  • 5 Day 4’sThis week the children celebrated May Day by doing the May Pole Dance while wearing their brightly decorated May Day hats. V is our exciting letter of the week. The children have become expert volcanologists; Magma, Eruption, Lava, Vesuvius and Etna have all been part of the exploration of this interesting physical phenomenon. We have wrapped up  our environmental unit. Beautiful Spring colorful art has been created at the easel, jumbo puzzles e are being put together on the floor by teams of children. Colorful umbrella’s and spring flowers are decorating our classroom. Another beautiful Mother’s Day gift was created along with Mr. Puglesi and will be sent home in time for  Mother’s Day.
  • Extended Day 4’sWe have been very busy practicing for our Spring Show (Friday, May 10th at May 10). We planted pretty flowers and grass and are waiting patiently for them to grow. The class made individual terrariums and learned how they grow in a closed environment. (You will see them at the  show!) We learned the 4 stages of a butterfly and read an investigative(science) book about them. (The illustrations were beautiful!) Next week sharing letters: X and Z. See you at Family Fun Day!!
