Classroom Happenings-February

 

Brr! Winter is still here, but warm hearts make it all better!

It’s a new month in the Blue Room.  We are finishing up career week.  We had a lot of great guest speakers and learning activities.  Now, we will be incorporating the Winter Olympics into our activities and talking about the different equipment the athletes use.  We will also be learning new vocabulary like race, sticks, and puck.

We will begin Child of the Day this month.  This is where each child gets to bring in a favorite stuffed animal, a favorite book, and a healthy snack to share with the class.  I will send email reminders with more details when it is your child’s turn.

Have a fabulous February!

Ms. Elisabeth is from Rockledge, Florida, about 45 minutes from Orlando.  She was born and raised there.  She has been in the early childhood field for 15 years.   She has been employed by the school system for the past two years teaching Early Preschool and she has also worked with autistic students.  She will be completing her bachelor’s degree in the spring of 2017.  She lives her her husband of 13 years, her high school sweetheart.  They have two children ages 10 and 7.  They have just moved to Illinois.  They enjoy traveling.  She says it is nice to meet new people.  She has a love for cooking/baking.  She cooks anything because it is therapeutic for her and she loves cooking for people.  She has always loved teaching children and is very excited to get the ball rolling.

Ms. Marcy

My early work experience with children includes camp counselor, archery instructor, and park recreationalist.  With a love of science, I completed a bachelor’s in Wildlife & Fisheries in 1994.  After becoming a military wife and mother of two, I have moved eight times!  When my children began elementary school, I volunteered in their Hands on Science program, worked as a substitute teacher, and began a Girl Scout troop.  I have worked in daycare in Virginia, after school programs with school-aged children in Tennessee, and cared for two infants in my home in Arkansas.  With the final move to O’Fallon, I enrolled at SWIC and earned my Associate’s in Early Childhood in December of 2016.  I volunteered for a couple months in the Green Room before becoming a substitute for Discovery School.  Now I am very excited to get to know my Blue Room friends and to work with Ms. Elisabeth.  I welcome the chance to teach as well as learn from them!
