** Welcome to May!  And Welcome Spring!!!
————————————————————

This month, we are highlighting a lot of fun ways that you – with your children – can add some green to your home.  Let us give you some tips and ideas for one of our favorite seasons.
You can grow awesome, juicy tomatoes on your deck or patio this summer.

** Container Gardening
————————————————————
Big veggies, gorgeous flowers…in small spaces.  Easy for kids to plant, tend and observe!

What Can I Grow?
Some vegetables grow very well in containers. It is important to understand how much space the adult plant will require for roots and the plant. A variety of lettuces and spinach can be grown in a long planter box. Peas and beans can also be grown in a planter box. Tomatoes, peppers, carrots and onions can be grown in a deep planter pot.

Read the package instructions for ideal spacing and growth of the plant before choosing a specific variety.

Herbs are also ideal for growing in planters. Basil, Chives and oregano can be planted in a small, shallow container that can be moved inside during the winter to extend the growing season of the plant.

Vegetables that require a lot of space such as corn are not recommended for container gardening. Other limitations may include the amount of light and shade where the container will be placed. Research the varieties of the desired vegetable and choose one that will grow well in the amount of sunlight available and temperature in the local climate.

When do I plant?
When growing from seeds in a container it is recommended to start growing several weeks before the last day of frost is expected. This will allow the seeds to germinate and sprout before they are placed outside. Some seeds can be grown in special seed pots under grow lights and then replanted as seedlings once the weather is warm enough for them to survive. If this is more work than you want to do simply purchase seedlings in the spring and plant them directly outside. T

he benefits of growing from seeds are the large number of choices available to grow. When purchasing seedlings you are limited to those varieties that are available at the local nursery store.

How do I plant?
Follow the instructions included with the seed packet or seedling when it was purchased. It is a good idea to use soil that has a timed fertilizer in it already. Water the soil thoroughly after planting and verify the water drains effectively. Plants will not grow well in sitting water .

Plants growing in a container will need regular watering, perhaps as often as every day if the weather is hot or dry. Check the soil daily by pressing a pencil into the pot to a depth of three inches. If the pencil does not have any soil attached when it is removed the plant should be watered.

Harvest the vegetables as they ripen from the plant. Once fall arrives cover the plants at night to protect them from frost. This will extend the growing season of the plants.

Container gardening is a fun way to grow your own vegetables and herbs in a limited space. It is also an excellent introduction to gardening for someone who doesn’t have the time to take care of a full garden.

** Get Growing…

————————————————————
Gardening teaches kids where food comes from, responsibility and patience.

A great way to get kids involved is to give children their own tools such as rakes, shovels, watering cans, gloves andmud boots. These can be found at the Dollar Store, WalMart, Menards and Home Depot, especially this time of year.

For a neat way to create a garden at home, consider making a theme garden like one of these:

Grow a Pizza:
If you have enough room make your garden into pizza shape (circle)
* Plum tomatoes
* Egg plants
* Zucchini
* Bell Peppers
* Onions
* Garlic
Herbs: basil, rosemary and oregano

Salad Garden:
* Lettuce
* Tomatoes
* Cuccumbers
* Carrots
* Bell Peppers
* Radishes
* Green Onions
* Snap Peas
* Broccoli

Land of the Gaints
* Long pole beans
* Cucuzza squash ( both the beans and squash grow as long baseball bats)
* Super sized pumpkins
* Walking stick cabbages ( which grow with 7 foot tall stems can use the stems in fall for walking sticks)

Grow a Rainbow
* Beets (Chiggia beets candy striped)
* Cauliflower ( comes in varies colors)
* Purple carrots
* Yellow cuccumbers

Flower Garden (Floral Clock)
* Morning Glories open with the sunrise
*Moon flowers blossom in the evening
* Passion flowers seize the day around noon

Pretty Babies (Babysitting tiny vegetables) container gardens
* Baby beets
* Silver dollar squash
* Batwing pumpkins (no bigger than a softball)
* Baby lettuce

At the end of summer have a harvest party with friends and family to show off the veggies that have grown

** Terra Cotta Pot Projects to Make At Home
————————————————————
Looking for a cute project for a end-of-the-year teacher gift or visiting family this summer, try one of the unique projects below!

Terra Cotta Pot Wind Chime

Use three terra cotta pots of different sizes to create a wind chime with kids. Before stringing the pots together to create the wind chime, children can paint the outsides using acrylic paints.

Use a length of twine to tie the pots inside of each other, with the smallest pot at the bottom and the biggest at top.S

tart by making a loop and tying the twine so the finished wind chime will have something to hang from. Threading and tying knots encourages kids’ fine motor skills. Kids thread the largest of the three terra cotta pots onto the string using the hole in the bottom of the pot.

Thread a wooden bead underneath the pot and tie a knot to secure it.

