  • 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.
  • 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’!

  • 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.
