What's Happening at The Learning Cottage?

April Curriculum Focus

GREEN ROOM: This month students will be introduced to four different eras in transportation. During each era students will be paying close attention to the progression of three distinct modes of transportation: planes, trains and automobiles. Students will begin their journey in a horse led buggy and end their month in the future dreaming of the endless transportation possibilities

RED ROOM: This month in the Red Room students will be introduced to a variety of transportation experiences! Students will come away with a new appreciation for vehicles that drive, propel and fly

BLUE ROOM: This month we will be introducing students to some of the most famous stories in transportation. Through the reading of these stories, students will experience transportation by horse, ship and airplane, and will even get the opportunity to swim through the ocean in a small submarine

Toddler & Jr. Preschool: This month Toddler and Jr. Preschool students will also focus on different modes of transportation. Children will enjoy math and science focused activities such as sorting transportation vehicles by land, water or air, they will count wheels and identify shapes on vehicles and as they pretend to "fly through the air" in their classrooms. Art and Music activities will include songs such as; "Wheels on the Bus" and "Down by the Station" as well as numerous art projects to enhance these learning goals. Stories such as "Baby goes Beep", "Rain Forest Choo Choo" and "The Little Engine that Could" will be read throughout the month.
