The preschoolers started their day by drawing in their notebooks. We haven’t done this in a while and the preschoolers were happy to have a free write/draw!
During circle time, we noticed that the caterpillars we had hanging around our classroom had turned into a chrysalis. We read a story to help us better understand what this meant. We learned that while in the chrysalis the caterpillar undergoes a change called metamorphosis (the preschoolers had fun with this word). We discussed that when the caterpillar comes out, it is no longer a caterpillar but a beautiful butterfly. After the story, we took sometime to “act out” each stage that we learned about. The preschoolers had so much fun with this.
Our project of the day was a continuation from Tuesday. We decorated some wings so that we could help our caterpillars completely transform into butterflies. The preschoolers used two coffee filters and dobbers to make this happen! They were so excited to see their final product.
An ABC activity we did today was to build the letter W out of toothpicks. The preschoolers put glue to trace the W and then built the rest with the toothpicks. This is a great fine motor activity and a great way for preschoolers to be active in their learning!
If you have not yet turned in your re-enrollment forms, be sure to do before May 6th to get $100 re-enrollment fee. After May 6th, the fee jumps to $175.
Have a great evening!
