Welcome to the Three’s Blue Room

Blue Room Newsletter

December

We have had another wonderful month in the Blue Room.  We enjoyed meeting with each family at conferences to discuss your child’s progress.  Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to talk with us.  

As the holiday season approaches, we will focus on the value of giving which is shared by all the winter holidays.  Please keep in mind that we will not be celebrating any one holiday at school, as we know you will be making your own special memories at home.

Please let us know if you would like to come in and share the morning with us!  You can share a cooking activity, favorite craft of holiday tradition, read a story, or lead us in a song.  We would all be happy to have you!  Look for a volunteer sign up sheet on the bulletin board.

Project News

We have been having a lot of fun with Nursery Rhymes.  So far we have read and acted out Jack and Jill, Humpty Dumpty, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and Hey Diddle Diddle (Ms. Robin brought in her Suzuki violin for all the children to play the “fiddle”).

This month we will be exploring Little Miss Muffet, Little Boy Blue, Little Jack Horner, and The Gingerbread Man!

When children are familiar with a nursery rhyme, they learn to anticipate the rhyming word.  This prepares them to make predictions when they read.

In addition to our nursery rhyme theme, we have been reviewing the calming techniques to use in the Safe Place.  Be sure to ask your child about STAR, Ballooning, Pretzel, and Drain.  We are also addressing the concept of kindness and what it means to be kind.  You might see some small blue “kindness notes” coming home.  Please encourage your child to share these notes with you.
