Kindergarten Prep April Newsletter

Ms. Becky’s Classes

Wow! I am writing this as I prepare to leave for Spring Break. It will be nice to take a break and I will be ready to return for our final weeks of a school year that has flown by.

It was wonderful to have a chance to get to visit with each of you for a conference. The children have learned so much and are well-prepared for their next step. It has been such a joy watching them explore, learn, be challenged and be excited when they are successful.

We will finish our study of the letters of the Alphabet in April. You will begin to see our walls, classroom and their bags filled with spring flowers, Easter eggs and butterflies. We will celebrate both Palm Sunday and Easter with songs and stories from our Prairie Pastors.

We continue our visits to the continents with trips to South America, Europe and North America. We will make carnival costumes, wax eggs and Royals Pennants. We will enjoy a rain forest buffet, fruit smoothies and nachos for Cinco de Mayo!

We will be making vegetable soup, doing weather experiments and getting a little cra–zy! Oh and yes the letters Q and U will be getting married again!!!! April is such a fun month. There are so many things to do.

May will be spent wrapping up the year, completing our workbooks, making surprises for our Moms, camp-out day and wearing our swimsuits to school on Beach Day! We know you will enjoy our end-of-the-year program to see all that the children have learned this past year and celebrate with your child’s accomplishments.

Again, it has been such a joy to spend this past year and for some, the past 2 years with your child. They bring joy to each day and I am privileged to play a small role in their academic journey. Thank you for sharing them with me.

Spring has sprung and we look forward to getting outside more. We only have about 8 weeks left of school which is unbelievable. The kids have grown so much in many areas and continue to enjoy school each day. April brings us to the end of the alphabet. We will focus on the letters T through Z with art activities, handwriting and phonics. For art, we will make tulips, umbrellas, x-rays and an Earth for Earth day. We have some special days in April too and focus on Easter. We will have a teeny tiny day, Q & U’s wedding, a wacky Wednesday, a crazy day and of course ROYAL’S DAY!!! Thank you to Natalie Tucker for preparing the wedding cake for the K-Prep AM classes. This month we will make vegetable soup and eat some dirt and worms.
May will bring a time to review our year and all we have learned. We will have some fun with a beach day, preparing a special gift for our Moms, and perform our final program as the kids prepare to move on. It has been a pleasure to be your child’s K-Prep teacher. The kids are fun, unique and a delight to see every day. I know I am blessed to be a part of each of their lives and pray for smooth transitions in the Fall for the kids as they enter new classrooms and meet new friends.

Just a reminder to please have your child wear shoes that are playground safe. Flip flops and shoes that come off easily are not good choices for playing outside.

Happy 5th Birthday in April to Cora Kovac! Clayton Terril celebrates his 5th birthday in May!

Blessings to all!
