April has come and gone! It was a very rainy month and we were able to utilize the gym and play indoor games. April also had 3 early release days. On early release days we always to to book some form of entertainment for our students. We were lucky enough to get Awesome Rob to perform magic, Mystic Drums to play music, and Flying High Dogs to show us some fun tricks their dogs can do. Letter S was all about spring, we made egg carton flowers and made our own superheroes. During letter T’s week we talked about traveling and practiced making our own paper airplanes. Letter U’s week was dedicated to preparing for the Q & U wedding. Children decorated the aisle, made pictures, and learned more q & u words for the wedding.
Thank you to all families that donated or attended the Q & U wedding!!
What is to come:
May will be the last month of our alphabet unit! Letters V & W will kick off the month. We will be doing a volcano experiment as well as learning about the water cycle. X-ray art will be the project for letter X’s week. For letter Y we will be drawing self portraits along with an all about you page. To finish off the month letter z will be about zoos!

What we did:
We started out April with letter S which was all about spring! Our big project for that week was making flower bouquets out of egg cartons. Each child also created their own Superhero! They came up with their superhero name, designed a costume, and came up with their own special superpowers. We have them displayed in the classroom for everyone to see.
For letter T we talked about traveling which was followed by April vacation the week after. The last week of the month of April was dedicated to preparing for the Q&U wedding! We made an aisle for Q&U to walk down and decorated the classroom with drawings of Q&U. It was a blast! A big thank you to all the families who donated or came to the wedding!
What is to come:
We will be all finished with our alphabet unit by the end of the month! We are combining letters V and W in the first week of May. We will be learning all about volcanoes and the water cycle. We’ll be making X-ray art for letter X and letter Y will be all about, “you” with self portraits. And Z will be all about zoo’s!
