  • Going Buggy

    $12.00
    Children may love bugs OR be deathly afraid of them… their reaction can be a learned attitude based on how the adults in their lives feel about bugs.  Bugs are a great ‘science project’ because they are small, easy to find and inexpensive (they are EVERYWHERE!), and provide a hands-on scientific investigation activity when used with magnifying glasses. Learning about bugs helps children to understand their world, and appreciate the environment.  Through hands-on activities, children:
    • Practice counting and matching numerals
    • Use scientific observation techniques to inspect bugs
    • Develop large motor skills through ‘flying, jumping, and crawling’ like bugs
    • Create beautiful music with their ‘bug’ wood & sand blocks
    Bugs are everywhere.  Embrace them and turn them into your living science center! Just sit back and watch the fun, excitement and learning that is taking place with your children. NOTE: Combine this Unit with the Bugs Unit of Study (can be purchased in the Store) for a full month of buggy fun!
  • A child's smile can light up a room.
  • ‘Alphabet Under Construction’ Unit of Study Highlights Book by Denise Fleming Airbrushing A ….. Buttoning B ….. Carving C …… In Alphabet Under Construction, Mouse finds 26 ways to add a construction ‘flavor’ to the letters of the alphabet. Children will have fun designing, creating and ‘constructing’ their own letters. The more children are exposed to letters and words, the more they see writing and reading as an important way to communicate. There are MANY books that use the alphabet to explore other topics or content areas. This is a great way to help preschoolers (and even school-agers) develop and expand their vocabulary. Loving letters and words can lead to a life-long love of reading and writing. There are a lot of fun, learning activities that can be planned using the letters of the alphabet. Through hands-on activities, children: • Create through illustrations a ‘word wall/pictionary’ of construction words • Use cardboard boxes to build, (and rebuild), a variety of structures • Demonstrate their agility and balance on ‘letter balance beams’ • Make yummy vegetable soup and fruit salad, (identifying vegetables and fruits based on letters of the alphabet) You will be amazed at how children start using more descriptive vocabulary when they talk about what they are doing. The more they learn, the more they want to share with you!
  • Spring

    $12.00
    Tree 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!
  • Most children enjoy a trip to the zoo to see the many different animals.  This is a good way to teach children about taking care of the animals in our world, especially those that are on the endangered species list.  Most zoos provide an educational program for groups of children.  There are also some great websites that provide animal webcams and a virtual zoo experience.     Children learn best through active exploration.  Through hands-on activities, children:
    • Stretch and move with Animal Yoga
    • Participate in drama, acting out Goodnight Gorilla by Peggy Rathann
    • Create their own ‘kangaroo pouch’
    • Practice cutting skills by creating a lion
    There are so many animals to learn about in our world.  The Jungle Safari Unit of Study provides activities on other animals children might see in a zoo.
  • Polar Animals

  • My Family

    $12.00
    A hug and a kiss ….. The encouragement to try again ….. Celebrating accomplishments and victories together …… This is how family members show care and support for each other. Families come in all sizes and configurations. Each family is special and different from another, but each family is also the same as others. A family could be defined as a group of people that care about and take care of each other, related or not. Members of a family are a child’s first teacher, their safety-net, and their mirror for knowing what’s right and wrong. Family is constant and ‘forever’ which provides a structure for healthy development for young children. Preschool children are learning about themselves and the world from their family first. In this Unit, children: • Create a family picture album • Use language to discover and discuss things about families • Use counting and math skills to play a game based on the book A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams We are all a part of a unique family, help children learn about and celebrate theirs!
