We love unit studies. I think that is why I am so in love with Mother Goose Time preschool curriculum. Each day is it’s own little unit and expanding on it to fit all ages is easy. The Grasshopper and the Ant is truly a great story for kids to learn. After all, anything with the moral of hard work pays off is good right?

Learn about the parts of an ant
Get an ant farm so you can watch the ants live and grow. We live the new gel farms are really cool to watch.
The Grasshopper and the Ant board game is a great addition to your day and can be used over and over again. Board games are great for teaching children to think analytically. This game teaches kids how stealing instead of doing the hard work can backfire. Hard work pays off.
Sensory bin: I love to offer the children sensory bins to keep busy while I work one on one with each child. This bin contained corn, various things to use as scoops, a paper funnel, and the jar the popcorn came in. A small food storage container created a fun musical instrument. Little Owl just played and dumped the bin. Monkey and Turtle were “challenged” by me to get each piece of corn back into the jar when it was their turn.
