Weekly Theme: Robots (January 31-February 4, 2022)
It's the week we've all been waiting for: Robot Week! We have a lot of great new books we'll be reading, including Pete the Cat: Robo-Pete by James Dean, Boy and Bot by Ame Dyckman, The Three Little Aliens and the Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara, and Robots, Robots Everywhere by Sue Fliess.
The Preschool and Pre-K will practice identifying the beginning, middle, and end of stories and talk about problem solving. As well, they will be making their own robots and working to put together three letter words. They will get the chance to make numbers out of Play-Doh and then copy the numbers onto to paper, too.
Our toddlers have been collecting boxes and will be creating their own giant robot!
The first humanoid robot was built in 1939; it was seven feet tall and could speak 700 words! To put that in perspective, on average, a preschooler knows 1500 words.
