Prekindergarten Connections

November News from the Pre-K Classroom



The world runs on wheels! From tires to Ferris wheels to stroller wheels and rolling pins, wheels are all around us. Most children enjoy playing with wheels and use them in many ways. A study of wheels helps children expand their understanding of wheels beyond the tires on a car or bus and discover the wide variety of wheels in their school and community.

Investigating wheels gives children an opportunity to learn how wheels work and make people's everyday lives better.
