In May, toddlers will be experiencing the flavor of Cinco de Mayo! We will create egg carton maracas, sombreros, and pinata suncatchers. We will even attempt a game of pin the tail on the donkey!
We will also be reading Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" and creating our own caterpillars to turn into butterflies.
As June rolls in, the toddlers will enjoy the sun, sand and water! We will engage in sand and water play as we enjoy the warmer weather. The toddlers will create textured art with sand, talk about what kinds of animals we can find in the ocean and have a car wash outside for our toy cars.

We will be celebrating children completing a school year, moving on to another class, or venturing on to Kindergarten in the Fall!
Congratulations to all of our wonderful children and their families!!
We thank you for all the support you have given us throughout the school year.
to one and all !
April whizzed by but we had wonderful and exciting activities such as our Western Week, Spring Fling and Hop-A-Thon. We celebrated Earth Day with projects made with our hands. We talked about taking care of the land, sky and water. We made an Earth Cake for the day.
May brings us a time to tell our Moms how special they are and we will give them a Mother's Day surprise. We will also do a unit on pets and will turn our Sweet Shop into a Pet Center.
June will bring us to exploring all about dinosaurs! Projects will be geared toward this theme. The end of the school year will come quicker than we realize so we will be wrapping things up and getting ready for summertime fun!
WE HAVE SLOTS OPEN IN OUR PRESCHOOL CLASSES FOR 3 AND 4 YEAR OLDS!
Spring has finally arrived! We will be spending much of our time outside soaking up the sun.
The children will learn to recognize the letters R, X, and Y. Our classroom will be transformed into a restaurant for a day. The children will make up and design their own menus. They will be learning good manners to use at the table.
The class will be searching for treasures in their very own "X marks the spot" treasure hunt!
Looking ahead to June:
Letter Z - zoo animals and zucchini bread
Letter W - weather and wishing wells, flowers strawberries, and bugs
