The Friday 5 for May 28th

28th May, 2010 - Posted by - No Comments


Once again, play, movement and early childhood is in the news and on the minds of many. So, we’re going to start doing a Friday Five — a sampling of articles and blog posts that caught our eye  that will be of interest to Head Start, parent and early childhood education communities.

This week’s Friday 5:

  1. It’s no secret we’re big fans of dirt — but we’re not the only ones. Science Daily asks, Can bacteria make you smarter?
  2. Happy news indeed!  Forest preschools are taking root in the USA
  3. Lifestyle offers us 20 Family Fun Ideas Activities to do On a Budget
  4. Get great summer outdoor play ideas from 5 Orange Potatoes
  5. TBSB blogger Jenny answers the question, How much fun CAN preschoolers have with a length of rope?

Did anything catch your eye this week? We would love to know about it — so share it in the comments section.

Have a great weekend, everyone. Make some extra time to get outside and play! :-) Bethe
