Week of April 4th!

I hope everyone had a nice and relaxing break!

April The Study of Trees!

For the next 7 weeks, students will learn about trees.  As we investigate this topic, we will work together to find the answers to our theme questions.  Some of the questions include: What food comes from trees?  Who lives in trees? Who takes care of trees?

Some of the books we will be reading this week are:

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin
Our Tree Named Steve by Alan Zweibel
Abiyoyo by Pete Seeger

Lessons and activities for the theme:

Math – Students will have leaves to measure their height.
Art – Children will have access to paint materials, leaves, and pinecones to draw trees and make leaf or pinecone prints.
Blocks – Students will be able to create trees from the different types of blocks in the block center.
Pretend Play– Students will have materials to create a home from trees.
Writing/ iPad- Students will be able to play learning games related to the theme on the iPad.
Library- Students will have access to books about trees.
Science - Students will be able to observe sample tree materials with magnifying glasses.
Sensory Table - Sand and Water

 Please make sure your child has a complete change of clothes (that fits) in their cubby.
