April is a great month filled with so many special days and holidays. April fool’s is so fun with all the harmless pranks and silly jokes that the class will share with each other. I plan on talking about the origin of April Fool's Day with some books and websites.
To celebrate Easter we will begin with the history behind the holiday. Coloring eggs is a must and always very creative. The Center plans on having an egg-citing egg hunt and activities. The science experiment that the group will do is "How does an egg turn into rubber?
Earth Day is also this month on the 22nd -- a perfect time to clean up the playground and our campsite. I am very proud of the group because they recycle and reuse trash all year long.

In the month of March, we celebrated Dr. Seuss's birthday and St. Patrick's Day. We were also excited to feel some spring weather. In honor of Dr. Seuss, we celebrated his birthday by reading some of his favorite books, having a Dr. Seuss wacky week, and having guest readers. Then we celebrated St. Patrick's Day by wearing green, making green snacks, and doing fun art projects. the class also worked in groups to construct a few leprechaun traps in hopes of catching him and his gold. We were unsuccessful but he did bring us a great surprise.
In the month of April, we will be learning about birds, plants and spring. We will be celebrating the WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD! Every day during that week, I have something special planned. We will be showing our appreciation of the planet we live on by picking up garbage on our street for Earth Day.
Kindergarten had a blast in March! We had a fun week celebrating Dr. Seuss and exploring his work through crafts and games. We tried to catch a leprechaun, but he managed to escape, though not before leaving us some yummy treats!
The month of March had an emphasis on literacy, and it culminated in the class writing and illustrating their own books.
We're now excited to move into the month of April and for everything spring will bring! We will be exploring the changing of the seasons and getting ready to celebrate Easter. This month, we will be not only discovering new things about spring, but expressing our knowledge through the arts. The month of April promises to bring new art projects where we will learn how to use new types of art media.
