What are babies?
Week One- What do human babies need?
Weeks Two and Three- What can we learn about animal babies?*
*Note that children will explore this question
for two weeks.
Week Four- How do babies change
We used different color flower cut outs to practice putting two groups together.
In the block Center we created gardens, parks and roof top gardens.
Dramatic Play Center was turned into a flower shop. We made bouquets and sold them to our friends. We also had a small vegetable garden.
We planted grass seeds, lima beans and radish seeds.
The Sand table was filled with dirt and Lima beans that had the letter written on them. The children were encouraged to dig in the dirt to find the beans and match the letters to a separate mat.

In the ABC center we worked on sounding out CVC words together.
Students used the blocks to make boats
We mixed water, paint and soap and made bubbles using straws. Then we rested paper on the bubbles to leave the colors onto the paper. The colored paper was perfect to make an underwater picture!
We put some paint in the freezer. When the paint was frozen we tried painting with it. It was hard at first but as it melted it was easier to move on the paper.

Pre-K spent the month of February studying LIGHT! We experimented with different light sources such as flashlights, sunlight, and glow sticks. We used light to determine if items were translucent, transparent or opaque. Students used many different objects to cast shadows and we went outside to play with our own shadows. We learned how some animals sleep in the daytime, they are called nocturnal and we are diurnal because we sleep at night.
In the ABC center we used straight and curved lines to create letters for our names.
In the science center we used a prism to experiment with bending light. If we held the flashlight just right we found a rainbow. We used mirrors to reflect the light.
In the Math Center we experimented with moving moving shadows. We learned how shadows move depending on where the light source is coming from. We also learned how a shadow gets bigger and smaller.
We went outside and watched as our shadow followed every move we made!

In the ABC center we matched lower case letters to their upper case letter in different puzzle games. We also worked on rhyming words.
In the Block center we built bridges and roads in a city.
In the Engineering Center we built different vechiles and learned how gears move and work.
We traced letters and colored them in to make a licence plate with our names on them.
We used manipulatives to count wheels for the trucks, filling in tens frames with the correct number. We also matched community helpers with their vehicles and the shapes of traffic signs.
