It is amazing how much there is to learn down on the farm. The Fireflies, Crickets and Butterflies will be counting farm animals, putting them in order, matching animals with their shelter and learning about all of the crops that are grown on the farm. They will not only be matching baby animals with adult animals but also lowercase letters with uppercase letters. 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 – We will be finding out how farms affect our lives as we talk about all different types of farms. We’ll explore the life cycle of chickens maybe we’ll let you know which came first. Watch out mud here we come as we explore why pigs like mud and see how much mud weighs.
- June 11 – 15 – Don’t forget to bring in a fresh fruit for the fruit festival this week. Bring your favorite fruit or one you’ve never tried before. We will compare and contrast all of the fruit and then we’ll chop it up and eat it. Be sure to check out who won the prize for the ugliest fruit.
- June 18 – 22 – We’re crazy about vegetables! Don’t forget to bring in a vegetable this week we will be using them for a lot of fun activities including veggie prints and stone soup. Try to find the most unique vegetable you can. We’re also working on a secret Father’s Day surprise, but if you’re a mother we’ll tell you.
