Classroom Happenings-April



This last month, we learned about the weather.  We made our own clouds with shaving cream and glue, and we created the colors of the rainbow with watercolors and paper towels.  We learned how a rain cloud forms while doing an experiment with shaving cream and blue watercolor paint.

Then, we played an animal matching game where we matched the adult to its baby.  We also made a graph of which animal we liked best.  We made bird nests using paper bowls and magic clay for the eggs.  We also did bell pepper stamping using green paint.

We ended the month learning about feelings and emotions.  We grouped pictures based on whether they were happy, sad, silly, or mad.  We did an egg hunt in the classroom.  Each egg held a picture of an emotion/feeling.  We made a graph to show what picture we found in each egg.

During April, we will be talking about bugs and butterflies.  Our caterpillars will be arriving soon, and we’ll get to learn about their life cycles.
