Blue Birds April News

Orange Preschool

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of March, the Blue Birds learned about Numbers, Pets, Leprechauns and Rainbows.  We also dedicated two weeks to multicultural week, which we spent learning and talking about different cultures.  In the beginning of the month, VONS and Carol Cipra made a very special visit to our school for a Dr. Seuss reading and snack all in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and National Children’s Day.  As a class, we celebrated St. Patrick's Day with our “Everything Green” party!  A very tricky little guy who goes by Luck the Leprechaun paid us a visit.  He set off our traps, left glitter everywhere, and sent us on a hunt for gold coins.  Later in the month, we talked about our pets, shared pictures and stories, and explained why our pets are so very important and special to each of us.  At the end of the March, we enjoyed learning about our cultures and what makes each of us unique.  We even tried some yummy foods too!  The Blue Birds had a great time exercising their creativity by making all sorts of art, such as number collages, Dr. Seuss hats, glitter shamrocks, marble paint shamrocks, pots of gold coins, rainbows, and much more!  Lastly, we finished our Zoo Phonic letters and counted numbers 1-30.
