Welcome to Room A Home of the A1 Owls and the A3 Froggies!
At the end of March, we started learning about animals that lay eggs. We started with chickens, and we decorated some pretty eggs! Next up, we will learn about frog eggs, tadpoles and the development of frogs.
April will be a busy month, and it will be so nice to be able to play outside again. We will celebrate Purple Day- wear purple, make a purple collage, play a purple guessing game and eat a purple snack. We will have live baby caterpillars in class, and we will watch them grow and grow. They will hang upside down and make little “sleeping bags” called chrysalides, and about a week later, we will have Painted Lady Butterflies! They will stay in our classroom for about a week, and then we will release them. It will be fun to see them up close and then see them fly free.
Soon we will celebrate International Week (April 27- April 30.) We will learn more about Ireland, Puerto Rico and Thailand. We will make decorations and go to fun presentations. The “One World Café” is on April 30, and there will be food, activity booths and dancing.
In May, we will have Celebration of Friends Day (May 11 and 12.) It will be wonderful to share songs and snacks with our special visitors.
May 12 is our Clothesline Art Festival. We will have our own art displayed with creations from all the classes in the school.
We will celebrate Yellow Day and make flowers. We will also have Blue Day, 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 the other preschool classes. On May 22 we will go to East Goshen Park and eat and play and have a great time with all our friends!
It is amazing how quickly this school year has flown by. The children have grown so much. It has been a joy to be with them this year.
Happy Spring! Tr. Kim and Tr. Lori
See some of the fun we have been having!
