This newsletter will serve for three weeks; because of spring break the next newsletter will come out on March 31. Your little doctors and scientists have been having so much fun learning about animals and how to care for them. Perhaps they told you about our visit with the National Park Rangers and their presentation on mountain lions that live in the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. These next couple of weeks we will continue with our pets unit. We will have a pet shop in the dramatic play center and practice rhyming with books about animals.
Highlights of this week:
Social Emotional: Inviting to Play
Letter of the Week: B for balloon
Literacy: More rhyming activities and games
Songs: Bubble Gum by Woody Guthrie
Books: Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum by Lisa Wheeler
Science: Balloon rockets
Art: Fish sun catchers
Sensory Table: Bubbly pet wash station
Music and Movement: More parachute games
