5 Day 4’s

Earth Day is officially  Monday, April 22nd. Our unit this week deals with the earth, our environment and re-cycling. Lots of conversation and projects having to do with;  soil, planting, seeds, germination, the water cycle and trash. The letter of the week was “t” with lots of tongue twisters to contend with. We used tissue paper and water to create very colorful and delicate “tissue painting” art work.


Extended Day 4’s

We have been hard at work making our projects and learning our songs for our Spring Show (May 10th). We learned many interesting facts about Ladybugs. Did you know that a ladybug can have anywhere from 0-22 spots?  We read The Grouchy Ladybugs and learned  all  about  aphids. (Aphids are very small insects that suck the juice from leaves.) Lady bugs eat aphids! Next week sharing letter is Ii.



Hot! Hot! Hot!   The children have just finished up our unit on “The Desert”. Through books, stories, songs and pretend play, they learned about what grows & lives in a desert. They had a blast finger painting different colors together to create our desert sunset. We also sponge painted our cactus, made ziti snakes, as well as paper plate snakes. We even painted bubble wrap to make our giant snake which the children named “Morty”. The children created their own deserts by using various materials such as popcorn, toothpicks, sand, glue, cotton and scraps of paper. We learned about evaporation & had fun learning about the desert animals. Our next unit is all about Spring which will include birds, bugs, flowers, gardening and planting. Stay tuned!
