Did you know you can help the earth, by reusing your food and paper waste? Mrs. Munoz loves to help Mother Earth by composting. Today we will learn more about what composting is, and how we can build our own compost at home. Let's all do our part to help our Earth!

Today’s Activities

Composting and Planting

Listen to the story “Compost Stew” by Mary McKenna Siddals to learn which items can and can’t be composted.


Using the letters in your name, make a list of items that you can use for a compost stew. Draw a picture that represents each item.

Math Facts

Let’s practice our addition facts with Jack Hartmann.

Grab an egg carton and let’s practice our math facts. Write one number in each egg slot, numbers 1 – 10. Place two objects in the carton. You could use two noodles, beans, or tokens. Shake up the egg carton, open the carton, and see where the objects landed. Write those numbers in a number sentence ex. 4 + 2 = solve the math problem. Then shake it up again. Have fun!
