Michael loves exploring shape and dimension when building the Brown Stair.
Ryleigh is using the Subtraction Strip Board to help her memorize essential math facts.
Deia is learning about multiplication with our Multiplication Bead Bars.
This week we will be exploring Life Cycles. Our lady bug larvae have arrived and the children are sure to enjoy watching how they mature into lady bugs. The Kindergarten children have already begun documenting their observations in their journals. Seeds are also part of Life Cycles. This week the children will each be given a lima bean seed to observe. We will soak the beans in moist paper towels and place them in a ziploc bag so the children will be able to observe the growth process. Make room in your garden for a lima bean plant! The books we will read this week include First the Egg, and The Tiny Seed.
Please Keep in Mind…
May 15 is the Art Festival. The children have enjoyed working hard on our project for the Silent Auction.
