  • Turn empty space into a construction zone
  • The rumble of a garbage truck….. Dogs barking in the night….. Fireworks in celebration of the 4th of July…… Our world is full of different sounds – loud, soft and in between. Noise can be found all around us. We hear different things every day, from birds singing in the morning (early!) to the sounds of people coming home from work in the evening. Teaching young children to listen to and recognize the various sounds in their world is a skill that can help them stay safe as they grow up and go out into the greater world. This awareness of sounds not only helps keep us safe, but it also enriches our world. In this Unit, children explore sound and noise through hands-on activities by: • Taking a neighborhood ‘noise’ walk • Experimenting with sound using boxes, cans and tubs as drums • Building a wooden tower … until it comes crashing down • Making a noise maker for different celebrations Take the time to really listen and hear all of the beautiful sounds in our world.
  • The field of early childhood education and care has changed dramatically over the last few decades. In today’s world, standards for children based on developmental domains are the foundation for quality early childhood education and care.  These early learning standards have a foundation in child development milestones and define what a child knows or can do at specific ages or stages.  Most states either have a set of early learning standards or are in the process of developing them.  This curriculum will help you implement purposeful and intentional programming.

  • Fall

    $12.00
    Acorns falling from the trees ….. Squirrels and bees gathering food ….. Vibrant leaves and crisp foggy mornings …… All of these signal the change of seasons from summer to fall. The change in seasons can be invigorating. Summer may have gotten long and hot. Now that it is cooler in the morning, children can get outside and exercise those large muscles as they play running games, ride bikes, and go for long nature walks. Be sure to encourage children to find those changes in the season – squirrels scurrying around looking for nuts, leaves turning color and falling to the ground, and birds gathering together for their fall migration. Fall is a time of discovery and outdoor fun. Through hands-on activities, children: • Explore different fall items in a Sensory Box • Use crayon resist painting to create a fall tree • Listen and move to special directions while playing a Leaf Game Cooler days, sunny skies and wispy clouds herald in a beautiful fall day. Get out and enjoy!!
  • Farm Animals

    $12.00
    The low of cows ... The baa of sheep ... Neighing horses, and clucking hens ... These are the sounds of farm animals most children love to make! The farm is a fascinating place to children. It has so many animals to look at and imitate. Identifying animals and making the appropriate sounds are some of the first language responses young children develop. Children love to imitate the animals they see. Through hands-on activities, children:
    • Practice counting and matching colors in the 'Counting Sheep' activity
    • Exercise their muscles with the Chicken Dance
    • Enjoy making a yummy 'horsey' snack
    Farms and farm animals are a mainstay of our economy and world. Help children to explore the many animals that live on the farm!
  • Iridescent shimmering scales….. Light and graceful feathers ….. Creatures of the sky and water …. Birds and fish have remarkable, protective coverings of their skin. There are so many things to do with fish and birds that can spark a child’s curiosity and desire to learn more. The more children understand about the world in which they live, the more likely it is that they will care for and respect all of the Earth’s living creatures and magnificence. Children explore the world of birds and fish through hands-on activities: • Practice counting ‘goldfish’, while having a snack too! • Categorize animals by differentiating between ‘feathered’ and ‘scaled’ animals • Explore how blowing can move a feather or keep it up in the air Feathers and scales add vibrant color to our world; birds and fish add graceful movement. Hopefully, children are inspired by these interesting creatures to design, create and invent.
  • Feelings

    $12.00
    Happy times and happy days …..    Being mad and being sad ….. Feeling lonely and afraid …… We all experience a multitude of feelings and emotions. Young children are just learning how to identify and handle the many emotions they experience throughout their day. Children that can recognize different emotions are much more likely to be able to regulate their behaviors, which is something needed for success in their daily lives. Reading stories, role modeling, and using puppets to act out different emotions are all great activities to help children learn about their feelings. Other hands-on activities in this Unit include: ·       Patterning with ‘feelings faces’ ·       Dancing with colors ·       Sculpting a ‘happy me’ out of clay Children that understand and are in control of their emotions are more likely to be resilient in times of stress. This helps children successfully navigate school and everyday life.
  • Fire Safety

    $12.00
    Children are usually very excited to visit the fire station or to have a fire truck come to their program.  Although children romanticize about the role of the fire fighter, it is extremely serious and difficult work.  Children should be taught that fire is very dangerous and what to do in case of a fire. Children that understand personal safety will be able to make good decisions as they grow from children to adolescents to adults.  Through hands-on activities, children: • Learn about the power of the sun through solar cooking • Explore the night sky and make their own stars • Practice jumping skills when they ‘jump the river’ • Discover things in nature through a scavenger hunt
  • Explore our green and jumpy summer friends
