Our butterfly hatched this week, the children loved growing them, feeding them, and having them turn into butterflies and flying them around outside. They learned a lot of the life cycle of a butterfly and where they live.
OUTDOOR LEARNING CENTERS– The cooler weather has allowed us the opportunity to do special activities outdoors. Every Thursday, each Pre-K class spends 40 minutes outside in outdoor learning centers. This week children bowled, obstacle course, water painting, and sand pit. They enjoyed learning outside today.
Five Little Monkeys – I think everyone’s favorite activity was making a crocodile puppet (that went with the story- Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree.) FIVE LITTLE MONKEYS– The author Eileen Cristelow, written some very popular children’s books that we read all week. I read them to my own five little monkeys (children) as they were growing up, and now your children are also falling in love with them. They are great ones to have in your library at home.

NEW PYP UNIT– Our new unit is coming up at the start of February and is under the transdisciplinary theme – How We Express Ourselves. We will be exploring how people have many different feelings and how they express them. This is a great unit that teaches children to understand their feelings and how to express them appropriately. We will focus on the learner profile of caring as we will also begin to think of how others are feeling.
