I would like to send a special thanks to Joy (Ruby’s mom) for donating the Eric Carle floor puzzle and being our guest reader the children really enjoyed it.
CHANGE IN CURRICULUM
We have however decided to take a detour from our Eric Carle Author/Illustrator study we pick the study up in late March/early April. I decided to change topics to Fairy Tales (mainly because the children are still talking about The Gingerbread Boy/Man/Girl and the Fox and the Winter weather did not produce as much snow as we would have like ;-)) in which we will study the various versions of The 3 Little Pigs and Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We will begin the study with The 3 Little Pigs and then move onto the Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. If you have a unique or favorite version that you would like to read to the class or allow us to borrow the book we would really appreciate it.
In honor and memory of Jane Averill who dedicated so much time and energy to our school and especially to our preschool program, we will spend time listening to jazz music and reading about jazz musicians this month Ms. Jane always loved music and spent a great deal of time exposing her students to various jazz musicians. Jane’s ability to tell an awe intriguing story and love of music will live on here at Ray Preschool.
We will pick our Eric Carle Author/illustrator study later this spring and tie it to our gardening/butterfly unit.
