Ladybugs, Bees and Dragonflies 

Prek 4 / Wraparound Class ( Adele Leeds )

 

We’ll continue our alphabet review(G,H,I and J) and practice letter formation and beginning sounds.

We are learning to count by 5s (1-100 ) and are practicing each day at circle time. We are also reviewing and remembering odd and even numbers ( 1-30 ).

We’ll make ladybugs, bees and dragonflys as we explore  the bugs and insects that spring brings to us! With oranges, grapes, carrots, celery and arugula  we’ll make colorful and nutritious  butterfly snacks!!

With gooey substances (honey, syrup and molasses) we’ll observe and explore textures and gravity as we watch gravity pull the honey etc from spoon to bowl! 

To review colors and challenge the children’s observation and memory skills we’ll play “what’s missing” using colorful cookie cutouts!

At circle time we’ll create a unique garden. With his eyes closed each child will place a spring flower in our flower bed. This activity, a version of ” pin the tail on the donkey,” challenges understanding spatial relationships and visual memory.

We’ll read Butterflies by Emily Neye and Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey.
