Last week we talked about Earth Day and how to help take care of our planet, you may have heard your child singing our recycling song, it is very catchy! Thank you to everyone that sent in an empty can, they were repurposed as some very cute pencil holders. Also, hopefully the birds enjoyed the bird seed treats that were sent home.
This week our theme is "Books by Eric Carle." Each day we will read one of the following stories: The Mixed-Up Chameleon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, Friends and The Grouchy Ladybug. We will have finger painting and an egg carton caterpillar art project and we will be making butterflies out of sliced fruit. Also, hopefully our ladybug larvae and caterpillars will arrive this week! We will be observing our new classroom pets to learn about the different stages of their life cycles and then we will release them outside. Finally, as Friday is May Day, our class will surprise some fellow school staff with flowers.
If you have any of the following materials we would love to use them in our class:
Finally, please remember to continue to bring in your Fund Run forms and to wear your past shirts each Friday!

Last week we studied manners. After reading "The Rainbow Fish" we had a foil art project in the art center. We also learned about being kind with a "bee" art project. Our songs were "Please and Thank You" and "The More We Get Together". We brainstormed good manners and role-played some not-so-good manners! We had the opportunity to practice etiquette with a tea party complete with crumpets!
This week we will celebrate Earth Week. In our sensory table we will explore a "coral reef" with water, sea glass, sand dollars, and sea shells. In art we will recycle a can by making it into a pencil holder and learn about feeding the birds by making a bird treat. Our topics will include: Creation, Reduce/Reuse/Recycle, endangered animals, and being kind to plants and animals.
We are also busy preparing for our school-wide Fund Run, which will be held on Friday May 15th. This is a fun morning with our class together, running on the grass field. You will receive a packet this week with 5 pledge forms and 5 tickets. Please obtain 5 pledges from friends, neighbors, relatives or co-workers. The raffle tickets are from parishioners who have already pledged money for our school, and your child may win one of the prizes that are displayed upstairs near the office. For each pledge form you turn in, your child will get an additional ticket! Please take a moment with your child to drop the tickets in the containers upstairs. Contact Andrea McIntyre at email@example.com with any questions. You are welcome to join us to cheer your child on and to assist your child and his/her classmates.
If your child has participated in prior Fund Runs, we are wearing past t-shirts each Friday leading up to the May 15th run.
Have a great week with your child!
