I think this will be a long posting. :)

I haven't added a post since April 8th... Wow... Well in my defense..... I was sick with the flu for a week and boy did that really wipe me out.

We had a great time during our Easter Party at child care. The children graphed jelly beans. They got a small cup full of jelly beans, spearated them, and then counted each other and graphed. They did an awesome job. We also colored Easter Eggs and had a Easter Egg hunt. The kids ended up finding a bunch of candy... :)
I'm currently adding pictures to photobucket from pour Easter Party. There are a lot. I'll send an e-mail when I have them all added.

We celebrated Earth day by painting a Happy Earth Face. I think these turned out so adorable. Again, the kids did an awesome job. We learned about recyling, and we graph the items we recycled during the day. The kids are continuing with the recyling this week, wanted to squish the milk containers, and place them in the recyling bags. I love it.
This week and next week, our theme will be Mother's Day. I have a few projects I want to get done, and I don't want the kids to feel rushed. Mother's Day is a great theme.

~Boo Boo Bunnies~

Today we made Boo Boo Bunnies. They turned out adorable. The idea is if a child gets a boo boo, you can stick an ice cube in the back side. The child will then hold it against their boo boo.
We stuck an egg in the back. The children loved them...
I had to share a picture of the bunch!

Travel Tots~

Wednesday we had Travel Tots come in the morning.... The kids "traveled" to Switzerland where they learned that the people that live in Switzerland speak French, German, Italian and Romansh. The mountains are called Alps. Clocks and watches are made in Switzerland. Animals that live in Switzerland include - goats, foxes, chamois, marmots, woodpeckers, blue jays and trout and Salmon. Fondue is a fun way to eat, and they children had a pretend fondue.

Milk comes from both cows and goats, and we use it to make cheese and butter!
We also learned what a compass was and that even though it looks like a watch, a compass is different. A compass shows us what direction we are going in where a watch shows us the time.

We got to put a Switzerland sticker in our passports. Travel Tots will be back on the 22th for a Spanish lesson. I'm sure the kids can't wait. :)
