Reading together as a family every night is an important event in a young child’s life. It helps to build listening skills, comprehension, vocabulary, and pure enjoyment for reading. What a wonderful gift that you as a parent can give your child!

SCHOOL IS CLOSED UNTIL APRIL 20.
For the month of April, the children will be learning about plants. They will explore the 4 parts of a plant (root, stem, leaf, and flower). They will be able to explain why plants are important and what plants need to survive (water and sunlight). Children will be planting seeds and keep a journal of the results in regards to the plant growth. They will also be growing a bean in a ziplock bag and journal these results, as well. The children will be sorting seeds by size, color, texture. The children will get to see what happens to a flower when we put food coloring in the water of the flower. The children will act out the growth of a plant using body movements.
