Theme: Spring

Upcoming Bible Verse:  Let us know; let us press on to know the Lord; his going out is as sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, 
as the spring rains that water on the earth.--Hosea 6:3

Signs of Spring: Goodbye winter, with your bitter winds and mounds of snow, and hello spring. Spring, of course, marks the beginning of warmer weather and longer daylight hours, the blooming of flowers and the budding of leaves.

Spring is one of the four conventional temperate seasons, following winter and preceding summer. There are various technical definitions of spring, but local usage of the term varies according to local climate, cultures and customs. When it is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, it is autumn in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa. At the spring, or vernal, equinoxdays are approximately 12 hours long with day length increasing as the season progresses.
Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and also to ideas of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth.

The Earth’s axis, the imaginary line around which the earth turns in its daily rotation, is slightly tilted. The seasons are caused by this tilt and by the fact that the Earth’s axis always holds the same location in space. If the axis were not tilted, the sun would always be directly over the Equator and the northern and southern hemispheres would both have constant, similar weather the year round

What are the different seasons? What is the sequence of the seasons. Ask: What is the weather like during the different seasons? What is the same or different about the seasons? Include similarities and differences in weather, temperature, and length of daylight.


Theme: Rainbows

Bible Verse:  Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on earth. Genesis 9:16

I can sort different objects based on attributes.
I can identity different types of weather.
I can use my pincer grip to string beads and buttons.
I can count out ingredients needed to make shamrock stew.
I can create art using colors of the rainbow.
I can be a good friend by sharing.
I can observe and participate in multiple experiments involving the colors of the rainbow.

Rainbows happen when sunlight and rain combine in a very specific way. The beams of sunlight separate into the colors we see in the rainbow as they enter a raindrop. Sunlight is actually made up of different colors that we don't usually see. When a beam of sunlight comes down to Earth, the light is white.
