May seems to have passed by just as quickly as it arrived! It was a flurry of activity here in Azul from special projects to exploring our outside environment, it has been a joy to see the children explore their outdoor surroundings and connect themselves to nature.
We wrapped up our April Curriculum theme of Spring, and began to explore outside and learn about plants Native to the Pacific Northwest. Our school is lucky to have a great nature trail and outdoor area that has so many beautiful native plants. In the classroom, children had an opportunity to learn about different native leaf shapes and different native flowers with leaf and flower cards.
Our month of May began with the children working hard on our class auction project for the schools 30th Anniversary party. Each child was able to create a leaf on the tree with their fingerprint. Ms. Ilyoun added some beautiful origami to this to create a wonderful piece of art. Thank you to all who were able to attend!
Following the auction project, Ms. Michelle began working with the children on an involved Mother’s Day project. It was lovely to see the children working so hard and to hear them express their love for their Mothers. Ms. Ilyoun also guided the children in creating some beautiful cards and Art for Mother’s Day as well.
