Spring has sprung here at Discovery Isle! The weather is getting warmer and curiosity is in full bloom all around us. Teachers have planned a lot of fun and exciting activities as we celebrate this amazing time of year.
Please be sure to check out your child’s classroom activities for the month. All important information will go home in your child’s art file and through a Tadpole communication. Art files and Tadpole are to be checked on a daily basis. Lesson plans for your child’s classroom are also posted on their “Parent Board” inside the classroom. Also, at the end of the month, you will receive a folder that contains work your child has done throughout the month. An enclosed letter will connect what we learned as well as a sneak peak at the upcoming month. Don’t miss out on your child’s learning…get involved with Links to Learning!
Earth Day is April 22
Make a Pine Cone Birdfeeder. For this you will need large, open pine cones. Tie several feet of string to each cone and cover with a mixture of 1/2 Cup vegetable shortening, lard or suet, 2 1/2 Cups of cornmeal or uncooked oats, chopped dried fruit and nuts (especially sunflower and millet). Roll the cones in birdseed and suspend in a tree.
