From the Teachers:
May 5
3’s/4’s Program
This week in Prek 3-4 we learned about gardening. The students were able to plant real flowers in our garden by our playground, they created tulip gardens with forks in paint, they created their own bugs and enjoyed matching ladybugs to the correct numbers.  We read lots of books and learned that our fruits and vegetables grow in gardens.  Students learned a little about the water cycle and how it helps plants to grow and how our water is recycled over and over again.  We learned that bugs help our plants in many ways.  They also became familiar with  the life cycle of a butterfly.  On Friday, students talked about the Kentucky Derby, made and named their own horses, and then they ran a Derby of their own!  

2’s Program
This week in the two's room we talk about gardening and bugs! On Monday we got to paint with plastic bugs to see the different types of tracks they make. On Tuesday we had a fine motor day and sorted seeds and stuck fake flowers into colanders. On Wednesday we got to plant flowers next to our gate and we celebrated Nico's 4th birthday! On Thursday we sorted seeds again and then we painted with bell peppers and broccoli. On Friday we made a garden sticky wall where they added foam flowers and bugs. They love this activity! 
Our Bible story this week was from the Pray and Play Bible 2 - Jesus is With Us. 
Next week we will start counting down to our last day of school and we will be making some special gifts for our moms for Mother's Day!

For as the earth brings forth its sprouts,
    and as a garden causes what is sown in it to sprout up,
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise
    to sprout up before all the nations.

–Isaiah 61:11
