May Curriculum Theme:

Let’s Pretend

Imagination is one of the most special tools of a young child. This month, children will go on a guided tour of their minds by pretending to be their favorite animals, book characters, and community helpers.  We’ll use our voices, bodies, and ideas to go on many adventures without ever leaving the comfort of our classrooms.  We’ll also have a chance to practice our emotions and learn how to handle feelings and social situations before they happen. Our exploration is only limited by what we think of next.
