Garden Visitors

Sunday, May 16, 2021

Last week we learned about Garden Visitors. Some Garden Visitors we learned about are the Mole, Crow, Rabbit, Toad and Bee. The children learned that rabbits and moles can be a pest in the garden because they eat crops and dig holes. They learned that bees are helpful because they produce honey and they pollinate food crops.

During Circle Time we discussed the differences between a Frog and a Toad. 
The children took a vote and decided that they liked Frogs better than Toads.

They liked that a Frog lives in the water and has a long tongue. I explained to the children that toads are nocturnal which means they sleep during the day and come out to find food at night 

My Pet Toad

The children were excited to make a Pet Toad. The children colored the bowl brown. Then glued on the brown Pom Poms and Wiggly Eyes. Then the legs were attached. Some chose to draw a face and add split peas for bumps.
They were the cutest Toads ever!  🐸 ❤️

Listen Like a Rabbit 

The children learned that Rabbits mostly live underground in burrows or holes. They have really big ears that help them listen. Rabbits are very quiet, especially when they are scared, when they are hungry and tired. They love to eat vegetables and grass. I reminded the children of the story Peter Rabbit. They really love this story.

The children made rabbit masks with really big rabbit ears.
The children put the masks on and pretended to be rabbits listening for sounds.

Theme RelatedGames For Learning 
The children love ❤️ the independence of playing these learning games together. I will play the games together with them a few times and then they are ready to take turns and play them with their friends.
We love these games!!!! They are so fun!
