April 28th to May 2nd

This week in PreK we finished our unit on insects. We completed our bees, which are hanging outside the classroom. Throughout the unit, the children enjoyed learning facts about insects as well as exploring the insects that live in our school community.

Next week we will start our new unit on simple machines. The central idea of our next unit is  Simple machines can be used for work and play.  We will start our unit by exploring what we already know about simple machines. We will then explore the following lines of inquiry throughout our unit:
