Dear XDC Families,
The students in XDC have been working on “spring crafts.” Some of the students’ favorite crafts last week were; making “stained-glass windows” with tissue paper, decorating paper “Easter eggs” and creating “paper-butterflies.”
A reminder to parents:
- There is no school the week of April 17th-21st. XDC is open. Please register in advance if you are planning to come to XDC.
Morning Pre-K News!
April 3rd – 7th
Happy April and Spring! It was wonderful to have a little sunshine last week; let’s hope for more!
Both in afternoon preschool and in morning care, the children have been working on proper letter and shape formations. We practiced and reinforced this on Friday using shaving cream. (They loved it! Check the web site for a few photos.)
This week we will explore plants, seeds, and gardens. We will learn what is necessary for seeds to grow and plants to thrive.
Our letter is W. W crafts, watermelon math, and spring story problems will keep us busy in math and science.
We have also begun a meditative writing/drawing time one morning a week. Quiet music plays while the children draw anything they are moved to. It can be a picture of family, friends, an activity they did over the weekend, something they would like to do, or an abstract picture. It is entirely their choice. When finished they are encouraged to tell me about their picture and together we write.
As always, please let me know if you have questions.
Have a wonderful week!
