Preschool for the week of October 12-16

This week we will learn about bug homes. As the children learn about bug homes, they realize that bugs are similar to us and need shelter, too. They will learn that these homes are all unique because they are built to help protect from predators, make or catch food and give shelter from the weather. They will also reflect on their own households and how their families work together to help one another. We will learn the letter Nn, the color orange and continue to practice writing our names.
