Miss Cindy’s class learned numbers and counting with this spring flower activity. We identified the numbers, counted out that many beads, counted them again as we put them on the pipe cleaner stems just to be sure, then we put the numbers in order and last we counted the flowers as we pointed to each number! So much math and fun in one activity! And fine motor skills too! Happy spring baby Cardinal families!

This month Miss Kelly's Preschooler's have been reading fairy tales. They created the Three Little Pigs houses and have been practicing acting out the story! This week they learned The Three Billy Goats Gruff and are now acting out this story! It's a great way to learn sequencing and story retell (great prereading skills). Before Easter weekend they did a STEM actively to see how high they could stack plastic Easter eggs using only playdough to stick them together! It proved harder than it looked! Next month they will learn about Spring and growing!
