A Little Bit of Fun & a Chance to Win!

Want to hear something funny? I was in such pain yesterday (dental visit) that I was popping acetaminophen and ibuprofen like it was candy and was still miserable. Then my dentist called to check if everything was alright, and what did I tell him? "Yes, everything's fine, thanks for calling!" For some reason I just couldn't admit to weakness lol. My face is still a bit swollen, but it's feeling a lot better. Hopefully I'll be 100% soon!

Recently I tried something with my kiddos that I thought might be perfect for my kinders! I had visions of doing a sensory center activity, but my kids showed me how we could go in so many more directions with it!
First up, science! We talked about the absorption of water:

Then we observed and described:

We had a bit of imaginary fun :

Then we hit some basic math skills:

We finished up with number sense:
