As I am writing this Newsletter I am realizing that we have only 5 more weeks of preschool left before our year will end. Where did the time go? I guess we have been so busy all year that time simply started to fly!
Spring is in full swing and we are exploring the change of seasons with many “hands on” activities. Our students planted grass seeds on a “dirt head”. All they have to do now is spraying the seeds with water and waiting for the “grass hair” to grow.
LIFE CYCLE OF A BUTTERFLY
Our main theme for May will be bugs. I ordered caterpillars that are still in the larvae stage, and our children will be able to watch the entire life cycle of a butterfly over the upcoming weeks. By the end of the month there should be 12 chrysalises hanging in our butterfly cage. If we are lucky, the butterflies will be hatching during class time and the children will get to eyewitness the transformation from caterpillar into butterfly.
Every year I get very sentimental when we release the butterflies and let them fly. It just reminds me of our preschool children that have grown so much over the last 9 months.
