Tadpole Tales: Plants, Birds, and Rainbows

The weather was as close to perfect as could be  — Wow!

It was so much fun playing outside with the Tadpoles. In small groups the children planted seedlings outside with Ms. Lora, and later with me. Then we watered the plants. That was fun. After they took turns helping me water the plants, I turned the nozzle to mist and showed the Tadpoles a rainbow while getting them wet. They kept running up to the water and away again, over and over. They were disappointed when the water was turned off, but quickly went back to playing in the yard.

The Tadpoles also helped me fill the bird feeder today. They each took turns scooping the seeds in. Then they sat on the ground a short distance from the feeder to wait for the birds to come. A robin flew to the ground and picked up a worm while they were waiting. They all got excited and watched as it moved around and flew back into a tree.

Inside, the Tadpoles played fun jumping games in the back room. They took turns climbing onto the step-like mat and jumping off of it. They also played catch with a soft ball back and forth.

In the front room, the Tadpoles played with musical instruments. They sang songs while they played, including “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,” “The Itsy Bitsy Spider,” and “ABC’s,” Some preferred to do drums while others played and sang.

It was a fun day at Frog Pond.
