Blue Birds May News

Orange Preschool

Look what we’ve learned!

In the month of April, the Blue Birds learned about Life on a Farm, Nature, Our Environment, Plants and Growing Things, and celebrated multicultural day. We spoke about all the different cultures there are around the world. For example, how each culture has their own language and how we all dress differently. The Blue Birds also learned all the different animals that live on a farm, what a farmer does, and where we can go visit a farm. The Blue Birds also learned the importance of keeping our environment clean, how we can help to make it a better place for us to live! We also learned about how our plants and trees grow. The Blue Birds planted their own flowers and they watched them grow. They were very creative making butterflies, eggs, flowers, and bunnies. The Blue Birds continued reviewing our letters Aa-Jj and practiced our tracing. 

 

What we will learn in the month of May…
