This is sure to be a fun week.  This is our Construction Week.  We will be construction workers, engineers, architects, etc.  We will work with a variety of blocks to create and build our own structures.  In addition, we will use our imaginations and fantastic art skills to draw out our plans as we work in teams to construct our masterpieces.  May 1st is the Feast Day of Saint Joseph the Worker.  We will be talking about his life.  Our letter this week will be "Y". Throughout the month of May we will be learning about the many different animal families.  This week we will be talking about Insects.

This week we will be learning about Reptiles and Amphibians.  We will be exploring and learning about all the animals which live in ponds.  We will talk about the life cycle of the frog, and we will be making a frog life cycle wheel.  Our letter for this week is the letter "Z".
