This week will be our last class for the Spring 2009 session. Children will attend a shortened class to review songs and/or material studied. After, there will be a program for the students to share with family members what they have learned over the semester.... don't forget your camera! We are so proud of their accomplishments and we know you will be too!!
Following the brief program, the students will have an opportunity to "spend" the coins they have earned over the semester. They will also have a chance to earn more coins playing games at the carnival planned.
We are asking each family to bring a dessert to share.....keep it simple!! Past experience tells us the children will be doing a lot of running around!!
We will also have a sign-up sheet for all those returning in the Fall. Due to limited classroom space, new students will only be accepted based on the number of previous students returning. We want to make every effort to place returning students first......... don't forget to sign up!! No classroom fee will be collected at this time.
THANK YOU for a GREAT Spring session!!

This week, we read Uncle Peter's Amazing Chinese Wedding, then we made paper flowers. First, we traced our hand on a piece of construction paper. Next, we cut the outline hand shape out and created curves by rolling the finger-like ends in a pencil. We then took two strips of green paper, folded them in half, then cut them into leaf shapes and lightly rolled the ends of the leaves around a pencil so they appeared curved . Each leaf shape had a hole punched out of the center. The hand shape served as the flower which was attached to a straw using tape. We then slipped the straw through the holes in the two leaves, taped the leaves to the straw, and added a pipe cleaner in the flower as a finishing touch.
