Announcements: No School next week for spring break. I will hand out calendars on Wednesday or Thursday for April. The Lowes Field Trip was a lot of fun. The bug boxes turned out so cute and they encouraged your children to go home and color them to make them their own. The Monday group didn’t take off the brown paper off the top glass. It makes it so much easier to slide the glass on and off if you peel off the brown paper from both sides, then you can see your bugs inside. Lowes invited all the children to come back with their moms and/or dads on Saturdays. They do a free wood project every other Saturday. The next class is April 14th at 10:00 am. click here for more details. These are all easy projects that you can build in about 30 minutes.

Home Challenge: This week we are learning about Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales. The language and rhythm in Nursery Rhymes especially help children develop language skills which will in turn help with learning the patterns of reading. I encourage you to teach your child some new nursery rhymes and say them often. You can also add clapping or tapping your feet to them to emphasis the rhythm in the verses.
