Bears Go Green by Jan Berenstain


Prek 4 ( Adele Leeds )
This week we’ll finish the alphabet (X,Y and Z).Look for our X-ray hands, yaks and zoos.
We’ll create and snack on edible zoos ( stick pretzels and animal crackers!).

We’ll use lengths of yellow yarn ( inch, foot and yard) to measure objects in school.
We’ll celebrate Earth Day (4/22) with a lesson/ activity on taking good care of our environment. We’ll talk about pollution, no littering, recycling and protecting our world and animal habitats. We’ll read The Berestain Bears Go Green by Jan Berenstain.

We’ll read Gail Gibbons From Seed to Plant and start our class seed jar ( mason jar, paper towels and green bean seeds ). You’ll see pictures of our growing plants!

To practice number recognition and counting we’ll make thumbprint caterpillars.

We’ll learn this Spring poem

Spring is here,
I see robins,
I see birds’ nests
Butterflies too,
Flowers too.
Everything is growing,
The wind is gently blowing.
Spring is here, Spring is here!

Prek 3 ( Michele )

The weather has been gorgeous!!
Hope everyone has had a wonderful spring break!
Before the break, we finished the letter V – the projects were so cute!
This week, we will begin the letter W – look for our letter W projects and worksheets.  We will be working on whales and worms!
We continue to practice our colors, shapes, and numbers.  We will begin the number 9.

At circle time, we review the days of the week, months of the year, the seasons, and what we should wear in the spring and summer, and recite our poems.
We continue to practice our manners, sharing, taking turns, and being kind to our friends.

Spring is here – it is an exciting time to be in school – so much is going on!  Playground time has finally come!!!
Remember to wear your smile to school!!
