We are now in the month of May! Zoo and water animals are the main topics of the month, and this first week we talked about jungle, monkey, elephant, giraffe, lion and zebra. Tiny turtles are very excited getting to know more about these animals, the sounds that they make as well as their features.
Children had a lot of fun in exploration time, playing with a “barrel of monkeys”, tower of monkeys game and plastic and plush zoo animals. They had a blast with our sensory box which had some plastic leaves and grass. Kiddos enjoyed taking their plastic zoo animals to the “Habitat” box, and making the sound that each animal makes.
In creativity class we started our “Zoo” using different materials to create the animals we’re learning so much about. In physical development we are starting to rehearse for our end of the year program, you’re going to love it!
