Hello March in Pre-K 2!

Good afternoon Pre-K 2 families,


Happy March! We are starting an exciting new Seeds of STEM unit this month: Habitats. This week we learned that habitats are where people and animals live and they provide: food, water, shelter and air. We also learned a little bit about the FOREST habitat. Over the next few weeks, we will explore other habitats and then move on to some more problem solving skills. I think that the children will really enjoy this unit!


This week at MORNING MEETING:

Story: "Over in the Forest" by Marianne Berkes, “Who lives here” by Kathleen Rizzi

Skills: handwriting the letter S, Reading Street Song: “Let’s Set Sail (letter S), finding the letter S

Seeds of STEM Focus: intro new vocabulary, exploring photos of homes around the world, sorting animals into forest and ocean habitats, building a forest in our sensory table


Here's what's happening at CENTERS:
