Ask Me What I Learned Last Week!
*Can you name some of the seasons of the year? (fall, spring, summer, winter)
*In what season would you wear sandals? Snowboots? In what season would you use a rake? A snow shovel? (Just chat with your preschooler and help them understand why specific objects would be needed in specific seasons.)
*What colors are the different parts of a growing carrot? (green and orange. We have 'researched' that the green part eventually flowers and produces seeds and that the orange part is a root that grows under ground. Children need many opportunities to think about new learning, so this is an opportunity to chat, look up growing carrots on your computer, and maybe draw a picture at home.
*April 12 & April 19: Love and Logic at Great Beginnings
*April 20-21: Parent-Teacher Conferences. Sign-up sheets went out last week. I will send out confirmations this week. Conferences will last 30-40 minutes.
