Now that spring is here we will be learning about how baby animals are different from their parents. We will read many books like "Are You My Mother" by PD Eastman. For crafts we will make a baby bird, egg painting and baby owl handprint. We will be play a baby animal movement game and have baby animal races. We'll play outside if the weather is nice! Making a Mother's Day craft is also planned....shhhh!

Pre-K Matters

Spring will be a busy time for our Pre-K class. We will observe and learn about bugs. We will read books like "Waiting for Wings," by Lois Ehlert. We will make ladybugs using old CDs and butterflies using coffee filters. After bugs we will explore animals in the zoo and in the wild. Art projects will include making an elephant out of a paper plate and painting a panda bear using a fork! We will practice letters O and P.

Happy Spring!
