Students in Mrs. Layaou’s preschool class recently participated in a New Year thematic unit. Math lessons centered on the calendar, numbers, the clock, and identifying and counting numbers backward. Art lessons included painting fireworks, creating New Year hats, and making noise shakers. Creative writing lessons involved dictating New Year goals or resolutions, as well as printing practice. Social Studies lessons included customs and traditions of New Year celebrations.
