Welcome to the first week of our new unit, Unit 5: Growing our Garden! If we were in school, we would be spending the next few weeks digging for worms, planting seeds, learning about farms and how things grow. And although we miss your faces, we are going to do our best to make sure you have as much fun as possible. So get ready for some fun with all of your preschool teachers!
Parents, we hope this is something that you will enjoy doing at home. We have tried to create lessons that are easy to prep and help your children be as independent as possible. Our idea is to send you plans ahead of time so that you can gather materials that they will need for each day’s lesson. We will then send out a video for you to turn on for your child. We, of course, appreciate any and all feedback from you as we go digital!
Songs for the Week: Parents, these can be played every day
