Red Robins April News

Orange Preschool

 

Look what we learned last month!

In the month of March, excitement was filled in the room full of activities.  We started off with Dr. Seuss's Birthday and Crazy Hat/Hair Day.  VONS and Carol Cipra read a Dr. Seuss book to the children and provided a special snack (Banana, Juice, and Fruit bar).    On St. Patrick's Day, we enjoyed lots of yummy green snacks brought in from many families.  Ms. Raquel and Mrs. Bertha and the Red Robins made and set traps (See Photos on website) for an attempt to catch Lucky the Leprechaun.  Lucky disappeared, leaving his clothes behind with a special note and a pot of gold. His shoe was missing and Seth found the missing shoe.  For art, the children made shamrock wreaths, shamrocks with glitter and some tissue paper.  The Red Robins talked about their special pets they have or the pet they wish to have.  Some children brought pictures and others drew pictures of their pets.  We also went over numbers, practiced writing them, and made number books.  We started talking about Multicultural.  How we have so many things that are the same and others that are different ways that people dress in other countries.  The Red Robins will be learning about Multicultural and learning new things about the different cultures.  The children will be able to share music, clothes, toys, and foods from their culture background.  We welcomed spring on March 20th.  The Month was finished with all the letters of the alphabet. We have been reviewing and learning our numbers. 

 

What we will learn this month…

For the month of April, We will be talking about spring and Life on a Farm.    As a class, we will try the chicken dance.  The children will create fun and exciting art.  For example, pigs in the mud, farm/barn, sheep, etc.  The Red Robins will have our spring party this month.  They will make special baskets.  The children will have fun making colorful art like eggs, bunnies, chicks, and much more.  We will have a special egg hunt.   The Red Robins will have to look for an egg with the letter they are assigned to.  We will be talking about Nature and Our Environment.  Also, we will go over Plants and growing things.  They will plant some seeds and watch them grow.  Graduation Pictures will be on Friday, April 11th.  Please have your child wear a white collared shirt.  This month the Red Robins will review the letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, Ee, Ff, Gg, Hh, Ii, Jj.  Please work with your child at home in addition to what they are learning here at school.
