The red rods…… Fri, 08 May 2015 17:22:03 +0000 Read more]]> The red rods are 10 wooden rods painted red that differ only in length, from 10 centimeters to 100 centimeters. The unit of difference between each rod is exactly 10 centimeters.  As an extension of this lesson, we made a red rod maze.  The maze is built by starting with the longest rod and then ending with the shortest.  After the maze was built,  Mrs. Boulware demonstrated walking through the maze without touching any of the rods.  This is one of the only lessons which they can walk on their rug.  Some of our friends have a lot of balance and others are still working on it.

Happy Astronomy Week! Tue, 21 Apr 2015 23:10:11 +0000 Read more]]> We began the week by giving a lesson on the Earth (globe) and the continent map.  We sang a song about the continents, and read “How do I protect nature?”.  The children made their own Earth, and planted bean seeds, and grass seeds.     “The Earth has been incorporated into our environment with the continent map, the Land, Air, Water map, recycled art lessons, and practical life–keeping the environment clean.

What do you see in the sky tonight??  Venus will be visible near the moon if you check right after sunset!

Week of the Young Child: Monday Mon, 13 Apr 2015 22:02:46 +0000 Read more]]>

“Today we know more than ever before about the importance of children’s earliest years in shaping their learning and development. Yet, never before have the needs of young children and their families been more pressing.

The Week of the Young Child™ is a time to recognize that children’s opportunities are our responsibilities, and to recommit ourselves to ensuring that each and every child experiences the type of early environment—at home, at child care, at school, and in the community—that will promote their early learning” (

We simply used 1/4 cup dish detergent, and a cup of water to create our bubble solution.  Some kids immediately started blowing bubbles and some helped create a 2nd batch.  Straws and bubble wands were used to blow bubbles.
