Classroom Spotlight: Ladybugs
The Ladybugs have been very busy over the past several months. Recently, we dove into our spring unit where the kiddos enjoyed talking about different springtime activities, learning about the lifecycle and the different parts of a flower, and looking at seeds through a magnifying glass. We’ve gone on a few springtime walks thanks to the beautiful weather. We always enjoy our time outside, especially now that everything is starting to bloom—the kiddos have been especially excited about the recent transformation of bulbs turned flowers in our garden.
Up next is our Community Helpers unit, which has always been a class favorite! We are excited to welcome back Firefighter Dave to learn about fire safety (and try on all of that really cool, really big firefighter gear!)
Something else we’ve been working hard on is Collaboration Stations. The Ladybugs and Caterpillars have teamed up for the second year to form several small groups with kiddos working together from each classroom. Every week a new activity is introduced based on different developmental domains. With these groups comes routine—opening song, feelings board, thematic song/movement, activity, and cleanup and closing song. All of the kiddos are thriving during these small group interactions, and it’s become one of our favorite parts of the day!
I’m so proud of all of our kiddos. Each has made such wonderful progress since August. We’re looking forward to finishing these last few months on a high note!
