May News from Extreme STEAM Science Kids

Happy Spring!

This past month has been a lot of fun in the science lab. Since we have had so much rain lately we decided to investigate how rain falls. We all enjoyed making our rain clouds and filling it with “rain” and seeing it fall out of the cloud! We had a great time learning about the solar system and enjoyed mixing and painting with our very special moon dust.

We then went on to our planting unit. We enjoyed examining the plants and were able to name the parts of the plant. We learned how some plants came from seeds and some could self-root. Since the weather was uncooperative we decided to plant indoors. I hope the vegetables your children planted are growing well and are almost ready to be planted outdoors!

May News from the Computer Science Lab

Dear Park Shore Families,

Happy Spring! I hope this note finds you all well!

As we quickly approach the end of the school year, I am amazed by your children’s enthusiasm and love of learning! Brilliantly colored springtime pictures created by your children are displayed all over the computer lab walls, and the children enter the classroom happy and excited to see what’s in store for them!

Wrapping up the alphabet is bittersweet for me as we have SO MUCH fun watching and singing along with the learning videos – “Get ready, get set, let’s learn about the alphabet!” Using stories and pictures to reinforce letter and sound recognition is such a great tool for the young minds. Over the course of the next few weeks we will be focusing on programs to review alphabetical order, letter and letter sound recognition. We will also be working on numbers and adding for the older children.

I have introduced a few new programs this past month, inclusive of more advanced jigsaw puzzles and online lego building games. These programs help to develop critical thinking skills while keeping the children entertained.
