Themes For The Month Of April:
Week One-Spring-New Life! Eggs, Chicks, Bunnies!
Week Two-Getting Ready For Easter!
Week Three- Earth Week!-We take care of God's gift of the Earth!
A Quick Look Ahead:
This week, the children will explore "Earth Week"! We will learn that God created the world and bestows on us the responsibility of caring for our planet. The children will learn how to keep the Earth clean, how to recycle and how to make the world beautiful by creating art.
Last week, when we studied the letter R we mixed colors to create a rainbow! This week, when we study the letter S, we will learn about and plant sunflowers.
We will learn how to identify the letter and explore some words that start with the letter of the week. As our study of the alphabet enfolds, we hope to build a connection between the spoken and written word. We will make a simple word list of all the words we collected each week. At the beginning of each week, you might like to post the highlighted letter in a central location of your home, such as your refrigerator or in your child's bedroom.
You can also tell your child one or two words that start with the letter. You do not have to write it down---just tell them and see if they remember. We especially like it if our names or the name of a family member starts with the letter of the week.
Show and Tell will be on Wednesday! Don't forget to bring something in that starts with the letter S!
The Budding Mathematicians:
This week, we will identify numbers and count quantities up to the number 7. We will also create springtime patterns.
Fine Motor News:
To help build our fine motor skills, the children will continue to cut the outlines of shapes.
