Wow--their attention spans are really expanding! They LOVED learning about the Earth--we focused on seeds and seasons. I couldn't believe how much they loved sitting on their mats and singing songs about the Earth, doing finger plays, listening to flannel board stories and participating in riddle games. They had a visit from Joy Boy and showed him what apple seeds look like.
All four of them loved making applesauce--I included a picture of Annika, Abby, and Ava helping make homemade applesauce with a food press, and one of Imani enjoying it! We also planted bean seeds and apple seeds in little cups, which they all loved as well (especially the watering part). They also enjoyed constructing their very own bean and seed collages with glue and construction paper.
