Classroom Happenings- April
Our book reports have come to an end. Thank you again to all of our fabulous guest readers. It is so special for you to take time out of your busy schedule o share your child’s special story with us. Miss Robin and Miss Dannette are looking forward to sharing their favorite books as we wrap up our book project. Thank you to all of our fabulous helpers that helped on our field trip to Healthworks.
Did you know that Discovery School has a garden? We will be planting vegetable seeds and taking care of them to help them grow (watering and weeding).
We will also be watching our caterpillars (coming soon) grow into butterflies.
April 16-20, we will be celebrating the Week of the Young Child. We have a special activity each day that week. April 16th will be Music Monday. We will use instruments to accompany our songs, find rhythms, and rhyming words. April 17th will be Tasty Tuesday. We will taste test some healthy orange colored snacks. Please wear orange that day! April 18th we will take a nature walk, weather permitting. We will walk to the park to see what we can find.
Spring parent/teacher conferences are optional. If you have any concerns about your child starting kindergarten or just want to touch base about your child’s progress, please let Miss Dannette know and we can schedule a meeting!
Ms. Dannette graduated from SIUE with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education. She taught 5th grade for 3 years before starting a family. All three of her children are Discovery School graduates. She started teaching at Discovery as a substitute in 2014 when her youngest child was in her second year at Discovery. She is excited to be in a classroom and really enjoys watching the children learn through plan and hands on experiences.
Ms. Robin earned her B.A. in Education in 1998 and a Master’s in Education in 2003 from UNLV in Las Vegas, NV. For 5 years, she worked as an elementary school teacher in the Clark County School District. In 2005, Robin and her husband moved to his hometown of O’Fallon. They have two beautiful children that are both Discovery School graduates. She has always loved teaching and enjoys coming to work each day and seeing the smiling faces at Discovery.
