“Welcome to The Children’s Spot Nature School!”
By The Children’s Spot
This summer we are hosting a nature based summer program for all of our students. It is based on the study of animals. Our studies will include farm animals, animals specific to Texas, birds, forest animals, circus animals, marsupials, desert animals, night animals, ocean animals, reptiles, pets, and working animals. We will also study recycling, cloud investigating, sensory discovery walks, build a Nature Stand and sell healthy products, make bird feeders, outdoor scavenger hunts, navigate with a map, cooking classes, study habitats, study climate change, prepare to use a compass, find out how to read a thermometer, and clean up and take care of our community.
The Children's Spot will make sure our children include science, art, dramatic play, literature, block play, music and movement, math/manipulatives, technology, circle time, transitions, and outside games and activities with our curriculum. Your children are not too young to learn this…
Our nature-based curriculum will be fun but we can and will get D-I-R-T-Y! We are making mud pies, directing currents in water, cooking some delicious but healthy snacks, gathering sticks, catching bugs, learning parts of a tree, making a compost pile, bobbing for apples, and ALL children will play in the water, maybe even the mud. This is truly an adventurous summer for us at The Children’s Spot!
