 This month our Pre-K for All unit of study focuses on sources of LIGHT. 

Our Essential Question: How and Why Do We Use Different Kinds of Light?

The students will learn:  

*There are many types of lights in our homes and our cities.                       

*Light helps us to see and also stay warm.   

*Light helps plants grow.

*When there is little and no light it is dark.

*Shadows appear when an object blocks the light.

A LOOK INTO OUR ADVENTURE THIS PAST MONTH…

This past month our theme was TRANSPORTATION.  Within our center we took a deeper look into the different types of transportation around us and the people who steer them.  Some of the things we did: In the math center we used transportation counters to practice patterns and used shapes to create our own kind of transportation.  In science we took recyclable items and created our very own vehicles.  In our blocks area we created a special train track for our trains to travel and roads for all our transportation vehicles to travel on.  In art we introduced the children to Monet paintings of different kinds of boats and had the children create their boat painting.

We are looking forward to our next theme: LIGHT!
