Our baby caterpillars have arrived in time for Spring. We have been observing the changes for this week. The kids saw very tiny caterpillars, as the days go by the kids saw the caterpillars getting bigger. We read the book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.”
Next week we will be making egg carton caterpillars, butterflies and discussing the changes of the caterpillars.
We had a grand old time with lots of green all around.
Practicing staying safe is an important part of our preschool curriculum. This includes periodic fire/earthquake drills. On Thursday, March 11 the entire preschool took part in a fire drill. Everyone exited the preschool to muster up in the preschool parking lot for a quick headcount. The children did a fantastic job listening to teachers and we had an incredibly smooth drill. Great work everyone!
Black history Month is an annual observance for the remembrance of significant people and events in African American history.
With our young kids we decided to introduce them to Garret Morgan by introducing the traffic sign. Red means “STOP,” “GREEN,” “YELLOW,” very, very slow. We introduced the song “Tweekle, tweenkle traffic light.
We shared the history of how Garett Morgan worked very hard as a handyman at a young age. He continued his education and became very prosperous as a sewing machine repairman with his own clothing manufacturing business.
Then we read them a little introduction about Garret Morgan’s inventions. He invented the traffic lights as he saw too many accidents happening. He also invented the gas mask and was known for perfecting the sewing machines belt. By coincidence, while oiling the sewing machine, he discovered that the oil can also make his hair soft.
