April 2021 News 

We are very happy to have this beautiful weather for April and hoping to have all recesses outside now.  We are now studying the Unique curriculum “Changing Our Land”.  Our stories are “Riding with Dad” and “Building A Park”. Vocabulary is animal, bridge, build, house, environment, road, sidewalk, tree, tunnel. Our word wall words are did, here, how, hurt, made, on, their, this, tree, use, & are. We are studying how things people build change the land. We started the first week with Little Blue Truck Springtime for book group, then will read The Spring Book, Worm Weather, and Bear Wants More .  In social studies and science we are studying things we build and how they are built. We will also study worms.  Pretend play is building with blocks, magnetic tiles, and animals.  We are using our easels during fine motor and practicing our names and word wall words.  Our movement is fun spring and animal songs. We like to sing along as well as bounce, hop, jump, using our big ball.

Miss Pam and Miss Jennifer see students for speech/language and occupational therapy sessions as well as group each month focusing on fine motor, sensory, and language skills. They did a fun Easter activity group and will have another group later this month.

I will continue to send home practice packets each week, in case of the event that we move to remote learning.  Also, if your child is on remote learning at any time, you may use Google classroom to sign in to participate in our classroom live.

Please check your REMIND app regularly for any updates as well as your email.  We will be outside for recess when not raining, so please have your child dress accordingly as some days are chillier than others.

We will move forward to the end of the year with no additional days off or early dismissals.


Happy Spring! Happy April!

Our April Unique unit discusses things that people make, including roads, bridges, tunnels, sidewalks, and houses. So our people made bridges today with blocks.

Discovering the leprechaun’s mess!

A leprechaun came in our room and created havoc. We’ve been reading How to Trap a Leprechaun and he has taken our gold, got out of the trap,  and left a mess!


Do we like green eggs and ham? We (3 of 4) do NOT like green eggs and ham!
