Lesson April 9

April 9, 2020
Toddler Class: 

Ms. Annie and Ms. Erika were happy to see our all toddler friends this morning! Ms. Annie reviewed the colors the children learned this week and last week, did a color matching work, and a super fun color mixing experiment. Ms. Erika dd a felt story, Brown Bear Brown Bear by Eric Carle. After circle time, the children were able to say hi to everyone! 

Primary Class:

The children were happy to see their teacher, Ms. Monique. She started with the Pledge of Allegiance. This week's lesson was about fruit and vegetables. She asked the children that they can plant the seeds from bell peppers. First by drying them, then germinating them. She also tasted the bell pepper. Boy, it was sweet! We had several children who ate some bell peppers for snack. 

Today's sight words were: see, the, so, run, men, seen, so, no, now. An activity children can do is to spell out sight words by rolling out playdough and forming letters to spell the word. What a great activity!

Ms. Cresca read the Bad Seed by Jory John and Illustration by Pete Oswald. It's a charming book about a seed who is bad and decides that being bad isn't that great after all. Check out Harper Collins to purchase the book. If you missed story time here's the Bad Seed story video from Harper Collins Kids. 

At the end of Circle Time, Ms Monique introduced a craft project, How to Make Your Own Vegetable Garden. Since it was raining this morning, we couldn't really go out and plant. So why not create a garden art! You would need paper, scissors, and crayons. First, draw your vegetables and cut them out. Next to make your garden bed, draw a rectangle on another sheet of paper. Lastly, paste, glue, or tape your paper vegetables on your garden bed and now you have your own garden! 
Send us your pictures of your beautiful paper gardens!
