We have been discussing Spring! The children have been sharing things that they have seen outside that tell us Spring is here…although you wouldn’t believe it the last couple days! lol Mrs Oakley read a book that mentioned pussy willows; the children said they didn’t know what they were…so Wednesday I brought in some pussy willow branches. During circle I read a poem (pic attached) and then asked if they would like to feel spring on their cheek!? The children closed their eyes and I gently rubbed the fuzzies on their cheeks-they expained that it felt nice, fuzzy, soft, smooth, ticklish-lots of great words!!! On the art table later there was a finger painting activity where children were welcome to draw branches and finger paint on the fuzzy bits. It was also expanded to the paint easel. When you are out about discuss the changes you see with your child and ask them what they see that tell us Spring is here!
