Here's the weather worksheet I made for Bella (when she was 3) to teach her about weather and she did an awesome job coloring the pictures and writing the types of weather in it. We talked about different seasons and what kinds of weather they bring. I haven't done the daily temperature log with her, but she's about ready now, so we will definitely be doing it. (Is 4 too young for weather charts? :))

- Teaching your preschoolers to write is fun, but can be frustrating, too. When I started teaching Bella at 2 years old, some days I felt like she'll never draw a straight line or like there will not come a day when she'll recognize the letters I am showing to her. Usually, we practiced a different letter each day in no particular order. I would make dotted letters and she would trace them. If she could trace 3 out of 5 letters, I counted that as a victory. As I look back, I realize that at 2, kids still have plenty ...more

The "I know my states" worksheet features an outline of the map of the USA and ask students to color the map (find a different color for each state). It is meant for elementary school students and is a great way to assess they US geography knowledge.

- Our science and art unit for the day was on rockets and space.
We read Roaring Rockets by Tony Mitton and Ant Parker and Space Exploration Kids by Donald Sullivan and then we did a footprint rocket craft.
We had so much fun :). Hope you enjoy this activity, too.
We used a stamp to ink her foot.
And stamped it on a piece of paper.
Glued on the parts of the rocket.
Traced "R" for rocket.
And added the nice cloud of burning gas: Blast Off! more
When I teach Bella, I try to offer activities that help develop different knowledge and skills and cover multiple subjects. When I was putting together her curriculum for this week, I found this great kids activity on the British History Museum website. If you've never been there, you should check it out. They have a wonderful kids section.
Anyway, Bella loves all things princess, so when I saw the museum's take on the ancient crown found in a tomb in Afghanistan, I was very excited. Their website has very good instructions, detailing how to make the replica.
The story is that the ...more
We got this lovely apron at Michael's and for a few months I wasn't sure how I was going to personalize it for Bella.
Saw the acrylic paint stamping idea on Pinterest and figured it would be something neat to try with her.
So I cut out a heart shape and Bella dabbed the pencil eraser into acrylic paint and stamped along the heart shape.
Of course, it's a little messy, but aren't all preschool crafts? :)
I'm thinking of adding an applique with her name on it above the heart.
Sorry about the low quality pics, I took them with my tablet. more
- Valentine's Day is coming up and I wanted to make some sort of a decoration, something cute. Since I gave up on doing crafts uninterrupted 4 yeas ago (when Bella was born), I had to come up with an idea that she could be involved in, on top of the Valentine's Day paper crafts that we've already done as part of her art studies.
So I decided on a button heart wall art to match the colors of her "Owl room."
I painted a plain picture frame that we got from Hobby Lobby with an acrylic gloss paint in "Fresh Lime."
While I ...more
- In my tireless effort to give Bella as many opportunities to learn as possible, I decided to take her to an art museum back in October (yeah, yeah, late post - we've been busy). It is a pretty large museum for our size town and is built around the bird theme. When I was thinking about taking her, I figured we would just walk around the sculpture garden. (Now Bella wants garden sculptures.)I really didn't think she would enjoy the indoor exhibits. Little did I know! This child looked at just about every painting and sculpture. In each room, she ...more
- Those of you who visit here often have surely noticed that we haven't added anything for quite some time. We apologize and hope that you continue visiting RainbowTreeKids. It has just been such a busy summer! Jay got a new job and we moved 4 hours away to a different state, all while I was writing my Capstone and preparing to graduate. Between all of the associated running, the packing, the unpacking (which by the way is still underway) and the schooling, we have put all of the RainbowTreeKids projects on pause. Rest assured, things will be back to normal ...more
