Week of April 16th

Hello Parents:

We are looking forward to all the special activities occurring this week. Please be sure to check your child’s mailbox for details about what’s occurring each day during our week-long celebration. We are super excited to have George and his sister CeCe playing the violin for us Monday morning and Jim’s mom Justine will be our musician for the afternoon class! We want to thank all three of the them in advance!

We had to postpone our work in the garden due to in climate weather and repairs on the irrigation system. We would like to thank Julie (from Big Green) and Charis (our new garden coordinator) for all of the hard work they have been doing in the pre-k garden.  We will delay our garden prep and planting until the week of April 23rd. As the weather (hopefully) continues to warm we will have more outdoor learning opportunities…please be sure to dress your child appropriately- complete with sunscreen. We have however, begun some indoor exploration with seeds (exploring the properties of various seeds in the sensory table) and lima bean sprouting activity.

The children have been enjoying the various versions of Goldilocks as well. Ms. Anna was a guest teacher in our room and taught the children a Goldilocks song and read a favorite version of the story (Goldisocks).
