Classroom Happenings-April


It is hard to believe that we only have two months left of this school year.  April is here with a lot of things happening in the classroom.  We have closed our doctor’s office, and it will return the original housekeeping area.

We will begin talking about Spring, weather, and bugs/insects.  The month will have additions to the classroom in the science area such as caterpillars/butterflies and worms to observe.  We will also be planting in our section of the new garden boxes.

We will continue sharing our letter bags with the class on Fridays.  The letter bag will have a letter written on it.  You and your child will find something in your home that begins with that letter sound.  Then, your child will share that object with the class during the day.

Please be sure to look at our bulletin boards for pictures and information!
