This week we studied the characteristics of tubes and we also started talking about where we can find tubes. We talked about that tubes are usually hallow, round and can be open or closed on the ends. We explored many different types of tubes while we were talking about how they looked. Today we talked about the downspouts on a building and how they help move water away from the building through tubes. To do this we looked at funnels and talked about how they are larger circles that have a small tube at the end to help us move water into a smaller object. We used a funnel to move water from a large measuring cup into a small water bottle.
In Second Steps this week we reviewed Caring and Helping. We talked about how we can listen to our friends and then we are able to help them. We also read some books about being a good friend and being kind to each other. We have talking a lot about not being a bully, someone who hurts peoples feelings on purpose or physically hurts someone. We talked about telling an adult right away if this happens. Here is the home link to support caring and helping at home.
