We had a fantastic day talking all about April Showers Bring May Flowers. We talked about the water cycle and what happens when it rains and when the sun comes out. We had a fantastic time practicing our reading with our pre-reader books and our decodable books. We practiced puzzles and painted umbrellas. We also got to release the butterflies today into the backyard and had a blast!

We had such a fun day in tot school this week! We love talking about rain, rainbows, mud and worms. We sang the song, "Herman the Worm" from the tot pack over and over. They thought it was hilarious.
We read a bunch of books and then pulled out the compost worms at the kitchen table. Next, we headed outside to find the mud kitchen ready to be worked in.
What a great day of learning and hard work!

We started our preschool day reading oodles of books about worms. We talked about how they are important for the Earth and how to handle them. We talked about their body parts, how they move and what they eat. Then we opened up the worm compost bin and investigated the worms in there. Outside we dumped a couple pitchers of water on the ground and up came a big fat worm! CJ held it up for everyone to investigate.

What a delightful day of learning! We learned all about plants, plant parts and how they grow. We spent lots of time reading books and labeling different parts of plants. We're continuing to work on our pre-reading books and the kids are really getting the hang of the repetitive text, a great first step to reading! Find a bit more information about pre-reading texts here.

We love spring time at Little Adventures Preschool. It means planting, and new life, and warm days! Today our theme was all about plants. It's such a fun theme to learn all about the parts of a plant and the life cycle of a plant. Find our Plants Tot Pack Here! We had a great amount of fun today playing with puzzles. Through the year we've mostly pulled out the single piece chunky puzzles in tot school and it was fun to see which kids were ready for 12 piece puzzles. We'll pull out the larger puzzles more often now!

We love spring time and are starting our study of trees and plants. Today we talked all about trees. We read books about how trees help clean the air and how they are homes for many different animals. We also learned that trees are used to make paper and we should be careful with the amount of paper we use because we don't want all the trees to be gone. We talked about letter X today and the kids got a kick out of the ASL x looking just like Captain Hook's Hook. It also works out that we can use that same sign to take our X-Ray pictures. Sweet!TouchMath Step Numerals. We had a great day practicing our reading and learning about the trees around us.
