The first activities I have to share with you are sequencing activities. The first activity focuses walking a puppet across calendar months while saying the months of the year. The second focuses on placing the months of the year in order. Sequencing Activities While the sequencing activities are in a set, you can have your children do just one or both of them.
Kristen Smith We are down to 8 days left of school. Those days include 5 full days and three half days… amongst those days we will experience field day, our class party, the school wide awards ceremony, and our annual last day of school bounce house party.
One of the first things that we learned were the different zones in the ocean.
To create the bottles, I filled my squeeze bottles with vegetable oil and dumped out half of the water in each bottle. Then my students added food coloring to the left over water in their bottles and then filled the rest of the bottle with the oil. Using the squeeze bottle made it easy for the children to add the oil to their bottles.
Once the bottle was filled, I sealed the bottle tightly and let the students explore with them. They shook the bottles with all their might and then discovered something miraculous! As the oil and water settled in the bottles, they were able to point out the three different layers of the ocean!
The top layer was the lightest and smallest area and therefore was the sunlit zone. The next layer was a little bit darker in color.
My students easily recognized it as the twilight zone. The last layer was the darkest layer and my students eagerly observed and named it the midnight zone! The past week we focused on crustaceans. We were learning all about exoskeletons and how these animals have to molt in order to get bigger.
I had gone to my local grocery store and asked them if I could use some lobsters to help make my ocean theme come to life for my students. Luckily, the manager of the seafood department loves to help out in classrooms and gave me a great deal on two lobsters for my classroom! On Tuesday, my students arrived as usual, however, our morning work was very atypical.
For morning work that day I told them that I had some creatures for them to explore.
We reviewed what we had learned the day before and my students had the opportunity to guess who our visitors were going to be for the day. I did not allow my students to HOLD the lobsters, however, I did let them touch their tails and I showed them the different parts of the lobsters.
I was able to show them up close the lobsters pinching claw, crushing claw, legs, antennae, exoskeleton, mouth, and tail. They observed them and asked questions about them for 45 minutes!Altarnun is an attractive village, along with Blisland the most interesting on this part of Bodmin Moor.

It’s a tricky business, choosing appropriate read aloud chapter books for preschoolers. This is especially true for your three year old, since — as every parent all knows — there is a world of difference between “just three” and “almost four”.
On behalf of her 14 grandchildren (of whom I am the eldest) I wrote a eulogy to celebrate her amazing life. My goal was to focus on the things that we all remembered about her while we grew up in her home.
