May 12th to May 16th

We had a great week in PreK! We continued to learn about simple machines and inclined planes. Today was Ms. Derhyll’s last day before she goes on maternity leave. We are sad to see her leave but we wish her and her family all the best! Ms. Shara and Ms. Darlene will be joining us for the rest of the school year.

Next week we will continue to learn about simple machines by exploring levers. Some simple examples are levers are seesaws, scissors, and door handles. Our focus question will be How are levers used?” We will be exploring examples of levers and how levers work.
