Happy Mother’s Day to all! Your children worked very hard at creating the special gifts, cards, and survey of how well they know their mom!
We have spent these past two weeks completing our study of butterflies. We watched our very tiny caterpillars eat, grow, and form a chrysalis. We are awaiting the cocoons to hatch into Painted Lady butterflies!
We read books about and made our model of the solar system to hang on the bulletin board outside of our classroom. Each child chose a planet and painted a Styrofoam model of it. They also created a background by sponge painting stars on black paper. Please look at the pictures on our classroom corner page of the Alcott website.
Our favorite dental hygienist Ms. Joann visited Alcott. The children enjoyed a funny video about the importance of caring for their teeth! They all received a new toothbrush as well!!
As the weather is getting warmer, please remember to send in a weather appropriate change of clothing. We will send home the clothing we have. For the safety reasons, please do not send the children in crocs or flip flops.
Remember to check your child’s backpack each day!
Eva wishes all the Mom’s and Grandmother’s a Very Happy Mother’s Day!
