Welcome to March in the 2's! It is time for our weekly color segment. We start off with red, then blue, followed by brown, then orange and green, and finally, yellow and purple! Each new color will have a unique craft. At circle time we will play with our color box. This month, we will read The Three Little Pigs. The children will have a party to celebrate St. Patrick's Day and there will be an Egg Hunt before our Spring Break.
3 Year Old Class:
Spring is in the air and the 3's are excited! We are getting ready for our town's favorite holiday - St. Patrick's Day. The children are also creating various crafts for Easter and Passover, making baskets for our Egg Hunt and hats for our Spring Hat Parade. We have extended our dinosaur theme because the children have enjoyed learning about these creatures so much.
4 Year Old Class:
Everything is popping up "green" in the 4's. The children are busy painting shamrocks and leprechauns and they are learning about the Emerald Isle of Ireland. They will celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss by having a pajama day, reading some of his famous books, and making a meal of "Green Eggs and Ham." The 4's are continuing their theme of dinosaurs and are learning new vocabulary words such as, extinct, enormous, ancient, fossils, herbivores and carnivores. They painted a dinosaur mural and it is displayed in the hall. The children are learning the phrase "March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb." During craft-time, they will make lions and lambs that will be displayed in their classroom. The children are noticing the changes that are beginning in nature outside. They are looking forward to spring and spending more time outside. The end of March will find the 4's coloring hard-boiled eggs and making a special spring craft.
