  • You & Me

    $12.00
    Guiding children in developing positive friendship skills will help them as they progress through their school years. This includes encouraging children to define what makes a good friend - both in what to look for in a friend and how to be a good friend. It also involves teaching children good communication skills, including active listening strategies. Children that can communicate their needs and wants are more likely to get their needs met in a positive way, and may not need to explore more risky and harmful behaviors. A positive environment will encourage children to engage with others as friends. Through hands-0n activities children:
    • Use patterning to make a 'friendship necklace' with a friend
    • Make a special 'friends' paper chain - each link in the chain is a friend
    • Complete specific 'friendship tasks' to make a GORP-like snack
    • Create a special MY FAMILY banner
    Children that have a friend are less likely to engage in behaviors that put them at-risk. Learning empathy for others is one way to create an environment without bullies - something we want for all of our children.
  • Explore winter fun!
  • Festivals of Light
  • Have some fun in snow
  • Winter

    $12.00
    Frosty noses….. Snowflakes falling softly….. Hot chocolate and marshmallows ….. Winter is a season that can be filled with joy as it heralds many fun outdoor activities – as long as we are dressed for the weather! Hats, mittens, boots and warm coats are a must! Through active outdoor play, children are able to use their large muscles when exploring all of the changes they see in the environment. They are also able to use a lot of energy and exercise those large muscles! Then come inside and warm up inside with a mug of hot chocolate or apple cider. Through these hands-on activities, children are able to explore winter when they: • Use real mittens to create a special mitten painting • Create words out of snowflake letters • Play a game to understand how animals hibernate, migrate or adapt Every year, we go through many seasons. Helping children to understand what happens in each season helps them to find the ‘joy of the season’!
  • Wind & Water

    $12.00
    Bubbles, balloons and kites ... Running through sprinklers ... Gentle breezes and summer rain ... Most of us have memories of hours of spring and summer fun using wind and water. Water play is lots of fun for children and can be done any time, inside or out. And, most children don't need much direction in getting started! Children may have more limited experience with 'wind play', but almost all children love bubbles and balloons! This Unit helps children begin to understand that wind and water are 'forces of nature' that can be harnessed to provide energy and power for many things. Wind and water are easy to access, 'free' materials readily available for children to explore. Through hands-on activities, children:
    • Learn how air can move things
    • Explore the different materials that can be moved by air
    • Differentiate between 'more' and 'less' through counting 'raindrops'
    • Use various equipment (cups, funnels, turkey basters, strainers etc.) to explore the properties of water
    Exploring and experimenting with common forces of nature helps children learn about the world around them.
  • Wet & Wild

    $12.00
    Explore the oceans
  • Weather is with us every day!  Knowing how to be prepared for whatever weather comes our way will make the day more enjoyable for all.
  • Digging in soft garden soil ... Carefully planting the seeds ... Watering, weeding and watching ... Ah, finally after many weeks of caring for the garden, fresh vegetables! There is nothing more rewarding (or better tasting!) than fresh vegetables from the garden you have planted and taken care of! Children learn so many things from having their own garden. They gain a sense of accomplishment and pride; they learn about how plants grow through careful tending; and they learn how wonderful fresh vegetables taste (hopefully they will taste what they grow!). Children actively explore vegetables in this Unit through:
    • Learning about different vegetables through language activities
    • Tasting a variety of vegetables in the New One A Day challenge
    • Create their own vegetable garden in the Cement Block Veggie Garden activities
    Growing your own vegetables is an activity that provides hours of fun (and work!) for everyone - all ages, all abilities!
  • Under the Sea

    $12.00
    Children are very inquisitive about the world they live in, and love learning about different animals that live in the world with them.  Helping children see the beauty in the world that surrounds them nurtures a love of the environment, and everything that inhabits it. Hopefully this will instill in children a desire to take care of all the creatures that share the earth with them. There are so many different creatures to explore in an Under the Sea Unit of Study.  Through this Unit we explore only a few animals but children should be encouraged to discover others. Through hands-on activities, children:
    • Discover the beauty of a coral reef through sculpting coral
    • Investigate the differences in the many types of sea shells
    • Use colored sand to write their names
    • Explore the many creatures living in the sea through reading books
    Spend some time ‘Under the Sea’ to see what creatures live and play there! More sea and ocean ideas are available in the Wet & Wild Unit of Study
  • Turtles

    $12.00
    Slow and steady ….. Land and water ….. Tucked in tight …… All of the above can be used to describe tortoises and turtles. Through continuing to learn about the creatures in our world, children develop a sense of community and respect for all living creatures.  This is a good thing for our world!
  • Trucks

    $12.00
    Trucks are as busy as the children using them!
