I trully encourage all of you to check this link out to explain this a lot better.
This is my family, I am the one next to my brother (the only man in the picture) lol
then comes my Mother, my Sister (the one who has Lupus), and then my other Sister.
She has sent me a link to help her in a Walk to Stop Lupus but I thought is worth the try
that even though some of us can not be in the walk maybe you has a few dollars to spare and help
Stop this fight. If you do THANK YOU SO MUCH FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART
GOD WILL BLESS YOU FOR ALL YOUR KINDNESS :)

This week we covered life cycles
starting with the life cycle of a Plant
I try to do everything hands on so we took some seeds and plant them in litlle plastic cups with soil and water, talking with the kids about what the seed needs to grow, soil, water, and the sun.
Then we moved on to the life cycle of the chicken
reading this book:
and showing the kids some pictures of their life cycle.
After that we did the life cycle of a frog,
they were soooo interested in this one,
I am pretty amazed!
and finally we made a frog craft
as you can see I gave each child a paper plate
but we encountered a problem,
we didn't have green paint for the frogs,
so I took the opportunity and taught them how to mix colors to make green
after the excitment of mixing colors
and making green
we went on to color our paper plates
to make a frog
We added some circles that the kids drew and cut themselves for the eyes
and I ask them to choose what color construction paper the wanted for the tongue
and on they went to cut a strip of paper for it.
One of the kids had the initiative to curl the paper by hand
which was a very clever idea,
so here is our finish product
I hope you enjoy my ideas :)

Here is our PreK bulletin board for Spring
My kids were so excited to help.
It was a group project
One child painted a paper plate yellow for the sun then I cut it in four parts
another child cut the yellow strips out of construction paper for the sun rays
another child did the red hand print for the tulip
and someone else helped paint green for the stem and leaves
a few of the kids cut green construction paper for the grass
(great scissors skill practice)
another child drew and cut plain white paper for the cloud
the only thing missing is the butterfly but we didn't have a coffee filter to make it :(
but as soon as I get a hold of one we'll add it to the bulletin board.
Thanks for staying with me and reading my blog :)
Spring kisses :)

Here is a list of books from Carson-Dellosa Publishing for Grades 1 - 3
And here are some activities to do with your child after reading these books:
Go on a wal to collect leaves with your child, then use them to make an autumn leaf booklet.
Have your child clap out the rhythm of the story as you read it aloud.
Have your child predict what will happen each time Foolish Fernando tries to outwit Old Juana.
Challenge your child to find the cat hidden on each page of the story.
Ask your child to name something he wishes he could do but is too young. Then, have him name some things he can do well already.
Have a harvest party with your child, complete with apple juice and cookies.
Take turns with your child naming different bones and pointing out where they are located.
