Math

  • Measurement - using terms such as small, big, short, tall, empty, full, heavy and light

Science

  • Observing and describing characteristics of living things

Social Studies

  • Discussing how people grow and change over time

Home Connections

  • Please send in a baby photo of your child for a special project.  Photos will be returned or you can email the photo to your child’s teacher. 
  • Look at family photos together and talk about how family members have grown and changed. 
  • Please visit the Butterfly Conservatory Exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History going on until May 27th.  Also, the Butterfly Garden at the Bronx Zoo is open from now through October.  In addition, visit a local zoo and talk about how animals grow and change.
