This month’s theme is transportation. The children will be learning the letters O, V, C, and M in language.

Our young 3 year olds have been busy learning about traffic lights and what each color stands for.
They also had a lot of fun making their own water color paints. They learned that by mixing the colors yellow and blue, it turns into green. After making the water colors, they put the paint in the freezer. The next day, the children used the frozen paints on the sidewalk outside. They learned about cause and effect – as the paint thaws out and starts to melt, they can paint the sidewalk with it. They also had a simple lesson on solids, liquids, and gases. The children discovered that the paint was a liquid when they mixed the paints together with water. They then learned that the paint turned to a solid after it was frozen in the freezer. Finally, they learned that the paint turned into a gas as the paint dried on the sidewalk.
The older 3 year olds have been learning AB patterns using different types of vehicles. They had a blast learning about traffic lights and what the colors represent when they played red light, green light! They have been learning how to be responsible and clean up their toys when they are finished playing.
Our four and five year olds have been busy counting to 10 in French and learning the months of the year in Spanish. They have been working on using their words and using their problem solving skills to solve conflicts between themselves and friends. They have learned that it is important to work together and be a team player.They learned about safe driving and how you should always wear your seat belt. They talked about what a drivers license is and were excited to learn that one day they will have one!
