Green Room: Session 1/week 3& 4

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 July 4 for the holiday weekend!!!!

 

  • 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 3:  June 19- 23   Butterfly beauties

Our week will be spent exploring the life cycle of butterflies, observing our caterpillars in the green room, reading butterfly books, singing butterfly poems and of course making butterfly art!

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

 

Week 4:  June 26-30:   23    You scream, I scream, We all scream for Ice Cream

In honor of National Dairy Month, we will exploring ice cream this week.  We’ll practice counting with sprinkles, cut out our ages in scoops, play with ice cream leggos, and “make” ice cream with a secret ingredient!

Our chores this week are:  recycling and cats .

 

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.

Cheers,

Mrs Waldron

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Green Room: session 1; week 1&2

The Green Room Summer   J   2017

 

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, go for a paddle boat ride or even a horse ride.

Reminders:

  • Your child will need to bring daily, the following items packed in their backpack: towel (this does not need to be a full size beach towel; a bath towel works fine), 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!)
  • We are excited to announce that the pond has it’s very own paddleboat! Permission slips will be sent home so that your child can participate in this activity.  (With life jackets of course!)
  • Check the Kinderfarm website for more notes and reminders.

Week 1:  June 5-9:  Let’s get Oriented & Strawberry Fun

Mon and Tues:  We’ll be getting to know the classroom, each other and what the boundaries are.  Games will make this fun.

Wed, Thurs, Fri: Strawberries have so much potential!  Strawberries will be our muse as we work on one to one correspondence, subtraction skills through song, and of course eating strawberries.  Friday we’ll be baking with strawberries.  Ask your kinderfarmer what they thought of our baking project!

Our chores this week are:  recycling, cats and lamb.

 

Week 2:  June 12-16:  Flags, flags, flags!

We will be focusing on our country’s flag as June 14th is Flag Day.  We’ll be creating flags out of different materials and creating a flag snack on Thursday.  Following directions, attending and staying on task, along with scissor and glue skills will be our focus.

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

 

Summer is a wonderful time to explore and enjoy Kinderfarm, and I’m really looking forward to sharing this experience with your child.  There’s always something going on and we’ll be spending a lot of time outside looking for it!  Right now the pond is full of bullfrog tadpoles that are the size of golf ball!   Also at the pond, are a variety of adult frogs that croak, jump and swim to everyone’s delight.  My plan is to get the kiddos in the paddle boat so that we may observe the tadpoles in action.

Cheers,

Mrs S. Waldron
