We hope everyone had a wonderful April! Just 39 more days of school left! We had a great month full of fun experiments, creative crafts and descriptive writing. We put our scientist hats on and made slime from scratch. We practiced our creative writing skills and described a night as the tooth fairy. We spent a week making jewelry and the children produced some really nice pieces.
Our class celebrated four of the children’s birthdays in April on the 15th and 30th with a birthday bash! The children had fun decorating birthday cards and eating cupcakes!
This month we will welcome Spring by planting flowers and herbs and keeping a journal to chart their growth. We will continue with fun activities that target the children’s goal for the year; including learning about tornadoes, Pocahontas, and bugs. We will celebrate Cinco Di Mayo with tacos and a piñata and make maracas! We will be visiting the Brookline Public Works Department on May 20th. The last two weeks of May will be devoted to having each child create their own shadow puppets and put on a show with their classmates. We look forward to displaying these at our end of the year party on June 3rd!
