Last week we learned all about hunting dogs!! Thank you to Ted and Zadak Miller who taught us all about hunting dogs with their dog, Lily. We learned about what a hunting dog’s job is and how Ted learned to train his dogs(hint hint, he went to the library and checked out a book).
The kids enjoyed seeing Lily work and Lily enjoyed all the tummy rubs afterward! 🐕
Our summer reading program is still going strong and will continue through August 5th! #TailsAndTales
Have you heard of the SUMMER SLIDE? It may sound fun (who doesn't love slides?!) but it's actually a serious problem for our little ones. When kids aren't in school or participating in learning activities during the summer, they can lose some of the academic gains they made during the previous year. That's why it's called the SUMMER SLIDE…because our little ones “slide backwards" in their skills. Now, there's no reason to panic or force our preschoolers to do a million worksheets or drill them with flashcards to make sure this doesn't happen. Kids don't learn best that way! But it DOES mean that we should be intentionally setting up opportunities for our kids to learn through play during the summer, just like we do all year long.- Erin
