SALEM PRE SCHOOL NEWS, MARCH 2 012
As March rolls around we are usually talking about the weather. I put up my bulletin board showing the lion and the lamb, illustrating how the snowy cold weather (lion) usually gives way to early spring (lamb). Often Easter is celebrated in March adding to the idea of emerging from darkness into light! This year the gentle, wooly lamb has been around all winter. Does that mean we are skipping the “lion” this year, or is the “lion” waiting for March to make it’s entrance?
This year March will not include talk of weather and Easter. We’ll save that for next month. We will begin March learning about our state, Minnesota. Loons, lakes, farms, wilderness areas, and baseball (Twins) are just some of the things we will talk about. We are glad to live in the Northstar State!
Before we have our spring break (March 19-23 ) air and space travel will be our focus. Talk of men walking on the moon was awesome to me as a child. This generation takes it in stride. Living in a space station is the norm. What frontier is next in space? These children will be a part of that adventure! We are constantly expanding our knowledge of God’s world!
March will end with a unit on butterflies, which actually takes us into our Easter theme in April. Let’s hope the “weather lion” doesn’t show up then. We’ll be ready to think about “new life” in Christ and in our gardens by April!
