Early Childhood / Week 8 / May 4-8

Song of the week: Five Spring Flower

“Five spring flowers, all in a row.

The first one said, “We need rain to grow!”

The second one said, “Oh my, we need water!"

The third one said, “Yes, it is getting hotter!”

The fourth one said, “I see clouds in the sky."

The fifth one said, “I wonder why?”

 

Then BOOM went the thunder

And ZAP went the lightning!

That springtime storm was really frightening!

But the flowers weren’t worried-no, no, no! 

The rain helped them to grow, grow, GROW! 

Daily Learning Goal: 

  • What do you know about gardens? 

Activity:  

 

  1. We are going to start talking about gardens this week! Ask your child, “What do you know about gardens?” Write down their answers. 

  1. Look at the story below: A Garden to Explore. After reading the story, have your child draw a picture of a garden. While doing this you can talk about what grows in a garden, what lives in a garden, and what a garden needs to grow. See below for example! 

 

 

Words in Motion:  

Planting a garden gets our bodies moving a lot!  Go through these movements with your child!
