Busy Day

I said yesterday we had introduced most everything inside but outside we still had a few stones left unturned. Today we added paint to the outside easel.  What good is an easel if there is nothing to paint with ? Even with activities like this there is learning that takes place.   There’s the normal […]

Nature Cooperated

Its a good day when things naturally occur that coincide with your lesson plans. It makes you feel like a rockstar teacher though  NONE of it has anything  to do with a plan you made . Like today ! We went outside early to beat the rain. This weather is amazing  !   Mr Randy […]

Sink or Float ?

We did our first science experience today.  It seemed only fitting to do a ” sink or float ” experience since we are talking about pirates sailing on the sea !  I let the first group find one toy or item from the playroom to try and wouldnt you know.. they all came back with […]

Beautiful Trees

Today has been a good day. It was a day of dropsies though – have you ever had one of those ? First a child dropped the milk and spilled it . ( No big deal.. that is almost every day. 🙂 We don’t cry over spilled milk. ) Then a vase was broken.  There […]
