Preschool Prep Program

April 2015


The theme for the month of April was “Growing Things ~ Plants”. The concepts of this month were exploring beans and seeds and learning new vocabulary and concepts, such as: roots, seeding, stem, caring for living things, earth day, caring for our environment.

Our goal for the month was to improve skills of listening, following directions and awareness of others in the shared space.

We prepared various creative art, tactile sensory, and  manipulative activities to achieve these goals.
