An Enchanted Childhood~ Daycare:Week 10

We have been asked many times to write up our "lesson plans" so others could use them.  Honestly, we just spend a little time thinking about how we want the "school year" to look and go from there.  We wing-it a lot, doing impromptu things that add to our plans.  I am always amazed that anyone would think what we do is worthy of writing down for others to read, but here it goes!

This year, we are doing "Childhood Classics"--reading great children's books--you know, the kind every child should get to know, and then doing little activities to go with it.

This week, we studied birds, in preparation of the winter birds returning to our birdfeeders.  We read Outside the Window (written by West Virginian Anna Egan Smucker) and Backyard Birds of the Winter.  We also read Are You my Mother !!

Some of CreativeTime activities included painting birdfeeders, coloring various "winter time" birds, and making binoculars to birdwatch!
