Looking Back…

We are enjoying all things Srping! We watered our seeds and watched them grow into plants.  The weather finally got nice enough to plant them in our garden.  We learned the parts of a plant and got to see the roots of our plants up close when we were transplanting our flowers and vegetables.  We have been practicing patterning in math and many of our friends have mastered the ABC pattern.  Our cutting skills have really improved.  Have you seen our colorful chain?

What’s New?

We will also be watching our caterpillars (coming soon) grow into butterflies.  Keeping with our Spring theme we will be making “kites” and flying them on the side yard soon.

April 8th-12th we will be celebrating the Week of the Young Child.  We have a special activity each day that week.

Tuesday April 9th- Tasty Tuesday

We will work with our Green Room friends to make a healthy snack.  There will be a donation sign up coming soon!

Wednesday April 10th- Wear Orange for our nature walk.  Weather permitting we will walk to the park and do a scavenger hunt with our Green Room friends.
