$12.00Frosty 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’!$129.0024 Units of Study Save $159 Click on a Unit of Study to add it to your package.

It starts with the things they know best – their families and where they live.$12.00Living in a peaceful world allows all of us to excel and be the best we can be. Teaching children how to be successful in school and life IS peaceful living. This is what we want for our children!$12.00Tree buds swelling ….. Birds singing bright and early ….. Green plants peeking through the dirt ….. Spring starts slowly then bursts upon us! After weeks of being cooped up inside because of cold, winter weather, we are all anxious to get outside and look for those first signs of spring. Teaching children to really ‘look at’ and use all of their senses to discover the changes in their environment that heralds spring is something that they can use to examine and explore all of their surroundings. Being aware of their surroundings is one way we can help children gain confidence by feeling safe, in control and able to make good decisions about their actions. Exploring the subtle changes that brings on spring encourages children to be scientific observers. Through hands-on activities, children: · Explore the signs of spring, and how living things react to longer days and warmer temperatures · Learn about maple syrup time, and the yumminess of maple syrup · Discover how birds use many materials to make their nest Spring is a time of new beginnings and rejuvenation. Discover with your children all the wonders of spring!$12.00Snuggle up with someone you love$12.00A dark sky alight with stars ….. Planets viewed through amazing telescopes ….. Is there really life on Mars? …… The idea of what outer space holds is intriguing to many of us. Children are too young to grasp the entire concept of space – solar systems, galaxies and our Universe…. For that matter, many of us are confused!! Here is a great explanation of the difference from NASA. The following is excerpts from https://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/news-display.cfm?News_ID=573 Our Solar System consists of our star, the Sun, and its orbiting planets (including Earth), along with numerous moons, asteroids, comet material, rocks, and dust. Our Sun is just one star among the hundreds of billions of stars in our Milky Way Galaxy. The universe is all of the galaxies – billions of them! NASA’s telescopes allow us to study galaxies beyond our own in exquisite detail, and to explore the most distant reaches of the observable universe. In this Unit, children learn about space through these hands-on activities: • Create a picture of planets and orbits using various painting techniques • Use rockets for a trio of mathematical activities • Pretend to ‘walk on the moon’ like an astronaut There are so many things to do in the great outdoors. Invite the children to come up with other ideas to incorporate into your planning all year long. Think about this (again from https://nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov/news-display.cfm?News_ID=573) You are one of the billions of people on our Earth. Our Earth orbits the Sun in our Solar System. Our Sun is one star among the billions in the Milky Way Galaxy. Our Milky Way Galaxy is one among the billions of galaxies in our Universe. You are unique in the Universe!$12.00Discover the artist in you!$12.00There are many types of musical instruments that are easy to make with children.