Thread the medium-sized pot onto the twine and situate it so it just touches the bottom of the biggest pot. Thread a bead onto the twine and secure it with a knot. Do the same with the smallest pot. Tie another wooden bead or a bell to the bottom of the twine so that when the terra cotta wind chime blows in the wind it bumps against the side of the smallest pot.

Terra Cotta Pot Birdbath

By turning a terra cotta pots upside down, stacking them on top of each other and using a saucer, a birdbath can be created.

Children can paint the outsides of each 12-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch terra cotta pot–along with a saucer for a 20-inch terra cotta pot–using acrylic paints.

Once the paint has dried, have an adult spray the inside of the saucer with a clear gloss sealant so the water will stay within the birdbath.Kids assemble the birdbath by stacking the terra cotta pots with the 16-inch at the base with the opening of the pot to the ground, then place on the 14-inch pot and last the 12-inch pot. Secure the saucer to the top of the 12-inch pot with extra-strength waterproof glue.

Mosaic

Kids can turn broken bits of other pots and dishes into a mosaic terra cotta flowerpot with the help (http://www.ehow.com/list_6600409_terra-cotta-pot-crafts-kids.html) of some tile grout. Kids can brainstorm an idea or design for the pot and use a pencil to create an outline on the terra cotta pot.

Working slowly. Apply a small amount of the tile grout using a plastic knife and then press the bits of broken china onto the terra cotta pot. Continue working, pressing pieces of china onto the pot with no more than 1/4 of an inch between pieces. Use a damp cloth or sponge to wipe off grout from the embellishments.Sponsored Links

Dirt Cake Recipe (http://gallery.mailchimp.com/8e813a87245e7ca928deb423d/files/Dirt_Cake.pdf)

** Teach Writing…with pudding…
————————————————————
While you are making the dirt cake, occupy little fingers by surrendering some of the pudding for writing practice. On a clean countertop, have your child spread pudding into a puddle with their hands.  Then, have them write their name, your name or any other word they might know.

For kids who hate to practice, they can’t resist learning this way.

** Featuring Ms. Shirley…
————————————————————
Ms. Shirley has been with Child’s Play for 16 years!  She has been in her current role for 3 1/2 years.

Ms. Shirley enjoys bike riding, taking her dog Dakota for a walk, reading, collecting Cherished Teddy Bears and spending time with her family.  In fact, she considers herself an expert in being there for the people she loves.

Ms. Shirley’s favorite color is purple and she loves country / soft rock music.  In fact, she’d love to meet Elvis if she could!   She is most proud of her son Derick, who is in the Navy and her daughter Tiffany, who is a teacher and will be making her a grandma in September!

Ms. Shirley’s favorite thing about Child’s Play is that it’s like an extended family.  She has wonderful co-workers who work together.  She loves the toddler room because all of the teachers in this space work so well together.

Ms. Shirley wishes every parent would know that she is here for the children and she treats them as if they were one of her own.  She really enjoys her job.

Especially at Christmas time – her favorite holiday!  Her favorite dress up day, however, is during football season when she can wear her favorite t-shirt or jersey!

If Ms. Shirley could leave you with one thought it would be to live life to the fullest!

** Featuring Ms. Vicky…
————————————————————
Ms. Vicky is a 2009 Graduate of Lakeshore Technical College in EArly Childhood Education.  She has been with Child’s Play for 3 years and has been in the Little Wonders room for 1 year.  She already considers herself, an expert in being a good toddler teacher!

Ms. Vicky loves spending time wither family and friends, geneaology – she recently traced her husband Jon’s family back to the 1500’s!

Ms. Vicky loves working with Ms. Shirley, Ms. Penny and Ms. Lynn.  She enjoys that they all get along great and work as a team.  She also loves to see her toddlers every day.

Ms. Vicky wishes every parent knew to focus on every moment with
their kids because they grow up way too fast!

If Ms. Vicky could meet anyone, alive or passed, she would like to meet her Grandmother and Aunt.  They both passed away in the early 1970’s and she knows she would have had a great relationship with both of them!

Ms. Vicky loves coming to work every day to play and teach her toddlers.  She has a lot of fun.  She can’t believe how smart 1 year olds are!

** Get Out! Our ideas for inexpensive, high-energy, low-wallet-impact outdoor fun!

1. Take a walk – add this to your day, every day, and create a good habit for you and your family.

2. Take in one of our local parks – every park in the county has something special!

Horse Swings – Did you know that there are only a couple of parks in the country that still feature the old metal horse swings that a couple of our local parks still feature?  They are talking about retiring these old stand-bys!  Make sure your child has a chance to ride one!  Horse Swings are at End Park (N. 13th & Bell Avenue) and Cleveland Park (N. 25th & Geele Avenue).

