For the month of April, the children of blue group completed lessons relating to Ecology and Earth Day. They included do it yourself composting where they learned about organic matter to help plants grow! Blue group also participated in a campus clean up. Which helped them become aware of the importance of keeping our communities clean. They also created art with the materials collected around campus. In preparation for our end of the year festivities they have been practicing their talent show dance and learning sing along songs. They are very excited to perform in front of friends and families!
All throughout the month of April, students in the After School Program at Primrose learned about money. They learned how to identify different coins and bills, they learned how to count money, and they learned how auctions work. They even got the opportunity to participate in their very own auction using “Eagle Bucks”. Students donated items for the auction and were compensated with “Eagle Bucks”. Another way for students to earn “Eagle Bucks” was demonstrate good behavior, finish all of their homework for the week, and do their assigned jobs.
Aside from the auction, they also worked extremely hard to make decorations and posters for their Spring Dance. Parents donated lots of snacks and fruit for the dance. Fontana Mobile Recreation came out for the second time this school year. They provided The Mobile DJ and face painting. Students had an amazing time preparing for the Spring Dance and at the Spring Dance.
At Solorio this April, Healthy Fontana came and taught the students how to make tostadas! They quizzed them on all the different ingredients like beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and cilantro needed for the salsa! They discussed which ones go where on the MyPlate balanced meal. The students enjoyed answering all the questions and they were so eager to try it out altogether. Most of the students enjoyed it and staff was even delighted to see one of the students licking their plate clean! We all enjoy when Healthy Fontana comes to our site, always a tasty treat!!
