I hope you enjoyed a nice spring break and Easter with your families. The Busy Bees were excited to tell each other all about the things they did while they were apart and what surprises they enjoyed on Easter. It sounds like candy and chocolates were a favorite from the Easter bunny (or “Easter man” as one child called him)!
This week we have been talking about spring. We read a book called Puddles, and then talked about how important the spring rain is for the plants. To get a better idea, we decided to go check out some of the plants growing in and around our play garden. We will continue to keep an eye on these, and we will also get a chance to do some planting of our own!
The Busy Bees will not have school on Thursday, April 15 due to our spring conferences. Sign-up sheets are now posted, so be sure to choose a time that would work best for you. Child care will be available for your preschooler in the studio with Mrs. Wyant.
We are continuing to work on our cutting skills at school. This week several of the children chose to make spring umbrellas, and they all did an amazing job cutting them out! The improvements some have made are outstanding, but practicing is the only way to keep up on this skill. Please be sure to allow your child to use scissors at home under your supervision. Your child could help you clip coupons, cut pictures out of magazines, or snip away at some play dough! Have fun!
