During the month of March, all classrooms are excitedly exploring the theme “Favorite Children’s Authors.” These authors include: Eric Carle, Bill Martin, Jr., Dr. Seuss, Mercer Mayer and Denise Flemming. The Kindergarten Enrichment class had a lot of fun during the Eric Carle week making a “spider web” after reading The Very Busy Spider. Who knows what we’ll spin up in the weeks to come!!
In our preschool programs we recently explored the occupations of different “Community Helpers.” During this week we had a visit from a local dentist office as well as one of our grandparents who is a postal worker.
