The weather is beautiful, and we are planning lots of experiences for the children to learn about the wonderful growth and changes going on all around us as the world bursts into the lively season of Spring. The centerpiece of this hands-on learning Spring experience takes place in our gardens. Over Spring break, the children who attended have worked hard to weed the garden boxes and prepare them for new seedlings and plants. The classrooms are exploring nature items that are signs of Spring, in their Discovery interest areas, and there are books to be found, all over the school, all about gardening, seeds, and Spring!
In addition to the gardens, Mrs. Hamilton’s class will be doing a butterfly release in May, and Mrs. Sullivan’s class will be sponsoring our annual Chick Hatching later this Spring. We will bring the butterflies and the chicks out onto the playground so each class will have a chance to see them. (more…)
