The peas we planted inside have sprouted! We are amazed each day to see how much they have grown.
|On Monday, the first few tiny sprouts had emerged|
|Every day we could see that the sprouts had grown taller and new ones emerged|
|Look what's growing in our garden!|
This week we also filled our raised garden beds with soil so we can start planting in them next week!
|Everyone contributed to the project|
We learn this poem as a song with motions
A Little Seed
By Mabel Watts
A little seed for me to sow
A little earth to make it grow
A little hole, a little pat
A little wish, and that is that.
A little sun, a little shower,
A little while… and then, a flower!
Language Tip of the week:
“What do you think?
Ask your child for their opinions & ideas in your conversations. When they ask a question, sometimes you can respond with “What do you think?” instead of answering right away. (e.g., questions like, “Where is that dog going?” or “Why do I have to wear a hat?”) You can also ask them what they think the weather will be outside, what they enjoyed doing that day, anything!
Benefits for your child:
- build their mental comprehension and analytical skills,
- practice speaking and explaining.
You’ll also learn about your child’s perceptions of the world and what is important to them.
