The Hungry Caterpillar is a favorite book to many. At the end of the month we plan to perform a short skit and entertain Pre-K class!

The 'Bee Bot' is a computer that the students will learn to program on a floor size graph! This will be a hands on activity which is challenging and provides opportunity to incorporate both reading and math. It is an excellent learning tool which is FUN!!
