Feb 29, 2016   //   by Miss Kim   //   Daily Lessons  //  Comments Off on March: Discover the Desert

Pull up your boots, put on your cowboy hat and head to the Mother Goose Time Rodeo! After practicing your rope skills, wander out into the dunes of the Sahara Desert. Explore the Mojave Desert while riding your bumpy burro. Learn ABC with an armadillo and count the sneaky little lizards. Sit for a while in the shade of a cactus, but be careful not to fall asleep because the desert comes to life at night. In this action-packed theme, explore sandy ideas near and far.
