Hello Preschool Families!

Happy Spring! We are excited to embrace April and all the changes it brings! The warmer days offer more opportunities to explore outside and notice all the changes this new season brings.

As much as we loved playing in all the snow this winter, we welcome spring and the different weather that comes with it! We have had so many discussions about rain, wind, and clouds. We found out that different kinds of clouds usher in changing weather conditions. We even spent some time on the playground looking up at all the shapes the clouds can make. The children have offered great thoughts and questions about the weather. We continue to watch as new life emerges around us. Trees, flowers, and baby animals are all around. What an exciting time!

As a class we have started to plan what we would like to plant in our garden! This will be an ongoing project as we plant, weed, water, observe and eventually pick and eat what we grew. So far the kids have asked to plant strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, and potatoes. We can’t wait to get started!

We talked a lot about eggs at Easter. Now we will expand on that as we discover which animals lay eggs. There is a bird’s nest outside our classroom window and we are waiting to see if any baby birds will make an appearance!

During April we will be discovering England! We look forward to learning about castles, English traditions, foods and so much more as we dive into our country of study. As always, the children’s questions will guide as to what they would like to learn!

Earth Day is April 22. We will be learning about the earth and how we can help to keep it safe. “Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle” will be our focus this month. We will look for new ways to reuse an item and give it a new purpose. We can all find ways to help the earth; turn off the lights when you leave the room, turn off the water while you brush your teeth, what can be recycled in your lunchbox, go on a litter patrol and pick up garbage in your neighborhood.

We will be practicing some of these in school! We anticipate another month of fun, learning and growing with your kids! Thank you for sharing your children with us and for all of your support! Enjoy the beautiful spring weather!
