Room 4 N/K

It has been a busy year in Room 4 and it has flown by so quickly! We are excited that the weather has warmed up a bit so that we can go outside to enjoy the fresh air. As we are encouraging the children to get dressed by themselves, it would be helpful if your child wore shoes and a jacket/sweater that they can put on by themselves. During the month of May, the children will begin to go outside for recess with the rest of the school. In April, we finished learning the letters of the alphabet, as well as our theme on Nutrition. The students learned about which foods are healthy and unhealthy to eat. The children worked in groups and made posters using pictures from flyers of both healthy and unhealthy foods. They had lots of fun working on these posters together! We also learned about the different food groups, and focused on fruits and vegetables. We did several activities and finished off the theme doing an art project where the children stamped with different fruits and vegetables. In May, we will be beginning a theme on Nursery Rhymes. Rhyming is a very important early literacy skill for children. “Experts in literacy and child development have discovered that if children know 8 Nursery Rhymes by heart, they are usually among the best readers by the time they are 8.” (Fox, M. 2001, Reading Magic. San Diego, CA: Harcourt). We will also begin a theme on the farm in preparation for our field trip to Six Pines Farm on Thursday, June 1. This will be an all day field trip for all of the Nursery and Kindergarten children.
