While it still doesn’t feel like spring is officially here I am thankful for the slightly warmer weather this week and the spring rain which makes me anticipate the new growth we have been beginning to see outside. Here in our classroom we are enjoying watching our caterpillars make their crisalidas (chrysalises) and we are excited for them to emerge soon.
We look forward to seeing you Tuesday night (May 6) at the Quest Center for our K-4 Spring Program. It will begin at 7:00pm. Children should plan to arrive between 6:30pm-6:50pm. They should plan to wear a dark colored T-shirt with shorts or pants. It will be a wonderful night of praise and worship!
You received some information about our end of the year trip to the Critter Barn in your child’s purple folder today. Please take a few minutes to look this over and send back the bottom portion. We would like to have every child bring a parent or other special guest to share the day with them. It is an all day field trip and we will be eating lunch while at the farm. More information about this will be sent in the coming weeks.
Monday is a Box Top collection day. Please send in any you may have at home!
May 5 – Program Rehearsal at High School, 8-10am
May 6 – Spring Program at GRCHS, 7pm
May 8 – Field Trip to Calvin Nature Preserve – we could use a couple chaperones!
May 16 – Family Fun Night
This week our sight words were “mira” and “día.” We kept working on our persuasive letters as well as making signs and writing songs that can help solve problems. The children enjoyed having a special time to share all of the writing they have done with their small table group.
In Math we spent time making up and writing equations for number stories. We are talking about partes (parts) of ecuaciones (equations) with both restas (addition problems) and sumas (subtraction problems).
Our Painted Lady caterpillars have made their crisalidas and are now hanging in their cups as we wait for them to emerge. We had to be careful around our mailboxes the last few days (where our caterpillars are currently living) so that we would not disturb our caterpillars and they did their important work. We enjoyed recording some observational drawings of their progress so far.
This week talked about Jesus’ early ministry. We shared the story of how Jesus chose his disciples, talked about how Jesus spent his days and how Jesus loved everyone – even the little children who came to see him!
