🍂 Fall Counting 🍁

.
I'm totally in the autumn spirit even though it's very warm outside! We reused the coloured chickpeas today and worked on some counting

.
These gorgeous flashcards are from @greenurbanmama and are available in the fall Montessori bundle. It's still on sale for the rest of the weekend if you're interested! I have a link in my bio

Can we pleeeeease start our apple unit?!?! .
.
The kids saw me prepping next week’s unit and got so excited. This is their absolute favorite sensory bin of the year. We upgraded from foil to to aluminum pans this year (trust me, it’s worth it to “splurge” here), and each kid got their own bin. They love them that much. (And Momma can’t handle the fighting. 😂)
.
.
We love our sensory bins and this one allows for dramatic play, cooking, scooping, and smells Ahhhmazing!
.
.
Stay tuned for more apple activities to celebrate Johnny Appleseed’s birthday later this week!

You know SPOOKLEY? 🎃There's an adorable story about him, he's a square pumpkin. If you can't find the actual book, you can always play the YouTube video that reads it! We made square pumpkins of our own and embraced being different, like our friend Spookley. 😊 🧡🖤🧡

👋 Did you catch yesterday's post on letter matching with alphabet rocks? One more thing you can do with alphabet rocks is use them to spell out your child's name. Practice reading and spelling your child's name together. They'll get a huge kick out of being able to read their name, and you'll feel like you actually managed to teach them something for once. 🤪

It’s #scienceonsaturdays and this week’s theme is Weather!⁣
⁣
The weather app on our smart phones is something we use every day but probably don’t think much about ( I know I don’t!)⁣ We decided to learn more about weather prediction and the Computer Scientist pioneers who predicted weather mathematically in the early 1950’s using a 150 foot Computer!
⁣
I talked to O about how weather is predicted now. We can calculate what the weather will be tomorrow and weeks away by collecting as much data about the state of the atmosphere by the use of satellites and analyzing that data to come up with a prediction.⁣
⁣
But during the mid-century the idea of weather prediction seemed near impossible. ⁣
In the spring of 1950, a team of scientists including 6 women used the ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer) which was the world’s most powerful computer at the time, to numerically predict weather 24 hours and 48 hours later.⁣
⁣
They spent years developing equations that represent various weather conditions and fed that data into the ENIAC to create predictions. It was a huge break through at the time that would positively affect air travel, crop growth, and many other aspects of life at the time!⁣
⁣
⁣
O and I made our own ENIAC weather predicting machine by using a box with alligator clips. We made weather cards together, predicted what the weather would be in 1 day and in 2 days and clipped the cards onto our machine! ⁣
⁣
⁣
Next week’s theme is Senses! For more Weather based activities, check ⁣

Cooking is one of those low effort high reward activities to do with the kids. Why not make it dual purpose and get some alphabet and name recognition in too? Get the recipe and instructions on the blog. https://www.myldspreschool.com/2103-2/

Sprouting Beans—
While we were learning about seeds we did some bean sprouting. We put a damp sheet of kitchen towel at the bottom of an empty glass jar and placed two dried beans on top. Within a few days the girls were excited to observe that the sprouting had begun. Using a glass jar makes it easy to monitor the development of the roots— which isn’t possible with most plants.

We also planted flower seeds in soil. This exercise was less successful. We saw no growth whatsoever. Perhaps we stumbled upon a pack of dud seeds.

Anyone have an Osmo? My girls are loving it! Yes, you can download learning apps, but I love that this is hands on - it comes with letter tiles -AND you can download multiple word packs. ((Swipe to see them {K and 1st} competing in a spelling game.) It also has a math/number game with number tiles, a super fun interactive drawing game, shape game with hands-on tangrams, and another one great for problem solving.  We will be purchasing a couple add-on games for Christmas this year! (I’ll show more in my story and link the system in my profile!)

My girl loves to paint. She gets out her watercolors and her paper every day and asks for water. Then she just paints whatever she wants!🎨

Are you totally obsessed with peg dolls like I am? Not only are they made out of solid wood, they are the perfect size for little hands. My Etsy account is littered with different ones that I have favorite'd across several stores (I'm looking at you, Chickadees!). However, I wanted to see if I could make Vicky a colorful peg army.⠀
⠀
This project has been in the works for over five months. Once I saw examples of what I wanted, I scoured Ali Express and ordered a lot from China. I'll put the link in my blog, so y'all can feed your obsession like me. Once they arrived in July, I sat around for a few months, trying to figure out how to best paint them. Then I saw fellow Miami girl, @mothercould put up a video on how to dye them with food color. Shazam! She'd figured it out!⠀
⠀
I went and bought the most economical gel food dye in about a dozen colors. I mixed it with water in red solo cups (we're permanently ready for a kegger apparently) and let them sit for about five minutes. Once they'd achieved the hue I was going for, I placed them on a baking sheet that I had covered with parchment. I placed them all in our laundry room....and waited. A full day. You should do the same. I know it's pretty dry after a few hours, but if you want it to last, let it set.⠀
⠀
I realized, after the fact, that I needed to seal them with something. Otherwise, my mouthy toddler will turn whatever color she happens to be chewing on. My husband brought home a can of polyurethane and I spent a hot few hours outside, gingerly painting each one. Then I let it sit outside for 24 hours since polyurethane is toxic while it is drying. It emits off-gassing which can be very toxic and dangerous. However, when it is dry it is absolutely safe. ⠀
⠀
Five months later... I have the rainbow peg doll army that I have always wanted. I mean...that Vicky has always wanted! 😂
