Below you’ll find links to the plans we’ll be using this month for Tot School. As always, these great plans come from my friend, Liz, at Twinsane in the Membrane. I can’t believe we only have two months left with this great curriculum! (If you didn’t get in on the beginning, you could always scroll back and start with her first posts. I would wait and start up in the fall so that the themes match the seasons, though.)
And here are the well-laid out objectives!
I also want to do a little more with plants because I loved this unit when I taught kindergarten, and Fairley already seemed to interested in plants when I pulled out my old plant unit books. Here are a few ideas:
-Planting a lima bean seed and watching it grow.
-Making a picture diagramming the parts of a flower.
-Learning about osmosis by dyeing water and placing celery in it. (The leaves will change to be that color.)
-Maybe asking the gardener at the end of our block if she could help a little in the community garden?
-Or maybe visiting the Brooklyn Botanic Garden?
