A Letter to Parents
Dear Pre-K Families,
Water play is an important part of our school program. When children pour water into measuring cups they are exploring math concepts. When they drop cork, stones, feathers, and marbles into a tub of water, they are scientists exploring which objects sink or float.
What You Can Try at Home
You can set up water play activities in the bathroom, kitchen, or outside. Give your child a baster, plastic measuring spoons, cups, a funnel, plastic boats, and rubber animals. For extra fun, try adding food coloring to the water.
Bubble Blowing is also a great activity for young children. Try making homemade bubbles!
- Get a large cup, dish soap, water, and a bubble wand.
- Pour one half cup of dish soap in to the cup.
- Add one and one half cups of water into the cup.
- Measure two teaspoons of sugar, and add it to the water-soap mixture.
- Gently stir your mixture.
- Go outside and blow bubbles! Have fun!
Thank you for working with us. We hope that you are enjoying doing these activities with your child.
Sincerely, the Pre-K Teachers
