The Creative and Curious Playgroup

February has been a busy month for our Creative and Curious Playgroup kids. In addition to getting to know one another and settling into our new space, we have been establishing new friendships and exploring many fun activities. Here is a peek into what we have been up to.

Through our author study of Eric Carle, we’ve been discussing concepts of print and learning important literacy skills. We’ve shared many stories together, but our favorites have been The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See? and Little Cloud. These are stories we have retold many times through song, our felt board and in our art!

During art, we have discussed Carle’s illustrations – pointing out the colors, textures and shapes we see within his work. Through a series of painting and collaging activities, we created our own Eric Carle inspired art.

After reading Little Cloud, we explored clouds in a few different ways. The children were most excited exploring how rain clouds work in a fun science experiment!

We also made our own puffy paint and created a cloud mural together.

We have been learning about the letter C – it’s shape and the sounds it makes. Using  our surprise ‘c’ bag as a prompt, we sang about items beginning with C and even created a C shaped caterpillar!

In the playroom, the children are most excited about the light table and having daily tea parties! We share cupcakes and tea daily as we learn about our friends. We’ve made play dough and ice paintings and much much more!
