THE RED ROOM REPORTER
MARCH 26 – APRIL 2 AND APRIL 5 – 9
The next two weeks we will celebrate spring and all that comes with it… Easter, rabbits, mud, rain, wind, and early planting in the garden. We will be getting outside as much as possible, so it is especially important that your child has boots, a warm coat, a hat, and mittens or gloves every day they come to Kinderfarm. Snow pants are no longer necessary. I cannot emphasize enough that it is ALWAYS colder and windier at Kinderfarm than it is in town.
The last Share Days of the year will be on Thursday, April 15 and Friday, April 23.
We are still accepting fall registrations. Information about fall registration can be found on the Kinderfarm website. Both summer sessions are full. Feel free to call if you have any questions.
MONDAY – A new month is right around the corner. That means it is time to make something for the coatroom bulletin board. Be sure to check it out later in the week.
The children will also practice following directions as they navigate an obstacle course. The story of Peter Rabbit will serve as our guide for the obstacle course activity.
TUESDAY – We will kick off our morning in the kitchen making cookies. Our afternoon will be spent making bunny bags for the cookies. We will also practice counting syllables using egg shakers.
WEDNESDAY – It is time to prepare the seed potatoes for planting. They need to dry out for a few days before they are planted. Be sure to ask your child how many “eyes” each piece has.
Easter is around the corner. Chocolate bunnies are a favorite Easter treat. With that in mind the children will be painting a bunny with something unique….be sure to ask your child what we painted with.
THURSDAY – Can your child remember what shape we used to make a bunny today. It was not a square, a triangle, or a rectangle. What do we call a squished circle?
FRIDAY – A busy day will round out our week. We will head to the garden to plant the potatoes, practice math skills as we graph jellybeans, and end the day with an Easter egg hunt.
APRIL 5 – 9
MONDAY – The letter “R” will be reinforced today as the children practice tracing uppercase and lowercase letters on an enlarged raindrop. Clouds fill up with moisture and the moisture turns into rain and falls to the ground. We will explore this afternoon as we make clouds in a jar. This is a cool experiment! I am just sure your child will want to tell you all about it. J
TUESDAY – The children will be making a Signs of Spring book today. Ask your child to read it to you.
WEDNESDAY – Our focus today will be on counting skills and matching sets. Fine motor skills will also be put to the test as the children drop dark blue and light blue paint onto white paper. When it dries, they will trace and cut out a rain drop shape.
THURSDAY – After finger-painting with brown paint (mud) the children will be gluing words that begin with the letter “M” on the mud.
FRIDAY – Wind and spring seem to go hand and hand – especially at KinderfarmJ. With that in mind we will make a windy day craft. Windy day play is also on the agenda – hopefully, the wind will cooperate. 😊
SPRING IS HERE!
