In Language Arts last week, early preschoolers learned about the Letter Z. They worked on painting a picture of a zebra with a zipper.
In Visual Arts, students developed their fine motor skills while doing “Q-tip” painting on the Letter Z using water color paint.
In Reading, early preschoolers enjoyed the Alpha Tales read-aloud, “Zack the Lazy Zebra” by Wendy Cheyette Lewison.
Last Tuesday, April 22, we observed Earth Day in our own small way and everyone got to celebrate the importance of what Earth Day is about by making crafts, singing songs, and painting pictures! And so in Science, students made a fish craft from recycled plastic water bottles. Miss Sara twisted the water bottles and helped each child cover their water bottles with colored tissues and googly eyes. It was a good day to reflect on keeping our planet and environment healthy.
The students are learning obedience this month and the Virtue of the Month character education story last week was “Why Do I Have to Make My Bed” by Wade Bradford, illustrated by Johnanna van der Sterre. It’s a fun book about making one’s bed that also teaches students a little about history.
In Movement and Coordination, students learned how to play the game “Red Light, Green Light” to practice the skill of following directions and learn the virtue of obedience.
In Kodaly, students sang and played instruments to songs about Spring. Mrs. Khouw read stories about Palm Sunday and Easter. The class sang “Jesus Died and Rose Again” and “Lord I Lift Your Name on High” to celebrate the victory of Jesus, as well as learned some songs for Mother’s Day.
Parent Tip: It’s never too early to start teaching your little one how to make his or her bed everyday. Teach your child the importance of recycling and taking care of our environment.
