“April showers bring may flowers!” -unknown

Hello April!

We are so excited that spring is finally here, we cannot wait to take full advantage of the beautiful weather coming our way. We spent the month of March trying to get outside as much as we could. As always, we want to remind parents that indoor shoes are appreciated and dressing in layers is still recommended as we are outside in the morning and afternoon. Thank you!

We had an amazing March break; we spent our week doing many different activities. On Monday it was crazy sock day. We made our own crazy socks for our bulletin board to show our support for World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st . On Tuesday we had jersey/sports day, we planned and participated in sports, obstacle course games, playing sports trivia and designing our own jersey’s. Wednesday was Hawaiian day! We celebrated by having a hula dance contest, make your own fruit kebabs and spent time learning facts about Hawaii. Thursday, we tie-dyed socks and wore our favourite colourful clothes. Friday was St. Patrick’s Day! We had the best time going on a leprechaun scavenger hunt and we found a delicious treat at the end and enjoyed celebrating as a class.

Our class has been very interested in learning how things are made. We have explored how candy, jeans, crayons, cookies, erasers and tennis balls are made. We cannot wait to further explore the process of how different things are made.

April 28th is a PD day. Please let us know if your child/children need care that day.
