April/May Enrichment Centers May 11, 2014

Filed under: Site Happenings — KK @ MacD @ 9:44 pm

Seeing as we had a variety of academic enrichment centers and “not enough time to do everything at the Family Night” (actual Kid quote), we recycled our enrichment centers for the remainder of April and the first two weeks of May.

The Creation Station has been transformed into a Creation Corner with three Artsy Activities.  The first is the Horned Owl Craft using toilet paper tubs and designed paper.

The second addition to the Creation Corner is this Artsy Activity, Owl Songs and Rhymes, complete with owl finger-puppets for dramatic play.

The third Artsy Activity in the Creation Corner is an Owl Origami Station.   Provided with the directions are various colors of origami paper squares.

The Super Science Center features several eye-spy books and an Owl Eyes-Spy Game.


The children can NEST-le up with an owl book in our Book Nook and complete an owl book report or color an owl bookmark.


Marvellous Math boasts dice games where you can create an owl or color an owl based on the probability of dice throws.

This month’s Sorting Station also has a Science theme.  The bone charts from our OWL PUKE: Owl Pellet Dissection Activity have been cut.  Children have to decipher what bones belong to which animal and what part of the body they come from.

The themes for May are Latino Americans and Dinosaurs/Archaeology.  New enrichment centers to match these themes are coming soon!
