What will you plant in your garden this spring?

Monday

Morning
Monday Fun-day with Jax & Sarah

Afternoon
Pretend play
*Sing this song to the tune of “Farmer in the Dell” and act out each verse:

It’s time to plant the seeds,
It’s time to plant the seeds,
Heigh-ho, the derry-o,
It’s time to plant the seeds.

Other verses:

The warm sun shines all day…

The rain comes gently down…

The plant pops through the soil…

We need to water and hoe…

We help our garden grow…

3:00-4:00 – outside
4:00-5:00 – Music & Movement

Tuesday

Morning

Fun with numbers
*We will play Hi Ho Cherry-O, possibly replacing some of the fruit pieces with seeds.

Afternoon
Language/pre-reading
*We will create sequence cards (or a sequence book). The first card will be a seed (or a picture of a seed) with the word “seed.” The second picture will be of dirt or someone planting the seed (we will cut pictures out of magazines) with something like “I plant a seed.” The third picture will be a flower or vegetable along with its name (“carrot” or “rose”).

3:00-4:00 – outside
4:00-5:00 – Music & Movement

Wednesday

Morning
Wacky Wednesdays with Molly & Jenny

Afternoon
Exploring our World
*We will buy and examine different seeds, comparing them to the vegetables they will eventually grow into.

3:00-4:00 – outside
4:00-5:00 – Music & Movement

Thursday

Morning
Science Adventures
*We will plant starter plants and watch them grow over the coming weeks before we move them to the garden.

Afternoon
Library & grocery store
*I have a hold on “The Carrot Seed” by Ruth Krauss, and “A Seed Grows: My First Look at a Plant’s Life Cycle” by Pamela Hickman.

3:00-4:00 – outside
4:00-5:00 – Music & Movement

Friday

Morning
Kid Swapping with Melody

    Oh, I’m so jealous. We had a garden last year, and now we don’t. I still want to replant some of my indoor and balcony plants, but I’m feeling a little depressed about it. I want to include Mikko in the fun (mess), though, so maybe I’ll have to get over it and get seeding! :)

      I can’t wait to do all the fun “dirt prep”… oh… yes. How I’ve missed it.

      Has it only been a year since the last time I got to play in the dirt? Oh. It seems like longer, I miss it so.
