Whats happening in April at Extended Day?
In honor of the spring season, despite the weather, we kicked April off by painting ceramic pots with spring colors and planting seedlings. Through these fun activities we will be learning about how flowers grow and watch them bloom. Keep your eyes on our window ledge to see our spring blossoms come to life.
We are proud to announce that many children have been earning wish day! A wish day is a reward for earning 10 homework stars on their homework charts. Each day children 4-6 children receive a sticker for doing what is expected during homework and D.E.A.R time (Drop everything and read). Our homework time last 15-20 minutes Monday through Thursday and we expect the children to be focused, calm, and productive.
Wish Days granted in the Month of April! We celebrated Declan’s wish day by having a picnic at Eliot Field, playing a class wide game of kickball, and having Declan’s choice of chocolate brownies for snack! Through the month we will celebrate wish days for Tian-Hao, Nicki, and Michael. All the children will earn a wish day by the end of the school year! So stay tuned to hear the wishes granted at HEDP!!
