This week we have been talking all about bugs! We have seen new vocabulary words such as worms, bugs, dirt, grass, beehive, bees, fly, swatter, ladybug, grasshopper, caterpillar, butterfly and ants! We also talked about spring, changing weather, spring time showers and flowers!
During Exploration Time they have been really interested in manipulating bugs and using play-doh to create fossils! In Creativity Class they started working on their bumble bees, painting a plate yellow and using corks to paint the black lines on their backs! They also thoroughly enjoyed our process art activity which simply consisted in exploring painting and mixing colors utilizing balloons!
Story Time has also been interesting for them with stories related to this theme. Books read this week include: The Very Busy Bee, I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly, The Very Quiet Cricket and The Very Hungry Caterpillar.
Next week we will begin to talk about Easter!
Lastly, I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience my getting ill this week and having to reschedule our parent teacher conferences may have caused. Today Friday I was finally back at work, healthy and excited to see you next week and share with you how wonderful your kids have been doing, growing and learning in our classroom!
Have great weekend!!
