During the month of May, our class will be learning all about Spring! We will be making butterflies, dragonflies, and flowers. Together as a team, my children will create a Spring bulletin board. We will read books and sing songs about Spring during circle time and learn a little bit about the butterfly life cycle. The children will also make fun Mother's Day cards to honor their mothers!
June will bring us to warmer weather and we will be putting together an ocean theme. We will all work on an ocean scene for our bulletin board. We will be making silly jellyfish, paper plate whales and doing fish crafts including a toilet paper roll octopus! During circle time we will be reading books about the ocean and sing a fun shark song! We will be doing an activity to honor our Dad's for Father's Day.
Happy Spring to All!
WE HAVE SLOTS OPEN IN OUR TODDLER ROOM AND OUR PRE-K ROOM.
PRESCHOOL (3 year olds)
During the months of May and June we will continue to focus on one letter a week. We will be practicing letter recognition and writing our letters. We will continue to work on our days of the weeks and months of the year, as well as our daily weather report. We have added our four seasons as part of our circle time.
Each day we will continue to do projects including painting, cutting with scissors and gluing. Our projects will always be tied into our letter of the week.
We are enjoying outside time with the weather being so nice lately. The children have so much energy and look forward to going out twice a day to run and play with their friends. They sleep very well at naptime after being outdoors in the mornings!
The Center will be hosting a Mother's Day celebration for our Center's Mom's and Grandmothers on May 6 and we will be celebrating Dad's and Grandpa's on June 16.
Refreshments and an activity will be enjoyed by all!
