Good Afternoon,

Please see the included plans below for this week.

Additionally, my sons, Bailey and Caden, will be at school with me tomorrow as DPS have a teacher workday tomorrow.

A big thanks to Bonnie (Emme's Mom) and Marisol (Roan's Mom) for filling in for me on Thursday and Friday:)



Theme: Spring has Sprung!

This week we’ll further explore the signs of spring including animals, insects, flowers/trees and gardening. The Rainbows will continue to provide care for their seeds that they planted last week and create some fun spring crafts as well.

  • We’ll learn about the life cycle of a caterpillar/butterfly and make our own caterpillars
  • Butterfly/Dragonfly Paper Lantern
  • Worms: We’ll learn a bit about earthworms and why they are helpful to plants
  • We’ll make a beautiful blossoming tree
  • The Rainbows will create their own potted flower craft
  • Rainy Day Umbrellas

Additional Info/Dates to Remember:

Please be sure to dress your child appropriately according to the weather forecast for the day. We are outside each and every day for about 45 mins to an hour (unless it’s raining). Apply sunscreen as needed at home as it is definitely that time of year again! Also, please check your child’s cubby to make sure he or she has an appropriate change of clothing.
  • Monday, April 2-Friday, April 6th: Spring Break: No school for students or teachers
  • Monday, April 9th: Teacher Work Day: No School for students
  • Tuesday, April 10th: Classes Resume
