Green Room August 7-11 and 14-18

Our last two weeks of summer session 2 will be filled with ocean excitement. First experiencing and discussing the beach itself and then learning more about creatures you may find on the beach or in the ocean. It has been a great summer at Kinderfarm!

+ Kinderfarm will be closed August 21-September 1.

+ The ice-cream social will take place August 31, from 6-7pm for those coming in the fall.

 

August 7-11

Monday and Tuesday: Spending time over at the Kinderfarm beach will get us started these mornings. What better way to learn and to really dig in!!

Wednesday: The children will start a project today by painting the beach onto a piece of blue paper (the water).

Thursday: Soapy seafoam will allow for some fun sensory play this morning.

Friday: Adding footprints to our picture will complete the art project from Wednesday.

 

August 14-18

Monday: The green roomers will create an edible ocean scene this morning. Ask your child what they had for snack.

Tuesday: Starfish decorating will encourage the children to think about how many points a star has.

Wednesday: Has your child ever done the crab walk? He/she will get to try today… we may also get out sidewalk chalk to draw fish, crabs, and other sea creatures.

Thursday: A seahorse has always drawn interest to me. We will read Eric Carle’s “Mister Seahorse” this morning. We have not had a chance to get on Dallas (the horse) this session, so we will try to do so this morning.

Friday: Water fun will end our summer fun together.

 

Best,

Mrs. Rogers

Green Room — July 17-August 4

Welcome to Summer Session #2 in the green room! My name is Katie Rogers and I will be teaching in the mornings. The first week will be spent getting to know each other and talking about buoyancy… fun with water makes this a great topic for summer. Our next focus will be BUGS, followed by DinoSAURS. Looking forward to five wonderful weeks at Kinderfarm.

 

Reminders:

  • Be sure to include a change of clothes, swimsuit, towel, and inside shoes or slippers.
  • Also, please be sure to sunscreen your child in the morning before school.
  • If your child will be absent, please be sure to CALL Kinderfarm to let us know.

July 17-21

Monday and Tuesday: We will spend most of our time learning names of our new friends and helping them learn our daily routines. The kids will also be experimenting with balloons… with and without water. If time and weather permit, we will get out sidewalk chalk!

Wednesday: Water table play will get the kids thinking about items that may sink OR float. A cup may float if it is empty, but what if it is filled with water? This will keep them busy and interested!

Thursday: We will be experimenting with a variety of items to see whether they sink or float. Ask your child if any result surprised them.

Friday: Boats, boats, boats… we will attempt to make our own to float and also get some out to take outside to experiment with.

July 24-28

Monday: A search for bugs around the Kinderfarm campus will take place, after reading “The Ants Go Marching.”

Tuesday: After our science experiment (with seltzer water and raisins) we will head to the pond to see real water bugs dancing.

Wednesday: We’ve been having to stay up a little late, but WOW it’s worth seeing the fireflies light up the yard. We will start working on a firefly suncatcher today.

Thursday: The Itsy Bitsy Spider will be on our minds this morning. Our snack will be our project, as we count our eight legs to attach to the spider’s body (a cookie).

Friday: Our firefly suncatchers will get finished today and hung in the window to enjoy.

July 31-August 4

Monday: “The Good Dinosaur” books will start our week and we will get out the toy dinosaurs. Is your child most interested in a certain dinosaur?

Tuesday: We will use our footprints to paint a Tyrannosaurus Rex footprint… how many will it take to fill it up?

Wednesday: Dino chow will be made in the kitchen this morning. Hopefully we won’t turn into dinosaurs.

Thursday: We will play bingo this morning. Wonder what the kids will use for their markers?

Friday: Creating a dinosaur skeleton as a whole group will complete our week. Individual skeleton projects will be available to create during free play!

 

Ready for some fun,

Mrs. Rogers

Green Room: Session 1/ week 5,6

The Green Room Summer   J

 

Welcome to the green room and summer session #1.  Summer is about fun and that’s where we’re headed.  We’ll have a weekly focus, but we’ll veer off to play under the sprinkler, blow some bubbles or just lie on the grass and look at the clouds.

Reminders:

  • Kinderfarm will be closed for the July 4th holiday!!!!

 

  • Your child will need to bring daily, the following items packed in their backpack: towel, swimsuit, outside/chore shoes (boots if it is rainy/muddy), indoor shoes/slippers and a change of clothing.  Please label each item.  It’s easy for the children to “lose” their items in the coatroom.
  • Please sunscreen your child prior to arrival. We will reapply at mid-day for full day Kinderfarmers.  (A sunscreen waiver must first be on file!)
  • Check the Kinderfarm website for more notes and reminders.

 

Week 5:  July 3-July 7:    Happy Birthday America!!

In honor of our nation’s birthday, we’ll turn our focus to flags, fireworks and stars!  We’ll paint a flag in our classroom using our hands, make holiday wind socks, enjoy a red, white and blue snack, create “fireworks” with paint and straws, and outline a star with paint daubers.  We’ll add some holiday fingerplays and songs to make it even more fun.

Our chores this week are:   Horse water, goats and garden.

Week 6:  July 10-14:  Cars, cars, cars.

This week, we will be focusing on cars!  We’ll build roads in our sand area, create mountains for our cars to climb, zoom our cars down the slide, and create a car using different shapes.  We’ll count cars, compare cars, and maybe even make a carwash in the water table!

Our chores this week are: Pearl, hens and flower barrels.

 

We’ve had a busy four weeks building our learning community.  We’ve enjoyed the sprinkler, pulled up radishes, watered the plants, met and fed all the animals, hunted for eggs, explored the pond and ate ice cream.  This summer is going by so quickly!   Have yourself a wonderful holiday weekend.

Cheers,

Mrs Waldron

We’ve had a busy two weeks learning routines and new classmates names.  We’ve enjoyed the sprinkler, watered the plants, weeded the garden and fed the weeds to Boots and Peanut, met and fed all the animals, hunted for eggs, checked out the pasture maze and looked for frogs and tadpoles in the pond!   We’ve only just begun.  Soon we’ll be out on the paddleboat feeding the fish!  Have a wonderful holiday weekend.
