April 2014
    
          
     During  the month of April we will be focusing on Easter.  We will be making a paper mache Easter egg.  We will make the egg on a balloon with gluey water.  Once it is dry, we will paint it with pastel colors.  We will also decorate an Easter basket.  Each child will be asked to bring in a basket for us to decorate for our egg hunt at our Easter party. 
     For snack we will make a bunny biscuit.  We will use 2 biscuits, raisins for eyes and carrot slivers for whiskers.  We will read several books about rabbits and egg hunts.  We will learn several new songs which we will share with our parents at our Easter Party on Wednesday, April 16th and Thursday, April 17th. 
     We will have no school on Good Friday or Easter Monday.
     After the Easter holiday, we will start our last unit of the year - Animals That Come From Eggs.  We will start off with birds, followed by amphibians, reptiles and insects.
