Spring is finally approaching and new life is beginning to appear all around us in the form of green grass, sprouting flowers, and budding trees. It’s a wonderful time of the year for children to be outside observing this process happen.
Take at least 1/2 an hour each day to be outside with nature and observe the growth, pollination, and seed dispersal that will occur over the next few months. An observation journal is a great way to refine observation skills and combine writing practice and art.

Free Montessori Printable for April: Earth Day … Every Day!
As you’re probably all aware, it’s Earth Day on Monday April 22. While it’s very important to celebrate Earth Day, it’s just as important to find small ways to make every day Earth Day.
It’s important to talk to children from a very young age about the small things that they can do on a daily basis to improve and protect our precious planet. The point to make is that Earth Day can (and should be) every day!
We’ve created a FREE printable “Earth Day … Every Day!” for April that can help you introduce simple concepts and ideas that the children can bring in to their every day life. Let’s make every day Earth day.
