Happy Earth Day!  Early Childhood learned the importance of recycling, reusing, and reducing to keep our earth clean and beautiful.  We learned how to sort trash into items to be recycled, and also enjoyed a virtual tour of what happens to cardboard and plastic at a recycling plant!  Other activities this week included creating pictures of the earth, reusable art projects, and planting grass seed!
Also this week, we’ve added Montessori bead activities to the distance site for children to explore.  While many of our math and language lessons are individualized through personalized work, this is one example of a material that can be used by any child and extended to meet interests and abilities.
