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
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

children as they celebrate their preschool experience. Watch for
