Welcome to the Green Room

Classroom Happenings – April

What a wonderful March we had…it was a fun month of learning and growing in the Green Room.

We had the best pizza project in our room!  Making pizzas with Miss Britney from The Place and having her answer our “Questions for a Master Pizza Maker” was the perfect way to wrap up our pizza project.  Thank you for all your donations and support!

We did science experiments to learn about the wind, its strength, and its direction by making parachutes and launching them into the sky.  We learned about wind carrying heavy versus light objects by using a fan and measuring the distance the objects blew across the room.  This helped us with our prediction, measurement, and counting skills.

We enjoyed learning about rainbows and how they are formed with sun and rain coming together to create this beautiful sight.  We used Skittles and different liquids to see what would happen to the colors through the process of dissolution.

We are continuing to learn our letters through writing and learning activities, reading words and sight words, and extending patterns in math.

Our field trip to Healthworks Kids’ Museum was so much fun and a wonderful learning experience for the children and the adults.

During this upcoming month of April, we will be focusing on growing vegetables and herbs in our outdoor garden boxes, learning about weather, creating a farmer’s market in dramatic play, and starting to learn about the life cycle of a butterfly through varied activities.  We look forward to getting our classroom butterflies at the beginning of the month.

Green Team

Ms. Heather has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Virginia Tech.  She loves beach time, traveling the world, hiking and skiing with her two sons, Conner and Collin.

She feels reading to children is the greatest gift to give them.  As Dr. Seuss said, “the more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go”!

 

Ms. Jasmine has just completed her  Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.   For the last four years I have been working in an accredited center.  Prior to working for the center I was a nanny and babysat for families in my community.  I very much still enjoy babysitting in my free time.  I have a spontaneous two year old that keeps most of my time occupied.  What I enjoy the most is traveling with my family and skating with my son.
