Spring has certainly arrived! Our garden outside of the classroom door
has tulips blooming. We added a humming bird feeder, but when we added
the humming bird food it leaked out! For now the feeder is a pretty decoration.
The toddlers paint with shoes! This was a great activity. We are starting to do
more of our daily and art activities outside now that the weather is warmer and dryer.
We took several of our large trucks outside to our parking lot area one morning.
The boys had truck races! The toddler with the brown jacket organized the game.
Another outdoor activity. We simply put out paper and pencils for the toddlers.
They doodled, made pictures, drew lines. This simple activity worked on their early
writing skills: lines, circles, fine motor skills, and communication.
We always interact with nature no matter what our lesson is!
The kids noticed our log by our playhouse was decomposing and it easily broke apart.
We saw several worms, a spider, and tiny bugs that I have never seen before.
The toddlers planted grass with minimal help from me. We watched our grass
grow in our window sill for about a week. The grass grew so fast, and
felt so soft and smooth.
