On April 2, we started “indoor planting.” As you know young children lose interest fast, so we thought, “What will grow fast?” Walaaah! “Beans!” We read books about plant life cycle, then planted beans in a zip lock bag and attentively watched for the outcome. The children saw the different stages in a matter of 7 days.
We also planted many other plants; tomatoes, bell peppers, corn, winter squash, cucumbers, carrots, parsley, basil and chives. “Come have a look.” We are hoping for the best garden ever.

Hello from Room 5!
We have been quite busy this past week; dying eggs, making rice crispy eggs and hearing the Easter story.
Each of our friends had the opportunity to dye an egg by picking out the food coloring(s) they wanted and placing a few drops on a scoop of rice. Next, they placed the egg on the rice, closed the container, and shook it! Each egg that was decorated had a very unique design!
After we dyed the eggs, we all had the chance to make some yummy rice crispy treats and put it inside a plastic egg!
We have all heard the Easter story, and I know that God is working in our little ones lives and they are able to recall most of the story! Blessings to you all!
Hello from Room 5!
We have been talking about the Easter story over the past few weeks and illustrating it through a story that Mrs. Joyce made and making our Resurrection Rolls.
For the Resurrection Rolls, each child had the chance to roll a marshmallow, which we used to represent Jesus’ body, in butter and a cinnamon sugar mix, representing the spices put on Jesus’ body, and rolled into a crescent roll, representing the cloth used to wrap Jesus’ body. We then put the rolls into the oven which represented the tomb. We talked about after Jesus died, they laid him in the tomb and three days later Jesus wasn’t there because He had risen at which point each child noticed that the marshmallow was gone!
