This week we started exploring our learning unit on animals, insects and reptiles. The classes had an exciting visit from the Lizard Guys, where the children were able to see lizards, snakes, turtles and spiders up close and learn about their habitats. The children were even able to pet a python or anaconda snake! The children were also introduced to the letter Ll and the Ll sound!
The children began to learn about the lifecycle of a butterfly. Our caterpillars arrived in the classroom this week and the children have been observing their growth. The children used their number recognition skills, to working in teams, to make a caterpillar numbered from 1-10. On Thursday the children went for a hands-on nature walk where they were able to observe the signs of spring and collect flowers, pine cones, rocks, leaves and more!
Mother nature allowed the children many opportunities to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather this week! On Friday the children even had an outdoor picnic, eating their snack outside and playing many games together!
