A Peek into the Cherry Blossom Classroom – week of April 17, 2023

Welcome Back Blossoms!

We are so excited to be back together at school! Also, I apologize for the delay in getting the blog out to you – I was experiencing some technical difficulties. Everything should be good to go now!

Ms. Tonya’s Lesson: Spring

Ms. Tonya led a discussion about the season of Spring this week. We reviewed the 4 seasons and then discussed the characteristics of spring. Spring brings lots of rain, but it also brings flowers! Lots of animal babies are born in the spring. Spring is a good time to begin your vegetable garden, and farmers are planting seeds as well. We took a close up look to some of the best spring flowers – tulips and daffodils! We also explored some cherry blossoms!

This preschooler is sorting pictures by season.

We used 4 of our 5 senses to learn more about daffodils and tulips!
The best time of the year – when the Cherry Blossom class gets to learn about the cherry blossom tree!

Ms. Sam’s Lesson: Earth Day

Ms. Sam introduced our Blossoms to Earth Day this week. We learned about different ways we can take care of our planet. We talked about ways to Reduce our impact. We explored items that can be Recycled and sorted them by the materials they are made out of. We practiced Reusing by making bird feeders out of toilet paper tubes. We hung the bird feeders outside so that we can meet the birds that live outside of our classroom window!

We sorted recyclables by metal, glass, plastic, and cardboard/paper.
We reused toilet paper tubes to make bird feeders.
Our bird feeders hanging in the tree waiting for birds… and also our new horse friend in the background. What a view!

Our Kindergarten Lesson: Grammar Symbols & Poetry

Kindergarteners dove into Grammar Symbols this week, both in Kindergarten Lesson and the classroom. They practiced finding nouns, verbs, articles, pronouns, and adverbs within sentences. Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop continued their study of Poetry. Kindergarteners wrote acrostic poems and color poems this week!

The Kindergarteners are working on their rough draft of their color poem. We worked on getting our ideas onto paper first, and then building our poem from there.

Enrichment Spotlight: Music, Art, & Science!

Music with Ms. Lisa, Art with Ms. Varela, and Science with Mr. John all resumed this week in their new spaces!

Music class with Ms. Lisa includes Gerry the Giraffe! We practice singing hello to Gerry with our piano and forte voices!
We made collage bird houses in Art with Ms. Varela!
Mr. John’s science experiment was a chemical reaction with baking soda and vinegar!


A HUGE Happy Birthday to all of our April birthdays!!!!

Happy Birthday to our newest 5 year old, 6 year olds, and 7 year old!

We LOVE Our New Space!

Your children have had an amazing first week back to school! We love our new classroom and the extra space that it gives us. We absolutely love the view of the wildlife we see outside – horses, birds, and squirrels right outside of our classroom window this week! The field that we visit during our recess time is so big and giggles were had by all as they ran back and forth!

Our first line time in our beautiful new classroom space!
Lunch time with a view of the horses!
Check out our squirrel friend!
We can just run and run and run and run and run!
