The learning theme for this month is the weather. We will be discussing the sun, wind, rain, clouds, thunder, lightning, and review snow and frost. We will definitely celebrate St .Patrick’s Day; we will listen to Irish music and learn about the art of traditional Irish dancing. Children will make Shamrock ecklaces. Children will learn about the magical legend of the Irish Leprechaun. We will experience and taste-test the traditional Irish stew and Irish Potato bread. We look forward to making a traditional Irish Hat. We will view pictures of Ireland and encourage children to enjoy and discuss what they see.
Our Pre-K class has been busy learning about the Solar System facts and Astronomy. They have created their own planets by using various Styrofoam balls. They had fun naming them and making each planet, as well as painted them, using water colors, glitter and markers. The Pre-K class continues to excel and thrive as they learn about planets and space. They know the planets travel in circular paths (called orbits) around it. These planets travel in the same direction. They will continue to explore Mars and Jupiter.
The three year old class continues to amaze me with their eagerness to learn and try new things. They made snow and they painted the snow using their favorite water colors. They are learning about phonics as they learn to read. The three year olds are also anxiously waiting to learn all about rabbits. We will discuss the special characteristics of rabbits. They all have long ears. They move by hopping and why do they hop? Their nose wiggles and why does it wiggle? They come in many colors and combination of colors. We will also compare such quality to the human race. We will also talk about their long ears. Some are large and some are small. They eat plants and other vegetables. They live in a burrow in the ground. We will also discuss what care they need if you keep them as pets. We will read the book Peter Rabbit. Visit a farm with your child and explore rabbits and their characteristics. Continue reading “New Activities at BlueBird”
