In June the curriculum theme is based on community helpers. Teachers will discuss with the children about the people who live and work in our community. All classes will do many fun community helper activities to expand their knowledge and learning experience. Geography will cover landmarks and favorite places such as national forests, mountains, rivers, desserts, beaches, music/art, and state capital and flag. Storytime includes reading, “The Little Red Hen” book which teaches children the importance of helping. In Zoology they discussed and learned about insects, rocks and minerals, parts of ladybug, growing plants, and gardening.

May was a month full of special events. A big thank you to all the families for the generous gifts, food, and beautiful flowers you brought in during Teacher Appreciation Day! We really appreciate everything you do for all of us here at Little Acorn. Mother’s Day was a great turn out. It was so nice to see all moms spending the morning with their children. The children were super excited to give their moms gifts that they worked so hard on! They ended the month of May witnessing the caterpillars they all had in their classes turn into beautiful butterflies!
In April each class celebrated Spring in their own creative way by creating beautiful crafts such as baskets, bunnies, egg painting and egg dying. The most exciting highlight of the week was egg hunting. Please look for pictures of your children on their class pages on the website. Thank you all for your participation in our Book Fair this year! We sold $1000 worth of books. The school receives 50% off that money in Scholastic Books. Each teacher will order new books for your child’s classroom. Thank you again for all your support!
Spring is in the air! In the month of March, the children had fun learning and celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. Many children participated in wearing their green for the day. In addition to learning about the holiday, there were many arts and crafts that the children created. They even had a surprise visit from Lenny the Leprechaun! The children also started planting seeds outside in their garden. We will look forward to growing tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, strawberries, and zucchini this year.
We celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on fourth of March by reading his books. The children were super excited, Ms. Amanda dressed up as Dr. Seuss during story time. Children in our preprimary and primary classes have been enjoying their new playground structure, music wall, and tree stumps. They all love to jump and climb!
All re-registration forms should be in by now. Please check with the office if you are unsure. A re-registration form is required for all children currently attending. If you are withdrawing from our school, you are still required to give us 30 days’ notice.
February was full of care and kindness towards one another. The children gave each other Valentine cards while enjoying their treats at their Valentine party!
The teachers taught lessons on cultural awareness and friendship. Topics discussed were Lunar New Year, the year of the pig, family and cultural traditions. The children listened and danced to different songs from the continent of Asia including music from China, India, Japan, Korea, and Asian Island countries. Teachers introduced games, cultural foods, clothing and books. The top book for the month is, Little Blue and Little Yellow, by Leo Lionni. The story is about two best friends, when one day they can’t find each other. When they finally do, they give each other such a big hug that they turn green!
The children learned about Katsushika Hokusai who was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. The teachers and students also had discussions and lessons on President George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
Our maintenance has been on campus this month working on several projects. Children in our primary and preprimary classes are excited about their new music wall! We are also currently working on placing in a new play structure that will be arriving soon.
