Keeping Head Lice at Bay
It is every preschool teacher’s nightmare to be sitting at carpet time, only to notice one of your littles keeps scratching their head.
If your anything like me you instantly start to feel like something is crawling on your head and you start to scratch too. You take a deep breath and say to yourself I need to check my little for head lice.
Make sure that your classroom doesn’t spread the little critters by
I don’t like using chemicals on myself so if I can avoid using them around my littles in my classroom I do. I like to turn to natural remedies whenever I can.
And did you know that natural remedies really work!
Lice are Not Nice Spray
Add 8oz of distilled water to an 8oz glass spray bottle.
Add 10 drops of doTERRA Melaleuca essential oil and 10 drops of doTERRA Lavender essential oil to the bottle.
Shake bottle every morning and spray items that could harbor those not so nice lice.
Note: the quality of the oils you use is important! Many oils that you can find in health food stores and large box stores can be contaminated with pesticides, additives or synthetic fragrances. This defeats the purpose of going with a natural solution. Learn about the pure, premium quality oils I recommend. HERE

Stone Soup has always been one of my favorites to read to children.
I love how this book shows children how to come together to enjoy something that they all created together.
Start the unit off by having children come together by making their own batch of stone soup.
Enhancing the Learning Centers
Add the leftover vegetables from making the soup so that the children can explore and observe the vegetables.
Add cans to the block center to provide a different building material.
Stone Soup has been NEWLY UPDATED!!
