? How we need to prepare veggies for soup - wash them cut in pieces and what we need for it - knives, boards...

Put vegetables in a pot and we need - ??? That was tricky)) children went to our drama centre to explore it and found that we need a stove!!!! and while our soup was cooking we went to dance, 

Oh.... We forgot something!

Our chief does not have a smack!!! let's help him to make it.
Children practising draw the lines from top to the bottom, but older tried to create pattern with colourful lines. Look how they look like now!

Pig - roll over in the paddle, Cow - eat some grass, Dog - chase Cat....

Ok, ok... we remember - Spider was quiet, but she was very busy - Let's look how  spider web looks like!

How many legs Spider has? What colour they are? Let's make your own spider! It is Itsy Bitsy Spider! Let's sing the song!

Today we continued to talk with children about Harvest. Children remember that we have already mentioned as the harvester gathers the wheat grain, as the drum rotates the feed grain on the threshing machine and then how on the  mill grain was grounded into the flour.
Children discussed vegetables yjose growing in the garden. Hey! do you see an apple on this picture?
Tommy eat in for snack! this is very healthy snack and good for Tommy's body - It has a lot of vitamines and minerals! Imagine that Tommy bites it. How the apple will look like now? And Tommy bites one more time, ond more... so finally apple look like that and we will put it in? Exactly! in a food waste bin. Ususally this bin has? Yes, green color. Do we have nim like that in our class?

Cjildren had an opportunity to touch, smell and taste all vegetables! Some of them enjoy smell herbs some did not like the smell.

Rock and roll!

In our studio children exploring different materials. Today is time to play with rocks! Very special person brought to our studio very special rocks! Those are geological samples.... They are so beautiful - some shiny like diamonds, some sparkly like gold...we have a lot of fun observing them.

there are many options what to do with rocks but children decided to create Inukshuk.

Play dough creations.

The most popular material for sculpturing in our studio is play dough. It is natural safe material that can easily turn to any creations. Today it was looking like that.
