themes for preschool

The afternoon teacher and I went out for lunch at the end of the school year and planned out our themes for the 2012-2013 school year.  I thought I would share them with you, so here goes:

August:  Family and About Me

September:  Community Helpers

October:  Fall

November:  Fairy Tales

December:  Winter (also Jan Brett author study)

January:  Construction/Transportation

February:  At Night

March:  Animals (Zoo for two weeks; Ocean for two)

April:  Farm

May:  Spring/Plants/Insects

(These dates are not exact, but I thought it would be simpler to present our themes month by month.)  For science, we will do one theme per quarter, and they are as follows:  1st quarter — Five Senses and the Body; 2nd quarter — Water; 3rd quarter — Building Structures; 4th quarter — Plants.  For math, we will use the Growing With Mathematics curriculum, and plug it in week by week.
