Around the time I’m preparing lunch for the kids, The View comes on ABC (perfect name for a network when the alphabet is being practiced daily on my end.) Speaking of, I was only too happy to discover that Schoolhouse Rock! (a beloved children’s program for many of us while growing up) is part of the ABC App Throwback collection!
But, I digress. I simply appreciate daytime talk shows because even though I’m making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I can still feel like I’m seated at the Grown-Ups table when they go live. So, until I return to the business of early learning, I’m just…
Turns out that June is just loaded with a variety of themes: Flag Day, Father’s Day, first day of Summer and in sweet succession, wait for it… a day for the Pineapple.
Yes and yum!
Admittedly, I didn’t know all that much about pineapples except that they’re readily available in tropical places and how wonderful they taste (by the way here’s a smoothie recipe and another with Piña Coladas for us (aka Bacardi.)
But, back to the kids. So, with a little bit of research I was able to piece together a slide show to include some simple facts, images and even a recipe for us to enjoy (thanks social media!) By the way, these early learning presentations are so much fun to create and share with fellow parents and caregivers!
Maybe while you’re reading this you’re stuck in a waiting area with a child who’s starting to become impatient. If so, you should be able to distract the little fellow or princess by bringing up the fact that there’s such a thing as Pineapple Day. Then, view our slide show found here (that also contains printable coloring page for later, if they’re interested.)
If you didn’t have anything prepared for tomorrow, enjoy this lesson theme too!
It’s not just the little ones that want to run under the covers during a thunderstorm. It’s pretty scary for everybody, even when you’re indoors.
Trying your best to calm a child through one isn’t always easy and even more difficult if you also happen to lose power which can happen sometimes.
We’re always talking about the weather, but it was time to go beyond the temperature and what to carry with us when its raining. Mainly because I wasn’t able to explain this intimidating force of nature to myself, much less a child. I think we all know at the very least, that it’s dangerous to be outside at the time.
I knew thunder was loud and frightening, but does it always follow that flash of lightning? Thankfully, the Weather Wiz Kids had us covered, like an umbrella. You’ll find the answer to the question under Thunderstorms along with the causes, patterns and helpful safety tips. We also learned a new math game we can play during the next storm to find out how far away it is from us.
