Welcome to Room AHome of the A1 Owls and the A3 Froggies!
April is going to be a buggy adventure! We will be learning about caterpillars, butterflies and other crawly critters. We will make a hungry caterpillar craft and create some beautiful butterflies. We will even have real caterpillars in our classroom. It will be amazing to see them change into butterflies!
We will continue learning about other countries, and it will be great to have a presentation from a parent that is from Sri Lanka. We will get to make elephant puppets for a parade!
Pajama Day is coming, and it will be a blast to wear jammies to school. We will bring a stuffed toy from home to share the day with us.
Purple is our color for April. We will wear purple, create with purple and eat purple food!
International Week is at the end of the month (April 29-May 2). We will learn about Japan and make carp kites.
Celebration of Friends Day is on May 6 and 7. It will be wonderful to share songs and snacks will our special visitors.
May 7 is the Art Show for our school. We will have our own art displayed with creations from all the classes in the school.
Our color for the month will be blue, a perfect color for our unit on the ocean, the beach and all the wonderful life in and around the sea!
We will end our terrific year with a beach themed party, and we will wear bathing suits to school! Some fun water games are planned.
Lastly, we will have a picnic with all the other preschool classes. We will go to East Goshen Park and eat and play and have a great time with all our friends!
There is so much to look forward to in April and May. It is amazing how quickly this school year has flown by. We are going to finish up with a bunch of fun!
Enjoy!Tr. Kim and Tr. Amy
We were really busy this past month of November (better named by one child as Notober.) We had Yellow Day and Brown Day, with fun colored food, collages and games. We focused on thankfulness and what good things in our lives we were grateful for. Each child listed many important things, and these dictations went on paper turkey feathers. Then we decorated a big preschool turkey with all the other preschool classes. All of our “thankful feathers” made our turkey extra special. We also shared a fruit salad Friendship Feast with all of our preschool friends, and talked about the importance of sharing. Our left over fruit went to help feed people in need.
The A1 class had special visitors. Parents (originally from India) came and taught us about the celebration of Diwali- the Festival of Lights. We enjoyed sweet treats and making beautiful Rangoli patterns.
In December, the A3 class will enjoy special parent presentations on Sinterklaas and Hanukkah. Both classes will be learning about the celebrations and traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We will be practicing our songs for our Holiday Show, baking cookies, spinning dreidels and making gifts for our families. We will also have Red Day with fun red activities.
January will be cold, so please make sure to send your child to school with mittens and a hat. We may even need snow suits and boots! Speaking of snow, we will be learning about snow and ice. We will make some “indoor snow” and create our own Snowmen. Obviously, this month we will have White Day (to go with the snow!) We will also talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. and encourage everyone to participate in acts of service on Jan. 21.
We are having so much fun in Room A, and all the upcoming events and holidays are going to be GREAT!
Enjoy the fun of the season!

Opportunities to lead are abundant and Goshen students are encouraged to embrace these opportunities. Students who learn leadership skills early in their academic careers grow to be confident and compassionate leaders.
