Summertime is upon us and that means ourthemes for the month will go along with summer-time fun. We will start off with celebrating the4th of July. We will get to make a red, white, andblue wreath, a red, white and blue tree, and a 4thof July hat. In our Dramatic Play we will have ared, white and blue picnic set up. In our sciencetable we will have water with July 4th confettiand red, white and blue shaving cream bags tosquish around.During our second week we will be talking aboutnature. For art we would like to do pinecone art.If you can help with bringing in a pinecone for us,that would be great. We will be talking about theplants and trees that grow in nature. We will alsotalk about some of the animals that we don’tusually talk about, like coyotes, squirrels, andchipmunks. We won’t forget to talk about riversand ponds too. This will lead us into our nextweek of fishing. Some people fish in rivers, lakes,ponds and the ocean. Our Dramatic play will beset up for us to go fishing everyday. We will haveour own pond set up, fishing poles and of coursefish we can catch. For art we will be making fish,fishing poles and our own fishing scene. In ourscience table we will have fish nets and fishes totry to catch. If you can help out with the fishnets (small ones like you find at the pet store),that would be great. Fishing will take us intocamping. Which go hand in hand. What is campingwithout fishing? Of course in our Dramatic playarea we will have our own camping trip. If you canhelp out with letting us borrow sleeping bags youmay have that would be great. And we will get tomake our own campfire to put our sleeping bagsaround. I don’t think anyone goes camping withoutmaking smores and neither will we. One day dur-ing this week we will make smores for art andthen get to make smores for snack.During this month we will be having a lot of waterplay so please dress your child in clothes youdon’t mind them getting wet in. Please make sure your child has extra clothes in their cubby just incase they need to be changed. We will have awater day this month-I will let you know gettingcloser to the date I choose. We will have twopicnic days: July 10th and July 25th. Please re-member no heat ups on these two days.
Have a safe July 4th and enjoy thefireworks.
