Germs Lesson

Today we did a lesson on germs and how they are yucky and can make us sick!  We did an experiment to see what the best way to get the germs off was.  First all the kids got lotion on their hands and glitter (germs).  We looked at the "germs" of glitter on our hands and talked about how when we touched things or other people, we spread our germs.  Then I asked the kiddos how we could get the germs off.  They said "with water".  So they each came up and wiped their hands in a tub of water......and the germs were still there!!! (that will explain the crazy faces I am making in the pictures).  Then we experimented with soap and water.....and the germs came off!  This was a good hand washing lesson for them because they could see the germs coming off!

Phase in Day 2

Today has been such a great day!  All the kiddos did awesome and were very excited about everything!  One little girl told me "This is the best day of my life"! I think they explored EVERYTHING in the room!  They did wonderful at circle time and at learning that routine-we read "Pete the Cat I Love My White Shoes" and they sang alone with me and loved it!  We also used the Iborad technology to do a few alphabet learning songs and dances.  Our artwork for today was to make a "Silly Face".  We pre-cut pictures of eyes, noses and  mouths from magazines, made hair out of construction paper and gave them a blank head shape.  They used the supplies to make a silly face!  Check them out in the picture below because they are adorable!
