Teacher's Comment/
Parent Reminders

 

March came in roaring like dinosaurs in our PreK class.  We uncovered bones, put T-Rex bones together, stepped inside the footprint of Apatosaurus and created our own fossils.  We went out to the parking area near the turf to measure the various lengths of our favorite dinosaurs. Our dinosaur jokes cracked us up and hope you enjoyed them too.  Our finale was experimenting with erupting volcanoes.


March 21st we began discussions of our 5 senses.  It brought us more awareness of ourselves and how amazing our brain is, how what we see, hear, touch, smell and taste help to keep us safe but also brings us joy!.  Have you ever seen an orange, held it in your hands and felt the bumps? Peeled the orange, and smelled the fragrant citrus? Then squeezed it’s juice into a cup listening to the drops of liquid and finally,  tasting it? Mmmm, yum! To conclude our unit on our 5 senses, we will read a few versions of The Gingerbread Man, make and bake a gingerbread man and hope he doesn’t escape.  Stay tuned…


We head into April with our theme on Space and our solar system.  We will have a space tent ready so that we can read books under the stars.  We’ll make telescopes using a paper towel roll and create our own star cluster and constellation.  We’ll also make and test meteorites with aluminum and crepe paper and sing songs to help us remember the different planets.


April 10th is PreK’s Grandparents and Special Friend’s Day.  We are busy rehearsing a special dance and are excited to host our grandparents and special friends!


We close the month of April with Holy week.  We will focus on Easter, Spring, bunnies and eggs!


Happy Easter everyone!
