Do you hear oinking, mooing & clucking coming from the Beginners department? You’re not alone the Ladybugs and Caterpillars are down on the farm this month learning all about farm animals. They will be identifying farm animals, matching baby animals to their mommies, counting animals and of course, learning animal sounds. They will spend a lot of time outdoors so be sure to make sunscreen a part of your daily routine. We also encourage you to bring sunglasses and hats to help protect young faces from the sun. Fresh air is important so be sure to come prepared.
- June 4 – 8 – The work never ends down on the farm. The Caterpillars and Ladybugs will be shucking corn this week for a tasty treat and the corn silk will make a great paintbrush. The gardens they put in last month are coming along great we are looking forward to a good harvest.
- June 11 – 15 – This week we will practice our manners as we cook up a big pot of fresh green beans and ham. We will be snapping fresh green beans and boiling them up for lunch. During lunch, we will be paying special attention to saying please and thank you to get what we want.
- June 18 – 22 – Be sure to come by and visit our room as we create a giant farm mural on the wall while practicing our tearing, cutting and gluing skills. As we dress up like farmers we have many opportunities to try buttoning, snapping and zipping skills. We’re cooking up a special surprise for dad, SSHHHHH don’t tell.
- June 28 – 29 – This week is out to the henhouse as we count eggs and chicks and trying carrying a basket of eggs softly so they don’t break! Once we get the eggs counted and safely to the table we’ll break out the whisks and scramble up a great lunch.
