In a year there is 4 seasons and 12 months

DSCF7912I haven’t posted for a while, I guess I got caught in the “Christmas rush”. I totally forgot to take pictures of what we did, ornaments, cards, candy cane sleigh, ginger bread village etc. I only took a few of our Christmas tree.DSCF7913

This week was about learning what is a year or what is in a year. Something hard for children to understand. I am pretty sure the pre-schoolers now know the seasons and I can say they have been introduce to the 12 months.DSCF7948

Above it was the season’s name in English, Spanish and French cover with paint. I decided to associate a color with each season to help them learn. I had a video about the seasons ( baby Einstein) showing Monet’s paintings  and  photos of landscapes with the seasonal change in time-laps.

Down here it looks like a mess but in fact it’s the free-art table where kids get to choose what they want to craft and with what they want to work. It was a lot of fun.

Songs are always a great learning tool and we used this one for the seasons and made our own for the 12 months.
