Pre-K for All

Dear Pre-K Families,

This month our unit of study is all about plants. The children will learn how plants grow and why they are important. They will learn that plants are living things and each part of a plant has an important function. The children will discover that we eat plants too. Finally, since we are in the spring season we will be able to go on a nature walk around the school block to observe the flowers sprouting and leaves growing on the trees again.
