News for the week of May 9th

Zoo Unit

This week we will start a two week "Zoo" theme in 4K! At the end of the zoo unit we will be going on a field trip to the Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison on Friday, May 20th. Throughout the next two weeks we will be talking about different animals that live in the zoo and we will be making art projects and doing activities related to the zoo.

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month!

Invite your child to participate in a storytelling activity. You start the story, (it can be as silly as you want), and continue for a few sentences, then have your child continue with the next part. You can make the story about real people or pets, or start with completely made-up characters. You can also simply re-tell an event that actually happened and let your child contribute to the sequence of the story. This is a great activity for long road trips!

Star of the Week A.M.

Great job as "Star of the Week" Zoe! Thanks for showing us your many different special stuffed animals. It was fun reading your favorite "Olaf" Frozen book to the class. Super job as "Star" Zoe!

Star of the Week P.M.

Super job as "Star of the Week" Cale! Thanks for showing us your special stuffed animal dog, reading us a book, and showing us pictures of you and your family. The whole class had such a blast doing all the fun field games your family planned for us last Friday. Awesome job Cale!
