BOOK OF THE MONTH Daniel, Phoebe and Isaac toss the soft balls into the basket, oh what fun! This month our preschoolers will enjoy reading, Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Scott Magoon. “He’s always been a happy little utensil. But lately, he feels like life as a spoon just isn’t cutting it. He thinks Fork, Knife, and Chopsticks all have it so much better than he does. But do they?” Check it out! INFANTS & TODDLERS Everything a young child knows about the world is learned through one of the five senses. This month our infants and toddlers will be exploring seeing, touching, hearing, tasting and smelling. They will look at different shapes, sizes, and colors. By touching, infants and toddlers learn about the world through their fingers and toes. Our children will have the opportunity to sense cool and warm, soft and hard, smooth and bumpy, wet and dry, even before they can speak the words. They will learn that the ear is the organ through which they hear sounds. They’ll learn shake, jingle, boom, bump and clap. Two other ways infants and toddlers learn about their world is through their sense of taste and smell. They’ll explore hot, warm, and cool, and learn about their mouth, tongue and nose. Watch out for our independent centers that highlight the senses! NC Museum of Natural Science This month the museum presents, Tropical Treasures. Where are the tropics?
