    The Great Outdoors



    Songs, Books, and Stories

    Special Activities


    Many animals live outdoors.

    “Grey Squirrel”

    Baby Animals

     We will look for animals on campus such as birds, rabbits, and squirrels and tally how many we find.


    We can explore many things in nature when we are outside.

    I Love You Sun, I Love You Moon
    “You Are My Sunshine”

    We will collect items from nature and use them to make a collage.




    We will go on a field trip to play at Weigent Park and we will taste ice cream at Ranison’s Store.


    Trees, flowers, plants and grass are growing outside.

    In the Tall, Tall Grass

    Wilaby Walaby Woo, A Flower Sat On You

    We will revisit our special tree and surrounding area to see how much everything has grown.


    We can see the clouds and the sun in the sky.

    It Looked Like Spilt Milk

    “Mr. Sun”

    We will lie on our backs and watch things in the sky.

    Changes to the Environment

    The dramatic play area will feature housekeeping.  For art we will use sidewalk chalk and for sensory play we will blow and chase bubbles.  We will use sensory blocks in the construction area and stringing beads will be available for fine motor play.  For large motor play we will climb hills and roll down them.