Waterfront – The park at North Beach (on Broughton Drive) and King Park (South Lakeshore Road) have some of the best views in the state.  One hot evening, the cool lake breezes are welcome respite!

Memorial Park in Howards Grove (Hwy 42 and N. River Parkway) – a full-sized tank welcomes you to this park full of equipment for all ages.

Roosevelt Park in Kohler (Roosevelt & Highland Drive) – even if you’re not there for the Kohler Picnic, this park is nice and shady.

School Playgrounds – all of the Sheboygan School District playgrounds are open to the public after school and on weekends.  These awesome, well-maintained facilities are a great way to introduce younger children to future experiences!

3. Beach Baby! Beaches are great fun, even when it’s too cold to swim.  There is something about being close to the w

ater and touching the sand .that can chase away worry and stress!

If you haven’t been to Terry Andrae State Park, you must go.  The Quarry will also be adding some awesome swimming elements this summer (for a small cost). Firemen’s Park in Elkhart Lake has an awesome inland lake beach where the water is nice and warm from the end of June through September!

4. Bike Riding – driving in circles is good exercise, but so is a long bike ride. Strap on your helmet, grab a couple of water bottles and take a roll along the lakefront or on the Plank Road Trail.

5. Make a fort with a couple of blankets and picnic table.  You don’t need a hammer and nails to make a pretty great fort outside.

6. Fairy Gardens – give your children a couple feet of space in the yard to construct a fairy garden of their own. Gather sticks, stones, pinecones, dried flowers, grasses, string and other natural things to give the fairies a place to visit.  You don’t need much room for creativity to flow.  For some ideas, check out this book about fairy gardens: http://www.amazon.com/Fairy-Gardening-Creating-Magical-Miniature/dp/1616088338/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1364817689&sr=8-2&keywords=fairy+gardens

** Portfolios & Checklists

Your child’s portfolio and developmental checklist will be coming home on April 22nd for your review.  We ask that you return your reservation form for a conference by April 26th.  Conferences will be scheduled during the week of May 6-10.

As a part of our curriculum ~ High Reach Learning (www.highreach.com) ~ we review your child’s skills and developmental benchmarks twice per year.  Enclosed is your child’s checklist and portfolio of projects and classroom work for your review.

The Developmental checklist is a guideline to observe each child’s growth and development compared to milestones of average abilities for each age group.  Each child progresses at their own pace and these results should not be cause for concern.  However, if you would like to discuss the results and discover ways to encourage further growth and development at home, we welcome you to join us for a Parent-Teacher Conference.

Our staff members study the growth and development of every child and plan classroom activities to encourage new discoveries and development for the class as a whole.  They also work directly with each child to identify areas of special skill or those needing attention.  During Parent-Teacher Conferences, our staff will provide an overview of your child’s progress, make recommendations for home-based learning and preview future plans for your child’s development.

** MARK YOUR CALENDARS

4/9/13      Lake Country Academy Early Release (11:30 a.m.)

 

** Ms. Penny

Ms. Penny started with Child’s Play on March 15, 1987. She has been teamed up with Ms. Lynn for 12 years.

With seven brothers and sisters, three children and four grandkids and training from Lakeshore Technical College’s (LTC) Early Childhood Program, Ms. Penny brings a positive attitude and a love for children to work every day. She also enjoys baking, her grandchildren, fall colors, country music and anything outside including walking and building snowmen and snowhouses.

Ms. Penny is most proud of her family and enjoyed spending Christmas with them. In fact, if Ms. Penny could meet anyone in the world, she would love to meet Santa Claus because he brings out the best in everyone!

Maybe she’d even watch her favorite movie, White Christmas, with him or discuss the last book she read, Christmas Angels.

We think she’d get along great with the big guy in red because her words to live by are “be nice” and “a smile goes a long way.” We know it’s true because her morning greetings always have us smiling.

** Staff Spotlight – Ms. Lynn

Ms. Lynn celebrated 25 years on October 10, 2013.

Beyond sharing the young 2’s classroom with Ms. Penny, Ms. Lynn loves reading, puzzles, scrapbooking and spending as much time as possible with her granddaughters Briana and Elizabeth. In fact, she considers herself an expert at being a grandmother, which comes in handy in the classroom too.

Ms. Lynn loves working with Penny and being a part of Child’s Play. She is amazed by how many lives they touch in a small way and she wants every parent to know that she does her very best to take care of the children in her room every day.

In fact, Ms. Lynn makes it her mission to teach history to little minds so they will know what a telephone with a cord looks like, how a record player works and what an album is! It’s the little things.

If Ms. Lynn could meet one person in the world, she would love to know her grandmother on her father’s side who passed on when she was two years old.

Each day, Ms. Lynn lives out her words of wisdom – “Give thanks for life’s simple blessings.”
