March is Magnificent

March has always been one of my favorite months - and it's not just because of my birthday! :-)
I love how the plants begin to flower, the trees turn vividly green, and the weather begins to warm up.
At school, March is just as beautiful. The students seem to shine and really show growth during this time, both physically and in their academics. Boys and girls who couldn't write their names a few months ago are blossoming into incredible authors and brilliant thinkers!
March also means that our school year is nearly through. Spring break provides a refresher for students, teachers, and parents and prepares us for our final quarter. As we venture into these last 45 days of school, don't forget to continue to practice daily with your children. Many new and exciting concepts will be introduced and it is important for the students to continue to receive support at home and at school.
Happy Spring!

Dr. Seuss

Friday, March 2nd, was Dr. Seuss' birthday. Our class celebrated this day by reading his classic book Green Eggs & Ham. Of course, we couldn't just read the book, we had to try some ourselves! Most of the students were a little nervous to eat something so green-looking. But, that Sam-I-Am can be pretty convincing! So, each one of us took our fork and our first hesitant bite.... YUM! As it turns out, we like green eggs and ham just as much as the characters in the book.
Today, on our field trip, the students received a special treat as they arrived at JCA and experienced the magic of Dr. Seuss' stories coming to life! We even had a chance to meet some of the actors and hear some of the less familiar, yet interesting stories, written by Dr. Seuss.
We also celebrated the life of Dr. Seuss by painting our own cat in the hat pictures. Stop by the classroom sometime to see our artists' great work!
