Letter P is for . . .

. . . Puzzles. It was puzzle mania during centers this week, we had puzzles of all different sizes and shapes.
. . . Puppets. For more information on our puppet fun, check out our post found here.

. . . Puppy Patterns.

We made patterns using little plastic dogs this week. Essentially you could make patterns out of anything that you have a lot of in different shapes or sizes. (Buttons, noodles, blocks, plastic toys, etc.) Since it was letter P week, we used puppies. I made strips of papers with patterns using the colors of the dogs. They matched each dog to each color. At the end, the kids had to figure out which puppy came next. Then, they had a strip with no colors where they could make their own pattern (or maybe just play with the puppies : )

. . . Popcorn!
. . . Pepperoni Pizza! We made some for snack and sang the song, "I Like to Eat Pepperoni Pizza."

. . . Pretty Pennies! We shined pennies to make them nice and Pretty.

Here's What You Need:
4 tbsp Vinegar
1 tsp salt
vegetable oil

Here's What You Do:
1. Mix together the salt and vinegar in a small bowl.
2. Drop in your pennies. If your pennies don't become instantly clean, stir them a little with a wooden spoon.
3. Polish them with the rag and a drop of vegetable oil.
