Changes to the Environment 

For large motor work, we will use the parachute to make birds fly! For small motor work we will open and close plastic eggs to find what’s inside. For art, we will work with multi-colored crayons. For our sensory work this week, we will take turns bringing bird seed out to the bird feeder. Our construction play this week will be the duplos. Our dramatic play area will feature a bird watching station.
