Spring is in the air and this always puts me in the mood to plant things. I do not have a green thumb, but I love to try! That is why I love to start seeds and send them home for you to keep them alive! Today, we planted an herb garden for school. We planted cilantro, oregano, basil, and parsley. I can’t wait to use the fresh herbs we are growing! Fingers crossed I can keep them alive! I hope the kiddos will help remind me to water them!
Now that we are done with our letter of the week we will do many letter activities that include the whole alphabet or letters that are important to the students… like the letters in their name. Today we read my favorite alphabet book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom; This book will be in the classroom for the rest of the school year, and I am sure read over and over again. We will also be working on writing our letters and names in a more formal way since they have been exposed to every letter of the alphabet now.
We read the book Whose Garden Is It? by Mary Ann Hoberman. I love this book! The garden is claimed by the gardener, bugs, animals, sun, rain, seeds… the children all agreed that all of the things are important to help a garden grow. Billy bought kinetic sand for our sensory table. If you haven’t played with this yet, you should! It is so cool!
