What can we build and create with water? Our Pre-K students know exactly what they can create with water: some delicious lemonade! Students worked with their teachers to make their very own refreshing pitcher of lemonade. Children connected numerals to quantity by choosing a number and connecting that many number of pictured ice cubes in a glass of lemonade. What a perfect summer activity!

Don't throw out your Amazon Prime Day boxes! You can create anything with them! Our Pre-K Summer Program students made some awesome structures and houses! Children listened to the nonfiction book "The Business of Boxes" and learned all about different types of boxes, what they could be used for, and how we can repurpose them!
