Summer fun!

Summer, summer
Time for fun!
We play all day
In the hot, hot sun.
Summer, summer,
jump in the pool.
Eat a lot of ice cream to keep cool!
Hello berries, lemonade, and heat.
Hello nothing on my feet!

Planting onion bulbs

This week we’re learning all about planting. We know that our onion bulbs need sun, soil, and water to grow.
First, we filled our cups with soil. Then, we poked a hole in it and popped the onion bulbs in. Finally, we tamped the soil firmly and watered a little.
From now on, we’ll be watering the onions every day and observe the changes.

Let’s hope we have a green thumb

Growing sprouts

The first days of spring is a perfect time to learn about how a seed turns into a plant or a flower, and set up a small garden inside that doesn’t need soil 😀.
That’s right, we start growing sprouts!

Sprouts are the richest source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. The most popular and easiest seeds to sprout are alfalfa and reddish.
You may grow them in a sprouting dish or just in a jar. Just remember to rinse them every day.

Needless to say, children are much more likely to eat these “baby plants” if they have helped them grow.

Storytime

“Once upon a time”- these are the magic words that open the door to every child’s world of imagination.
Stories help children to develop social skills, empathy, provide a natural exposure to language, rhythm and intonation.
We read them every day and we love every bit of our reading time!
