This week in Transitions we continued to work with our higher numbers in math. We worked on the numbers 11-14. We practiced writing them, adding them to a number line, coloring in the cubes, and counting them out. The children continued to practice the numbers by rolling dice and building towers of cubes! (See attached file) In Science we focused on hearts this week. We did a science experiment with candy hearts. Do they sink or float? Answer: Both. In water and vinegar they sink and in soda they float! We also made fizzing heart. We mixed Elmer's glue and baking soda and let it dry overnight. The next day we mixed red food coloring along with vinegar. The kiddos used droppers and put it on each heart. Ta-da! Fizzing hearts! Next, we made our own quilts for the letter Q, using tissue paper squares. We talked about Chinese New Year, Ash Wednesday, and President's Day. Before attending mass on Ash Wednesday we discussed the significance of Ashes on our forehead and then colored the picture. Did you see them on the front doors of the school as you walked in? Next week,our letter is the letter L.
