Hello Lila Parents,
May was full of events here in Lila. It was great to see you all at the student led visit last month. The children were so excited to “show and teach” you some of the lessons they have been working on in the classroom.
The sunny days were a great excuse for us to eat picnic lunches on the Lila Patio and visits to the nature trail!
Our classroom ladybugs and butterflies made it through their metamorphosis and we released them back into nature. The whole process of caring for them and watching them grow was a great learning experience for the children. They were sad to let them go but also understood why they had to be let go.
We continued with our study of the Human body with an introduction to our “Skin”. We talked about the layers of skin and the functions of our skin. We also went into details about the process of Condensation and Precipitation.
In Art, Ms. Michelle built on some of her earlier lessons and did some mixed media art with the children.
In Spanish, the children are learning the names of the different parts of the body and the children absolutely love the song “Baila Baila” that Ms. Sonja has been teaching them.
In Music, Ms. Amy has been teaching them the song “Peace like a River”. The children are learning the song and practicing it with sign language.
In June, we will talk about Nutrition and bring our yearlong learning about the human body to conclusion. We will also talk about the changing season and “Summer”. In Botany, we will continue our study of the parts of the plant and focus on “fruit”.
Can’t believe we are almost towards the end of school year! The year has really flown by!
I look forward to seeing you all at the Carnival in June.
