It’s a Small World

We’ve been busy with lots of fun activities, but I was sick for 2-3 weeks of February so I’m just getting caught up!

In February our theme was “It’s a Small World” using the Mother Goose Time curriculum. Many of the materials came from the theme kit.

Here’s a highlight of our month:

Passport sticker books {from Oriental Trading}:

Graphing where we’d like to visit.  To make these places more real, (although we learned more about them throughout the month) I look up videos on YouTube or National Geographic. My group was really intrigued with the Grand Canyon.graphing2

Flags of all nations {from Oriental Trading}: the flags are available every day for the kids to play with as they like but somehow we’ve gotten into the “marching song” where we march with the “Ants Go Marching” song & carry a flag. Some of the kids have a favorite flag they choose. A 4-year-old calls one the “soda flag”. Can you see why? : )

I used a yogurt container {that I decoupaged with Scholastic flyers a long time ago} with a lid & pushed the sticks through the top to hold the flags.
