It’s time for “Awesome Animals!” Children love animals so our newtheme is an excellent way to help them learn about thecharacteristics of different kinds of animals,
animal homes, and animal life cycles, which are all importantconcepts in science.
There are many things you and your child can do together toexplore the world
• Start with your own pet, if you have one, to teach your childabout pet needs and pet care.
• Talk about the animals you see around your home. Observe whatthey look like, where
they live, what they eat, and how they move.
• Teach safety rules for being around animals.
• Identify the animals you see in books and on the computer and
television so your child will learn animal names.
In this theme, we will also focus on developing the ability to payattention. Encourage children to increase their attention byspending time focusing on the natural world together. This will bemany children’s favorite theme, so talk with them every day aboutwhat they are doing and learning. Teach your child to be kind toanimals!
Thank you in advance for all your support and we are looking forward to an outstanding year!
