CURRICULUM UPDATE

     We continued our unit studying cars with lots of enthusiasm. The kids  had a wonderful time creating, and then playing with the red cardboard car in our dramatic play area. It was a great wrap-up project as it helped us review what we learned last week about car parts, and car types. It also served as a way for us to extend our learning this week as we discussed ways to maintain a car. The kids "washed" and "squeegeed" it, pumped up the car tires, and pumped gas for the car. We also played a game to learn how to follow car rules and then made our own car drivers license.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!
