M is for mud!

We had a blast learning all about the letter Mm and mud!  We got our feet muddy and had a tasty muddy snack too.

Story Time

IMG_4793We read the book “Mud” by Mary Lyn Ray.   This book follows the seasons from winter to spring and how the earth changes and the soil becomes muddy after the snow melts.

Sing With Me

Pigs in the Mud

(to the tune of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Down on the farm we love to play

In the mud all through the day

That is why we love to spy

Great big rain clouds in the sky.

Down in the mud we make a hole

Where we like to roll and roll.

That is why we shout “Hurray!”

Every time it rains today.


IMG_4790We made muddy foot prints by stepping in brown paint and walking down the paper.


Snack Time

IMG_4806We even ate mud!  Chocolate pudding mud with crushed up Oreo cookies for dirt and a gummy worm.

Sensory Play

IMG_4786We made real mud by mixing water and dirt and squishing it in a bag.  It was a great science and sensory experience.

U is for Up….

I just love the Disney movie Up!  Carl reminds me so much of my own grandpa that I get sentimental when I watch it.  It’s such a great movie all about really living life while you can and not missing any opportunities.  I was inspired by the movie to create a unique craft for our letter Uu week.  We also read “Beneath a Blue Umbrella” and made water color umbrellas too.


Read To Me


We read “Beneath a Blue Umbrella” by Jack Pretlutsky.

Sing With Me

(to the tune of “Looby Loo”)

We put our umbrellas up.
We close our umbrellas down.
We give our umbrellas
A shake, shake, shake,
And turn them all around.

Art Time

IMG_4181We painted our umbrellas with water colors to give them a rainy day look!

letter U craftTo make the balloons for our “Up” house, the children used their fingers dipped in paint.

We completed our pictures by adding a house, strings onto the balloons and clouds.

What does the fox say?

Dog goes woof, cat goes meow. Bird goes tweet, and mouse goes squeak.Cow goes moo. Frog goes croak, and the elephant goes toot.Ducks say quack and fish go blub, and the seal goes OW OW OW.
But there’s one sound that no one knows…

Everyone knows the wildly popular YouTube sensation “What Does the Fox Say?” by Ylves Click here to hear the silly song!  We had so much fun learning all about the letter Ff and the fox!

Read To Me

We read “The Fox and the Falling Leaves” by Julia Rawlinson.  This is an adorable story all about a baby fox and his discovery of the seasons.

Sing With Me


One little, two little,

three little foxes.

Four little, five little,

six little foxes.

Seven little, eight little,

nine little foxes,

ten little foxes sniffing for food.

Ten little, nine little,

eight little foxes. Seven little,

six little, five little foxes.

Four little, three little,

two little foxes,

One little fox asleep in his den.
