March 2018 News for PreK-J

March has arrived and Spring is on its way! Yay! Can you believe your children are 100 days older and smarter? It is sure noticeable in the classroom!

Speaking of classroom, this Thursday, March 8th is our annual STEM fair night from 5:30 to 7:30.  This is your opportunity to come into our classroom and see what the children have been doing leading up to the fair. We have been learning about melting and freezing through a multitude of hands-on activities. We promise you, there will be lots of pictures nicely arranged for your viewing. We will also have frozen blocks of ice with small bears inside available to observe and/or challenge the curious.

We have a lot of activities planned this month revolving around Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, weather and wind. In Science, we will be following the weather and learning all about wind and its strength. Did March come in like a lion? Will it leave like a lamb? The children will be making predictions concerning the weather for the month of March.

Religion this month is about how God gave us air & wind, praying, and preparing for Easter.

In math, we will continue to work with numbers up to 10. Making 10; sharing up to 10 items equally, comparing towers of up to 9 blocks, and creating patterns and using attributes to name shapes.

In Language Arts, we are learning to form and recognize the lower case letters of the alphabet.

Please have your children practice writing their name with an uppercase and the rest lowercase letters.
