Red Robins May News

Orange Preschool

Look what we’ve learned!

In the month of April, the Red Robins celebrated multicultural day and we were able to taste, hear, smell, and see different things from other cultures. Malek, Gwyneth, Christina, Jesse, Violet, Melody, Seraphine, Katelyn, Clarissa, Aiden, Gia and Anika came to school to share their culture with the class.

We also learned about Life on the Farm and we will learn about the many types of animals that you can see there. Some of the animals the children named were horses, cows, chicks, pigs, and many more. We also learned some animals in spanish. For example: Duck- El Pato, Horse – El Caballo, and Pig – El Cerdo. The children made really cool barns with animals, and they drew their own spots on the cows. All the children played in water with farm animals in the water tables.

For the week of Nature and Our Environment, we read and talked about liter and how it makes our Earth dirty. The children drew a picture of Nature and we talked about all the colors that you can see around us.

The Red Robins will learn about plants and growing things. For art, they drew trees and flowers. The children will also make flowers with tissue paper and made a collage of growing things.

This month, the Red Robins took their Cap and Gown pictures. They looked really cute!! We started to practice our graduation songs as well.

The children reviewed the letters A-H and they have been working on recognizing numbers.

 

What we will learn in the month of May…

In the month of May, the Red Robins will learn about our Mom's and how special they are. They will be making a special Mother's Day Card and Gift to take home for their Moms.

Together as a class, we will make a special snack for Cino De Mayo and dance the Mexican Hat Dance.

The Red Robins will be exploring the world of Insects and Creep Crawlies that we can find all over the world. They will be creating butterflies, catterpillars, ladybugs, and many more.

At the end of the month, we will be going over all the colors and we will be mixing colors to see what new color we can make. I Spy will be the fun and exciting game to play to find colors. The children will be making a color collage and rainbows.
