Goshen Friends School
Kindergarten Web Page - April 2017
“April showers bring May flowers.” A common verse to invite Spring. The verse also has a connection for the meaning of kindergarten. The name “kindergarten” refers to a garden of children growing. These children are like flowers that are growing and blossoming. The nurturing and care of the children corresponds so perfectly to a beautiful garden of flowers. They have been enriched with new experiences and their journey is abundant.
We will continue this growth and create a balance with mind and body. The highlight this month is our International Week. The countries we will be studying are Brazil, Nepal, and Switzerland. We will learn many aspects about these countries during the month and conclude with our noted and popular “World Café.” Families may join in on the fun and learning experience. During the month we will also acknowledge Earth Day and how each of us can support a clean earth.
April will hop along as the kindergarten children enjoy Spring and learning process it presents in all areas of growth and enrichment.
