Happy Monday and what a great Monday we had today! To start off the week we introduced the book Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert. This book inspired us to learn more about different flowers, starting with ones that are red! We also used pipe cleaners and construction tape to make our own flowers. We gently placed the beads on the stem of the flowers to make them colorful!
Last week we finished our letter of the week with the letter Zz. Throughout the year we have traced, cut, tapped, and learned the sounds of all the letters of the alphabet! We are so proud of the Blue Roomers for their hard work!
We enjoyed some extra outside time on the back playscape, soaking up the warm sun! Many friends listened to the beautiful bird songs while enjoying time outside. We are here to welcome Spring and observe the many different signs that the Spring season is here!
During Morning Meeting, friends started their day with a pretzel breath. Thanks for choosing our STAR breath today, Jack O.
