BENCHMARK – 4’s
April 2021 Newsletter
Spring is in the air! It is so hard to believe that we have already completed twenty-three letters of the alphabet. It gives us great pride to see what confidence this knowledge gives the children. This month we will complete the alphabet (We don’t envy the parents that get stuck with those last few letter bags – they’re tough ones!) Our unit focus this month will be on butterflies and insects – with some worms thrown in for good measure. Of course, we will continue with our journal entries.
The spring excitement will continue to spill over into the classroom with lots of fun things to see and do! We will be experiencing the butterfly life cycle in our classroom, watching our own butterflies go from larva, to caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly. Each child will be able to name their own “Painted Lady” butterfly. We hope the kids will enjoy this awesome month!
We will be testing this month for our end of the year progress reports to be handed out in May. It might be helpful to bring the flashcards back out and review letters and numbers.
Our end of the year party will be on Tuesday, May 18th. Please let us know if you are interested in helping to plan the party. We will send out a sign-up genius with needed items later in the month. It’s hard to believe this is the last party!
