This Month…


In May, the study will shift from plants to babies! They will be looking at the needs and characteristics of animal and human babies. Their knowledge will be related to themselves and possible younger siblings as well as to their pervious plant study in terms of similarities and differences in their needs to survive and grow.


The questions we will be focusing on:

  • What do human babies need?
  • What can we learn about animal babies?
  • How do babies change?


Art with Ms. Clark


In Art we have been working with clay and Model Magic along with materials from nature as part of our “Plants” unit. Soon, we will begin our “Babies” unit by making texture collages of animals.


I am excited to share some news about two of our Little Brooklyn Pre-K artists:


Alma Bacharach (Class 114) is a P.S. Art 2018 winner! Her artwork was selected from over 1,200 entries to be included in the P.S. Art 2018 exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art from June to October.


Ava Wright (Class 116) was accepted into the 2018 Brooklyn Borough Arts Festival! Her artwork will be part of the Visual Arts Exhibition at Brooklyn Borough Hall in May.


Warm regards,

Ms. Clark
