Beginners: We love to be wet, we love shiny things, we love slimy things, and so what could be better than a whole month of talking about water, pirates, and fish! We will, of course, need to count our treasure and sort the fish. We will be getting wet a lot so watch the calendar carefully so you know when to wear old clothes. We have been very lucky with the weather so far this summer but remember we will go outside at least part of each day so don’t forget to wear sunblock, hats, and sunglasses.
- August 8 – 10 –You wouldn’t believe how many things there are to count by the ocean. We are counting shells, pirate treasure, fish, and ships. We were get done counting we are going to experiment with water and sponges just to see what will happen and if we happen to get a little wet…oh well!
- August 13 – 17 – AARRGGG!! We like pirates but they have terrible manners. This week we are going to practice good manners. We are going to use our napkins and spoons and say please and thank you when we are at the table. We are going to practice sharing with our friends.
- August 20 – 24 –Baby it’s cold outside. Well, it is if you are playing with ice cubes and making homemade ice cream like we are. We are going to experiment with ice and watch how it melts in the sun and then we’re going to add a little salt (and milk, sugar, and eggs) and see what happens.
- August 27 – 31 –We found a treasure map! We are going to see if we can figure out how to read the map and then we are going on a treasure hunt. We will have to listen carefully and follow directions exactly if we hope to find the pirates treasure.
