Planning for next month

Wednesday is my day off work and I'm using it to do some planning for May. Yes I'm already planning for May. I like to be a month ahead so at the beginning of the month I can post an activities calendar for the families. It includes days the centre may be closed, cooking activities, fieldtrips, going to the library, anything extra.

May's focus will be about Dinosaurs. I believe that this topic will always be an interest to children. I've been an Early Childhood Educator for over 25 years and the theme still comes up every year.

This past weekend I spent sometime shopping at thrift stores for dinos and games and also to the teacher store. Lucky to find some treasures the kids
will enjoy.

Today I need to go to the local museum and plan a visit to start off this theme.
