April 2013: Insects and Spiders
The experiences planned during this month should focus on insects and spiders. Many people think that spiders are insects, but they are very diffferent animals. This theme will look at both insects and spiders in a effort to help the children understand how they are alike and how they are different and how many of them help our world to be a better place. For example, without spiders eating mosquitoes and other biting insects we would be in a terrible fix.
The color of the month is shades of green:
The shape of the month is Rectangle-the shape with four sides, two sides are equal and shorter than the other two sides that are equal and longer.
The letters of the month are Xx.
