Butterfly Infant


We started the month of March off learning about our transportation. During circle time we sang songs about our colors and letters. Our Butterfly infants enjoyed learning new songs. We celebrated St. Patrick’s day with an explosion of green. Next we focused on the Zoo. During circle time we read the book Witzy’s Backyard. We are looking forward to nice April weather and lots of fun and learning.

We enjoyed learning about transportation this month. We made airplanes and boats! We also enjoyed viewing the monster truck that came to visit our school. You’ll also see awesome butterflies and cool bees floating around the room as we invite Spring in. We are looking forward to lots of fun learning activities in April.

March was busy and we had much to celebrate! St. Patrick’s Day we all wore green and learned about Ireland the Emerald Isle. There was a week of study on zoo animals that made us look forward to our zoo trip next month. We also took Spring and Graduation pictures! Thank you to all of the parents who sent in ingredients for our cooking projects and helped chaperone on our field trip. We are learning all of our letters and working hard to get ready for kindergarten.

This month we learned all about transportation. We even had a very large monster truck come to our school. We all enjoyed viewing the extra large truck! In celebration of St. Patricks’ day we made a leprechaun with our handprints. We look forward to continuing welcoming spring!!

We were very busy in March! We learned all about different methods of transportation. We were introduced to new letters and learned some new songs. Art projects kept us busy. Going from dramatic play, to blocks, to sand and water to giant floor puzzles keeps us busy. We enjoy our cooking projects on Wednesdays. Thank you for sending in the items we need each week.
