2 Year Old Class:
The toddlers are preparing for their Mother's Day Celebration on May 9th and 10th. The children will sing a song, give a gift and eat a treat that they prepared for their moms! During circle time using our instruments and the felt board, we will be singing two of our favorite songs: Old Macdonald and The Wheels on the Bus. At the end of the month, our bean box will magically turn into a water table! Lots of bubble fun!!
3 Year Old Class:
The 3's are very busy and having a great time preparing special gifts for our upcoming Mother's Day Tea. Our caterpillars have arrived and we will be following their transformation into butterflies, at which time, we will release them into the playground. It will be a nice way to end our Bug Unit. The ABC books are almost complete. The children have worked hard all year on them. As the weather warms up, we continue to enjoy outside play time. May also brings the transition into end of the year activities. There are songs to learn and crafts to be made.
4 Year Old Class:
May is here and the 4's are busy preparing their Mother’s Day surprises that they will present to their mom during our special Mother’s Day celebration. The children are keeping their gifts a “secret” and you can hear them giggle when they tell mommy that they have a surprise for them! Our caterpillars are here and the children are intently observing and recording their changes and development. Each morning the children enjoy noticing how the caterpillars have grown and they look forward to seeing them form into a chrysalis and then emerge as a butterfly. Our butterfly study will lead into a Bug Unit. Children will show their imaginative side when they create and name their own bug. The 4’s will make a tee shirt with every child and teacher’s handprint on it. This tee shirt will be worn during a class trip in June and the shirt will be a fond memory of their friends and teachers at NNS. Our journal entries continue documenting our growth during the year. Towards the end of the month, the 4’s will be concentrating on preparing for their graduation day.
