Welcome to the Purple Room

3-5 year-old Preschool for All/ Project Child

Purple Room Newsletter

April

We are still finishing up with the children’s books.  They are really enjoying sharing their books with their classmates and even having an activity to go along with them.

Spring is finally here, I can feel it and so can the kids.  We will be introducing plants, butterflies and even starting our own garden in the month of April.  We will be teaching the anatomy of butterflies and plants, seeing how plants grow, measuring water when watering our seeds, so lots of science and math.  We will also go on a Spring walk to explore and see what spring flowers and nature we can find.

If you see “Week of the Young Child” in our dates section, that is something we do every year that we love in our classroom.  Monday is music related, Tuesday is Tasty Tuesday where we will cook and taste a dish, Wednesday is working together, Thursday is art, and Friday is family day.  We will be doing a picnic on that day, so look for an invitation and hope you can join us in our side yard.
