Weekly Letter 4.8.22 

Family Engagement 4.8.22

This week we read The Curious Garden by Peter Brown. It’s a story where a little boy finds some isolated plants growing on abandoned railway tracks. He takes it upon himself to become the gardener and help the garden flourish! The children learned that this story is based on the true curious garden, High Line Park in NYC.

The children created their own curious gardens by building them in the Block Center. They added trees, flowers, and plants of their own creation to it. We will continue this activity next week!

In the Science Center, we continued to watch our seeds for growth and record in our journals. We can’t wait to see our garden of fruits, vegetables, and flowers grow!

Next week we will begin assembling our classroom flower shop in the Dramatic Play Center!

In the coming weeks we will continue to explore different kinds of plants, such as cactus, evergreen, succulent, and herbs!
