Good Evening,

It's hard to believe that we are closing in on the last few months of school. I've so enjoyed this school year, even with it's many changes, and I've especially enjoyed getting to know each and every Rainbow student.

I've had the priviledge to watch them grow and mature so very much since August:)

Over the next month or so, we'll continue to practice writing our names and talking about the various phonetic sounds in our names as well as common words within the parameters of our playbased curriculum.

The plans are attached for this week:)


Theme: Being Green

We will discuss and learn about ways we can reuse materials and help in simple ways to keep our earth healthy as we celebrate Earth Day this week. The Rainbows will explore simple ways that even they can make a difference. We’ll also talk about the different ways our families already reduce, reuse and recycle!


  • Group Project: We’ll build a pretend vehicle out of previously used materials and decorate it as a class!
  • A Recycled Robot
  • Earth Pendants
  • Litter Bug Craft
  • Creating the Earth: A Rainbow interpretation
  • Additional Info/Dates to Remember:

Tuesday, April 24th: Coop Field Trip/Teacher Work Day: Please be on the look out for more information regarding whatever exciting field trip is planned.
