Hello from Room B, where teachers can hardly believe it's May! In some ways, it feels like September was just here and we were making new friends and learning new routines. But when I see how the children have grown and become so close, I realize how many wonderful days we've had together.
We celebrated our planet throughout the month of April through various art, science and gardening activities. We made flowers from egg cartons and cupcake liners, and then grew our own grass seed in hollowed egg shells. The children love to trim and water their grass!
We've been very busy making flower vases from watercolor paper and painting T-shirts for the Clothesline Arts Festival. We talked about the many ways we can reduce, reuse and recycle and made a structure from recycled paper and plastic from home. And we really loved hunting for and identifying plastic bugs hiding in our classroom sensory tub.
Here are a few important dates coming up in May:• May 2 – One World Café at 5:30 p.m. by the lower school building and playground• May 6 – Celebration of Friends Day for B1 at 10:30 a.m. in the meeting house• May 7 – Celebration of Friends Day for B3 at 10:30 a.m. in the meeting house• May 7 – Clothesline Arts Festival from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. by the lower school building• May 22 – Last day of school and class party for B1• May 23 – Last day of school and class party for B3• May 24 – Preschool picnic from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at East Goshen Township ParkWe look forward to seeing you during these last fun days of the school year!
