April -May 2007

April is a very exciting month. We will be learning about 10 different types of birds. We will be studying the sounds they make, the nests they build, the food they eat, and the size and color of their eggs.

The week after spring break we will be traveling over to the Northwestern pool to learn water safety. Mrs. Britten will be teaching the children basic swimming strokes, and how to keep their head above water in case they would fall in.

We will be learning about insects this month, and actually growing six Painted Lady butterflies! We will learn the parts of an insect, along with interesting facts. The children will learn that butterflies hatch from a chrysalis, and moths hatch from a cocoon.

We will be planting peanut seeds, and watching them grow into full plants. We will study the parts of a plant, and what plants need to grow and live.

We will be reading the chapter book Charlotte's Web, and will be learning about Spiders.

We will be taking a field trip to the Children's Museum in Indianapolis. This will reinforce concepts we have studied throughout the year.

The children will be involved in a Jr. Olympics. They will participate in various track events and will be learning the basic concepts of track and field.
