Waiting for Butterflies and More...

We started our week with a great surprise! We have our guardian Angel again! The children brought a flower to offer to our guardian angel, Sister Cecilia blessed him and we sang his song.

Molly was recognized by the ”Clean Campus Incentive Project” in our wake up morning assembly for always picking up trash and keeping our playground clean, way to go Molly!

To continue the lent season, we planted our sunflowers in the ground. It was quite an experience since some of our little lancers have never smelled the potting soil before. We transferred the chrysalis to the butterfly habitat and we're waiting patiently for the butterflies.

We learned about food that comes from trees. We explored guavas. We made and tasted homemade apple sauce. We also tasted pears and plums.

I Can Wish

Dear Preschool Parents,

The highlights of this week took place during religion class when we talked about ”I Can Wish”. After our discussion, the children made a picture for someone. Brady kindly said, ”My picture is for Fiona”. Other children gave their pictures to their classmates.

As we continue to learn about metamorphosis, we have kept close observation of our caterpillars: they have been growing and are ready to start forming their chrysalis.

In our Tree Study, we learned about animals that live in trees. We explored the trees in our playground and discovered a variety of insects that thrive there.

Each child picked a foam letter for their name to make a "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" tree. They spelled their name and counted how many letters there are in their name.

We learned about Wind and we put together a wind chime that is unique and colorful.

Thank you,

Ms. Bravo and Mrs. Martinez

Spring Is All Around Us

Our Li'l Lancers are BLOOMING like SPRING!!! These past two weeks they've sprouted with bursts of growing activity!!! We are learning about the love, patience, responsibility and dedication that it takes to care for plants by doing some gardening of our own. We planted a variety of seeds and succulents and we also planted our very own pineapple which, if we're lucky enough, we will be able to harvest in about 2-3 years!!!

In our classroom, the children are also fascinated by the spectacular changes they are witnessing day to day: they have seen the tiniest caterpillars as they eat and grow and now they are in the midst of being witnesses of the great life cycle which is METAMORPHOSIS, as they keep very curious and close observation of this phenomenon. We were very blessed to be part of the Inside the Outdoors program where they went on a pretend nature walk to learn about a variety of outdoors creatures. God has truly blessed us with the splurge of growth that we have witnessed as we SPRING INTO SPRING!!!

"I Can Feel"

In religion this week, we talked about “I Can Feel”. We shared feelings like glad, afraid, love, annoyance, and sadness. For our Tree Study, Mathew shared items from his nature walk at home. The children measured each other using non-traditional measuring items like sticks. They also used their tree items that they collected on our nature walk for counting (one-to-one correspondence). They used sticks, leaves, and pine cones. They used sticks to make letters. We enjoyed the weather as the children had fun walking in the rain and sharing umbrellas.

Building and Construction Curiosity

Our Little Lancers were very curious about our buildings study. They wanted to know how the buildings were constructed and what people do inside them. This study offered many opportunities to explore math concepts through buildings firsthand. With the story of The Three little pigs, the children expanded their knowledge and understanding of building materials and physical forces. They also explore concepts in social studies related to shelters, jobs, and the purpose behind different structures; such as homes, schools, airports, or churches.
