In other classroom happenings...
The kindergarten children have planted their spring grass baskets/pots and are watching the sprouts grow up tall and green on the windowsill! They are felting wool over wooden eggs to make a felted tulip for the baskets and made a twizzle out of twisted yarn to tie around the basket as decoration. The children will be making beeswax caterpillars that will live in the spring grass too. They have been out enjoying the April showers, playing outside in the rain and splashing in the muddy puddles!
The second grade is beginning a final math block, reviewing and pulling together all of the math learned throughout the year. They will be hearing the story of St. Francis, and in subsequent weeks will be learning and working with St. Francis' "The Canticle of the Sun".
