Gingerbread Man

For the month of December the theme in the preschool will be the Ginger
bread Man.
This is a fun unit that the children enjoy and the teachers love teaching. I think one of the best
things about this teaching unit is all of the fun literature that goes along with it. There are several books that are read through out the unit that are all associated with the story of the Gingerbread Man. The children love hearing the different versions and have a lot of fun comparing and contrasting the differences in the books. Here are just a few of the program's favorites. Take a trip to the Burlington Public Library and see if you can find other versions to read. Have your child tell you how t
hey are the same and how they are different. You will be amazed at how well they can do this.

No School on Monday

School will be closed on Monday for professional development. The staff of the Burlington Integrated Preschool will be spending the day with Dr. Hanley, BCBA, to discuss anti bullying legislation and how it relates to preschool. We will spend much of the day discussing social skill development and conflict resolution.
