The Chalkboard

Every week we keep you up to date on what’s happening in the classroom here at Westend Community Playschool(WECP). From the weekly focus boards to field trips and snack days! We do show it all. This blog runs in conjunction with the seesaw app we use to give parents daily updates of what’s happening in the classroom.

May News!

This month begins with our Spring Tea’s on May 1 and 2(please check “Note, reminders and Tips” for details).

The main theme this month will be butterflies. We will discuss the life cycle of a butterfly and watch as our Classroom Butterfly eggs turn into Caterpillars, Chrysalis and Butterflies.

With the help of Eric Carl’s Book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” we will talk about the days of the week.

We will continue working on a surprise for our Mom’s for Mother’s Day, so mums the word?

This month’s focus letters, colours, numbers and shapes are:

Spring Tea will be held in our classroom on Wednesday May 1st and Thursday May 2nd. Everyone is welcome and the concert will start at 9:30 a.m. with Tea and treats served after. Following the concert and festivities, the children will be free to go home with their families. Please let us know how many people are attending so we can have enough “big” chairs setup.

It is hard to believe we are at the point in the year to be talking about year end Funday. Funday will be held on Thursday June 13th from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. for all WECP children regardless of the day your child regularly attends.

This is a parent event where children have an adult attend with them.

It is always a lot of fun so we hope everyone can attend. More specific details of the Days events will be in the next Newsletter
