Hurray hurrah - it's time for End of Year Goodies! The order forms are inside your May payment packet. These help pay for the graduation so we can keep it free every year for your family. Thanks so much for your support! New this year is this adorable pillow when you buy all 3 items! And as always, we have our 60-minute DVD of all the years' activities, our Grad Pics CD of all the graduation pictures, and an 8x10 class pic that will be taken this month on May 10-11!

No birthdays this month :)

April Adventures!

I can't believe this is the last month of school! Where has the time gone? It has been a joy watching your children grow and learn this year!

Graduation is just around the corner and I am sorry to say that I will not be able to attend as it is the very same date and time as my son's high school graduation. Boo!

Miss Lindsay will be leading our class in our songs and we have worked together to choose a couple of their favorites. I will miss you all!

Take a look at some of the fabulous learning moments in our classroom photos. It was a great month!

Look forward to Mother's Day, caterpillars and butterflies, and a camping unit to kick off summer, among other things.

I have to admit I am keeping more artwork than usual to fill the portfolios that will be available at graduation. Our ABC books are nearly complete as well, yay!

I hope your family has enjoyed this Sunshine year as much as I have!

So much fun being birds and gathering our own "stuff" to build our nests. Note to self: This project would be better completed outside!

Some birds have quite a gift for making beautiful nests.

Painting our classroom fire truck.

It was up to the classes to put accessories on the fire truck. Some drew pictures of ladders, some built ladders out of kinects, some used markers to draw gauges directly on the box. One even wrote "911!"

These girls were calling 911. Someone had painted paper to look like flames so they could put out the fire. AWESOME imaginative play! This really prepared them for the Fire Department field trip.

Hard to tell but this was "magic" underwater painting. Drawing with white crayon on the white paper then painting blue water colors over it was very cool!

Shark day was a favorite!
