Welcome to the Red Room
2 year-old Class
Red Room Newsletter
We have just wrapped up our Fall and pumpkin activities. We explored the insides of a pumpkin and discovery it was filled with slimy guts! A big thank you to all of our parents who volunteered and came to experience our pumpkin festival. It was a perfect day and the children really seemed to have fun with making music shakers, and eating our homemade pumpkin muffins!
We have recently noticed that all of our friends enjoy pretending to be teachers and leading their friends in our songs and finger plays. We hope to let each child take a turn leading their own circle time.
During November and December we will explore families. During these months we will emphasize how families are alike and different and who is part of our family. We will practice counting to ten and identifying the first letters of our names.
Red Room Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, November 9th. On November 9th, the morning class will dismiss at 11:20 instead of 11:50. This does not affect extended day children. At this time, we will share a developmental report with you and let you know how your child is progressing.
“Having somewhere to go is Home.
Having someone to love is Family.
Having both is a Blessing”
Thank you for being a part of our Discovery family! Have a safe and happy holiday season!
