PDO I April Newsletter

Spring is here! We hope all of you had a wonderful spring break! It was great to see the children after the break and hear all about their adventures.

March was full of fun! The first week of March, we celebrated Dr. Seuss’s birthday by doing a One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish counting activity. We also read a few Dr. Seuss board books. The week before Spring Break, we celebrated St. Patrick’s Day by painting shamrocks. After the break, we painted at the easel with spring colors. The children enjoyed learning a new song called “I Am Waiting” by Dr. Anne Meeker.
In April and May, we will be focusing on spring and all the beauty and life that comes with it. We will decorate crosses with tissue paper for Easter. We will create coffee filter butterflies and use pop bottles to paint flowers. We look forward to reading Mouse’s First Spring and Spring is Here. We will sing “Spring Morning” and “Relaxing Flowers” as well as other spring songs and finger plays. We will also be watching for signs of spring as we play outside.

We have no April birthdays to celebrate. In May, we will celebrate the birthdays of Graham Everist and Bronwyn Donley. Happy Birthday!
It is hard to believe that we are approaching the end of the school year. The children have grown so much this year and it has been a joy to watch! Thanks so much for sharing them with us!

We hope all of you have a wonderful summer with your families! We will miss you!
