I have been trying to have preschool with Baby Girl every day since school started. She doesn't really like it. She hates structure and routines. So, I'm trying to find ways to still teach a few things, but have it be fun. Thus, our preschool in the pool.
We went out and counted how many times we could jump up and down. We sang the ABC's while we chased each other around the pool. We played "I Spy". We watched a butterfly land on the "biggie board" (it's just a little kick board) and take a drink with it's long tongue. Then we talked about where the butterfly might live and what other creatures might live in the bushes and trees. Overall I think it was a very successful lesson and since there really doesn't look like it's going to cool down any time soon, we will probably be able to do it several more times before we put the pool away for the "winter".
