The month of April will begin with the Bunny Brunch. Some healthy food and an opportunity to use good table manners is the focus.
Teacher Tom and his dog Gus will visit and discuss caring for animals. This event has helped teach the class mindfulness and provides tools for other experiences related to understanding self and others.
April and May bring such spring beauty. We will learn about trees, flowers, our environment, and animals during this wonderful time of the year.
Metamorphosis will be a topic of study as we observe tadpoles and caterpillars. The highlight for April will be our preparation for International Week. The countries we are studying are the Philippines, South Korea, and Guatemala. The kindergarten class will focus on the Philippines and learn about their flag, natural resources, and the jeepney bus used to get around the capital city of Manila. Our class will enjoy making our own jeepney for display at the “One World Café.” May brings Friend Day and the Art Festival. Kindergarten will create a “Monet Their Way” painting for display at the Art Festival. Friends and family will enjoy the creativity. We will also observe the hatching of baby chicks.
April and early May will be a busy and eventful time to share with our community. Enjoy the beauty and work of the children.
