First Day of the Program

Our first program was as Mustard Seed Kidz Preschool. My daughter (and assistant) and I worked with a group of 14 adorable four-year-olds who were attentively listening while we talked about materials that can be reused and recycled in our county.

They were eager to participate and all raised their hands when it was time to place an item on the recycle board.

During story time they listened, and answered and asked questions. The song at the end -- we will recycle! -- was a hit among the little ones in that group. That should help them remember what they should do with paper, glass, cardboard, metal, and plastic bottles. "Don’t Throw That Away!" as the book we read goes.

A letter to parents that includes a family activity on reusing and a list of items that can be recycled in their city was left with the teacher so the information is sent home and gets to families too. That way everyone knows what to do and...

Recycle Brevard!
