Classroom Happenings-November

 

Welcome to November where the weather is changing and pie is baking!

In the Blue Room, we are working on science exploration.  The children love exploring and learning new things, and, in the Blue Room, we want to promote that.  Be on the lookout for our new and improved science area and science experiences.  We are also learning how to express our feelings.  We will be helping our young learners see themselves as writers.  Journals and sign in questions are just two of the many ways writing will be highlighted.

Information:

I would like to give an open invitation to all parents to come and read a story to our class.  Our story time is 11:30-11:50 each day.  You can pick any book from our shelf or bring a special book from home.  The kids love story time.  It is great to see our parents come and read to them.

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!
