Yellow Sunshines May News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of April, the Yellow Sunshine’s’ learned about growing things and bugs.  We had fun planting seeds and we watched them grow.  As a class, we had fun with different bugs.  We had a snail race and hunted for bugs on the playground.  The Sunshine’s’ found a spider, ants, and a rollie-pollie.  We continued to play with plastic bugs.  The children created sunflowers with sunflower seeds, handprint flowers, and bugs to decorate the classroom.  As a class, we tasted many different foods that our families brought in for multicultural week.  For spring, we had a fun spring snack party and searched for eggs.  We reviewed all our numbers, shapes, and letters.

 

What we will learn this month…

For the month of May, The Yellow Sunshine’s’ will be learning about weather, sky and space, and all about our moms and how special they are.    The children are making special gifts for their mom and are learning a special song.  For weather, they are making kites, clouds, suns, and rainbows.  As a class, we will be flying our kites on a windy day.  For space, we will be painting and drawing planets, making moon necklaces, moons with play dough, moon pudding, and flying a rocket balloon.    We will review the letters K-R, colors, shapes, and numbers 1-10.
