Ms. Sekel's Classroom
What is 4K doing in April?
This April we have been super busy!! We have done so much and have so many events still to come. We have been learning and exploring about lots of things, so make sure you scroll down to learn about what our class has been up to and what is going to happen in the future!
New Unit on Seasons
Our class will begin a new unit on the seasons. On April 14th, we will start our unit by going outside and looking at the new buds on trees. We will talk about why why trees lose their leaves and how they start growing new leaves. We will then, gather some leaves and sort them by color, size, and shape. We will read lots of books like, I See Spring, Flowers and Showers, and Seasons, . We will also learn about foods that are grown in the spring, like rhubarb and kiwis. I have arranged a field trip to Perkin's Greenhouse where the students will get to see flowers and vegetables that are grown in there.
We will learn a song, “Five Green and Speckled Frogs” in class. The song and materials will come home in your child’s folder. This song is great tool for numbers, rhyming, and reinforcing our theme. I hope you enjoy singing it together at home!
Lastly, I also enjoy volunteers to come into the classroom or to come on the field trips with us. It is a great way to see what is happening in our classroom. Your time and effort is what makes our 4-K classroom so memorable and valuable. Please contact me about more information to volunteer!
Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle!
