Spring is in the air! Finally. The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the flowers…well, we will see those in May after those April showers. Let’s not mention the snowfall we had this week…let’s stick to, SPRING IS IN THE AIR!
The flowers may not have bloomed outside just yet, but, if you were to walk through the Preschool classroom you’d be able to see lots – with flower-inspired artwork on the walls, bouquets giving the room a boost of colour, and gardening happening in the sensory bin there is no shortage of Spring flowers here!
To continue to brighten the classroom, the Preschoolers practiced their gardening this week as they learnt just a little bit more about having a green thumb – how to plant a seed, what makes the seed grow, and how to maintain a garden. They got their hands messy in the dirt, but also got messy with the paint as they painted a very beautiful piece for the mantel.
Where there are flowers there are bees, and if you’re talking about bees, then it is safe to mention the birds…right? Well, this week in the Toddler One classroom they soared through the week learning all about BIRDS.
They sang about birds, they made homes for the birds, and they got to play with all the bird seed they could in the sensory bin, practicing their scooping, and pouring…as they scooped the seeds up, and then poured them on to the floor!
The Toddler One classroom may have been talking all about birds, but if you were to fly next door into the Toddler Two classroom and listened in on one of their CIRCLES, you would notice they were talking about all things ROUND.
The Toddlers may have been talking all things round, but if you made your rounds to the Senior Preschool room you would notice they too were covering their SHAPES, as well as their numbers and letters.
Now let’s hope the weekend SHAPES up to be a nice one – with the amount of sunshine out NUMBERING the amount of rain drops!
From us to you – have a wonderful weekend everybody.

Excusez-moi Excusez-moi before I let you go, has anyone noticed their little one singing en Français? Each classroom has finished a month of learning the different body parts in French – ask them to see just what they have learnt!
Now, I will let you enjoy your weekend! Au revoir!
