Weekly Note March 25-29, 2019 Creepy Crawly Creatures

Creepy -crawlies

We had so much fun last week learning about ants and bees and how they eat! We also talked about how God made insects so special with their body parts. This week we will spend time learning about flies and mosquitos and how they eat. We will try to be flies at snack time as we eat with sponges. We will also learn about ladybugs and how special they are. We will practice the letter "L" for ladybug in our letter journals and make a book called "Ladybug, Where Are You?"  The children will be learning and practicing their position words as they move a ladybug in different locations on each page.  We will read a fun book called, "So Many Bugs" and learn a song that goes along with the story. In our Bible lesson, we will begin our Holy Week journey as we learn about the story of how The Children Praised Jesus through the story of Pam Sunday from Mathew 21.

As the weather continues to get nicer, we will be going outside to play. Please make sure that your child has a coat to wear to be outside with the cool breeze off the lake!

Book Orders were went home last week. Please look over the flyers and submit your order online www.scholastic.com/bookclubs  or complete the order forms on the back of the flyers and return to me with check to Scholastic. Book Orders are due April 4th.

The April calendar and Book Order was sent home last week. I cannot believe that we are heading into spring break! Please make sure to look at all of the important dates coming up in April!

Family Day is on Friday, April 5th from 8:15-10:45am. ALL Preschool children are invited to attend this day with their parents or grandparents. We will have a special chapel and enjoy activities throughout the morning. Please come to the classroom and we will go as a class to the church for the beginning of our day. The kids will be singing the opening song for chapel, so they are excited to share their songs with you! A note was sent home last week to RSVP so that we know how many adults to plan for. Please note that all of our activities for Family Day are planned for the children to do with their adult guest. Please return your RSVP this week.

We will be having an Easter Hunt on Thursday April 11th and Friday April 12th. The children will be making bags and go on a hunt to collect different items that we tell them to find. If you would like to make a donation, we are looking for pencils, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, plastic eggs with toys or candy inside, play dough and other small items that the kids can find. We would like 14 of each item so that the children can all hunt for the same things. We will have the hunt outside, weather permitting.  Please bring in your Easter Hunt donations by Monday, April 8th or Tuesday, April 9th. Watch for a Sign -Up through your email from your room parent! We are collecting clean, milk jugs to make our baskets for the hunt. If you have any clean jugs, please bring them to school. Thank you for your help!

As the end of the year approaches, there are some important dates for you to remember.  We will be going on an end of the year field trip with David Stokes on May 20th and 21st.  This will be an outdoor nature adventure that you don't want to miss! 

We will also have special closing services on our last day of school May 24th.  The closing services will last approximately 45 minutes.  All parents are strongly encouraged to attend the last day of school.  It is a big day for the children as they celebrate their preschool experience. Watch for further details about the time of your child's closing service.
