Coloring Club with Jeanne-
A giant jungle themed wall poster, endless rolls of race car pages, and creating coloring pages of their own, have kept the artists busy in COLORING CLUB. After a long day of school work, it’s always nice to enjoy time with friends while coloring. Conversations are endless and the children often comment, “I love coloring club!”. Well, I love coloring club too, and spending time with your children!
Pet Club with Kathy-
Pet Club is in full swing! The first week we made Leprechaun Traps! The kids had such a great time! The leprechauns visited MAP, took the gold, but we didn't catch any this year!! Better luck next year!! The second week we made pet seashells and seashell homes! Last week we made pet fish and fish bowls out of paper plates!! Can't wait to see what comes next!!
Kitchen Science with Kim -
Kitchen Science club has been so fun and yummy! The kids have enjoyed making Peep playdough, watching what happens when you add warm water to skittles and what happens when you soak popcorn kernals in water. We are excited to see what the rest of the club brings!!
Imagination Club with Trish -
Imagination Club has been fantastic!!! The first club we used our imaginations to create out of Legos. During the second club we had a paper with a dot or a wave drawn on it and they had to imagine what it could be turned into. Our favorite was reading “not a stick” & “not a box” by Antoinette Portis and the kids used a stick or a box to act out what it was. The stick was a magic wand or microphone and the box was a doghouse or a boat to name a few!! Great job Imagination Club!!!
Minute It To Win It Club with Scott –
Minute to Win It! 59 seconds, everyone back away, give space, cheer on your friends, everyone is watching, 45 seconds, blowing that cup off the table, still nine more to go, eating that donut without any hands, sorting and stacking, never give up, 30 seconds, watching and learning, how can I beat the challenge?, how can Scott DO all those challenges?, 15 seconds, keep focus, work until the beeper sounds, every second counts, 5 seconds......... that last one always counts! Congratulations!!
That is the mindset of the Cubby Room on Wednesdays from 4-4:45pm. Come by to watch our weekly double dare challenges.
That was about 100 words. The average person can read 200-300 words in one minute, how did you do on this challenge?
Passport Club with Terri and Carol -
The Passport Club has traveled through the MAGIC HAT to the countries of Japan and Australia. While in Japan, the Mapsters learned their names in Japanese and created cherry blossom art. Beautiful! In
Australia, we made Kaola puppets/masks and learned fun facts like how there are more kangaroos in Australia than people! We will be visiting more fascinating places in the coming weeks! G’day!
Super Structures with Megan and Joanne
Super Structures has been keeping busy making boats, building bridges and marshmallow and cup structures! We have a few more fun challenges to come. So get ready for some more fun!
Circus Fun with Nancy -
Circus Club is having a blast together. We made a popcorn craft (and ate some real popcorn too)! Our group also spent two weeks building a colorful, animal-filled circus train mural for the MAP classroom - come check it out at your next pickup! We also made circus animal costumes. In the coming weeks we will be creating our own carnival games, which we will use to have a fun carnival at the end of club !
Surprise Club with Jodi -
Surprise Club is full of fun and exciting surprises! The kids did a great job showing each other their special items from home. Then we went on a school scavenger hunt all over the school and MAP room. I can’t tell you what the next week will be... it’s a surprise. (But it will be fun!)
