Letter Bb week

There is fun to be had at Little Friends Discovery Place!
Yes, I named my preschool/daycare.
Admittedly, I have had several people lately ask how I can “do it all”,
with homeschooling, childcare, and doing a preschool co op in my home.
My response?  “Are you kidding?  I get to play all day!”
All kidding aside, I do believe it is a matter of attitude.
Simply said, I enjoy what I do.

BEES

Honeycomb cereal to make a honey comb;
pretty fitting, right?

Next we tossed “pollen” into the honeycomb.
Admittedly, this was a late-night, last-minute idea
that just happened to be a success.

Then we played pin-the-bee on the hive.

We completed our BEE activities by singing
“I’m bringing home a baby bumblebee”

I think the COOL (unphotographed) part was that we actually had captured a bee in a jar for our lesson time.  Of course we set it free when we were done.
Also, netflix has a fun Magic School Bus In a Bee Hive episode that complimented our lesson for this day.

BIRDS

For story time we read “Are you My Mother?” by Dr Seuss

We made paper bag bird puppets, as well as pinecone bird feeders.

Our snack was to make a bird’s nest out of pretzels,
then lay the “eggs” (grapes) on the nest.

The kids really enjoyed playing with the bird seeds

which unintentionally became a really cool sensory bin,
bare feet and all!

Yeah, Bb week was pretty successful!
