Spring Is Here!
May You All Be Healthy!
Melissa and I send you and your family our love and positive thoughts during this very difficult time. We are authorized to stay open under the Essential Services Provision and continue to use safe sanitation and health practices. The children are getting lots of practice washing their hands!
It is a week of enjoying preschool and learning fun. Math Monday is a favorite as it includes Starfish Store where items may be purchased by solving a simple math problem or counting. Tuesdays and Thursdays are focused on learning reading basics and phonics. Wednesdays are Wacky Science where experiments are created and observations made. Friday is Fun Day where free play and the letter hunt are the highlights.
It is also time to be planting our pea patch. Each child will have their own little garden to plant, care for and watch grow. Favorites plants to grow include peas, red runner beans, potatoes, strawberries and pumpkins. We also plant sunflowers and nasturtiums. There is a lot to do in the spring!
Outdoor play time is full of fun and games, hide and seek, sharks and minnows, freeze tag... Digging holes is a popular activity. You never know what you might find! Learning about nature and playing outside is a favorite with all the children.
"Play is the highest form of research" Albert Einstein
Children are happiest when playing...just doing their research and exploring their imaginations! We make playtime a priority at Little Starfish!
