April Kindergarten Curriculum

In the April Kindergarten Curriculum , we are talking about Spring.

It is an exciting unit because it ties in many parts of the curriculum!

You can discus growing, changing and renewing during this time.

It wouldn't be spring in a Kindergarten room if you didn't try to grow seeds, discuss animals and their babies and make a project that uses flowers!
