Our May Theme:
Season of Renewal
Spring has arrived & is in full force! It’s time for us to talk about bugs, bullfrogs & butterflies… and to discover the science, beauty, poetry and songs of nature’s renewal! This is our traditional theme to celebrate the merry month of May!
The sun has returned, and we can study the new life that it brings: plants that grow from seeds, bulbs, beans, pits and grains… and plants that awaken from dormancy… animals born alive and well, animals that arrive in eggs, animals that transform in curious life-cycles, and animals that awaken from a long Winter’s nap. We’ll also examine the creepy crawly world of insects that come around our yards and ‘bug’ us… and we’ll admire the flowers that bloom in the Spring.
We can finally dance and run around outside, and enjoy some Spring sports. And when we need a rest, we can relax and reflect on the Four Seasons with Vivaldi. We always admire the flowers that bloom in the Spring. Colors come in both pastels and vivid hues as we study paintings of cherry blossoms and daffodils, and perhaps landscapes of greening fields.
Who can resist the stories and poetry celebrating this “Season of Renewal”? The fairies and gnomes have this one covered. But baby bunnies and runaway bunnies get into the act, too
