Letter Y, yarn, flowers, and more

This week we are looking at the letter Y through sensory exploration of yarn and other media, and spending some time thinking about the emotion ‘jealousy’. The stories about Clara and Bumper , which we are reading over several weeks, help communicate this and other social-emotional topics. Teachers are also gearing up for Earth Day, Mother’s Day, and planning for summer gardening. In fact, four of our teachers are enrolled in a gardening-for-children class this week.
