An Enchanted Childhood~ Daycare: February 28th-March 4th

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.

The theme this week was Hibernating Animals.  We read the following books throughout the week: The Animals' Winter Sleep, Animals in Winter, and Under the Snow.

We made snakes!

We painted a bear in his den!

We made handprint bats!

And pretended to be bats sleeping upside-down in a cave!
