In kindergarten, our current theme is ladybugs. Mrs. Milne gave the children live ladybugs in science to take home and observe before letting them go. Some of the activities we have done have been collage ladybugs, ladybug apple snacks, observational drawings. We launched our first letter study (Ll) and made finger painted large leaves in the style of Eric Carle (whose books we have been reading, beginning with "The Grouchy Ladybug") incorporating science mini-lesson on mixing colors as well.
The children began learning about things such as life cycles and symmetry which will be revisited.
