Welcome to the Wednesday Wow!

This week have the children assist in baking a dessert. Young children learn best while participating in an activity. While the child is stirring ask a question such as what do you think will happen if we add more flour to the batter? and see what they say. Finish up by enjoying the dessert and reading a book together!

Welcome to the Wednesday Wow!

This week ask the children to think of and name an animal that moves fast. This provides a perfect opportunity to learn more about the animal that they name by visiting the library and checking out a book on the animal.
