April 2019 Preschool Press
￼￼￼￼Mrs. Julie’s Preschool 4s
During April, we will be learning about the life cycle of a butterfly and frog, celebrate Week of the Young Child, and talk about Pets and the Weather.
If you ever have any questions about anything, please let me know. My email is [email protected].
￼￼￼￼What Are We Learning
We will continue to review all the letters with an alphabet caterpillar, an Easter Alphabet Hunt, and alphabet Puppy Chow. We will also be writing words related to butterflies and families. We will also be focusing on writing our first and last names.
The children will be jumping on numbered lily pads, egg number tracing, counting jelly beans, making a dog with shapes, and lacing beads on numbered rainbows.
This month, we will be watching real caterpillars turn into butterflies as we learn about the butterfly life cycle. We will also play with Peeps Playdough, and watch it rain in a jar.
For Fine Motor, we will continue to practice writing our names, lacing beads, and painting with Q-Tips. For Gross Motor, we will be doing a Frog Jump, dance on newspaper, Easter Eggs-ercises, and Easter Bunny Freeze Dance.
