Week 21 Letter Ff, star word 'and', Chinese New Year continued, Ground Hogs' Day!

What a great week!
Here are some of the books we enjoyed:

We began our week with these adorable little ground hog snacks!

Take a look...we can even make the little ground hog pop out!

We then made our own puppets~

We love our morning gets our brains thinking right from the beginning of the day!

We finished our groundhog day with these cutie pies!
We learned so much about these little mammals:
They are also called whistle pigs,
they can swim,
they are super smart burrow builders!

We also continued with the Chinese New Year.
The discovery table is filled with "noodles" and chopsticks!
We couldn't study the Chinese culture without tasting fortune cookies!  Fun and delicious discovering!

The dramatic play area is set up for tea for 4...

We began the guessing jar awhile ago.
Here is what it looks like while in use.
This is one of our favorite daily activities!

Here is some patterning at its finest!

One of my favorite parts of kindergarten 
(and one we do not get to do enough)
is just letting kids create!
We had a table full of hearts, stickers, lacy doilies 
and 30 minutes to just make a valentine collage!

Just plain old fashioned using our creative energy!

Another way of creating...blocks!

Here are some of the family projects for February!

Nice photo bomb!
