December

November Learning

In November, we focused on family and we enjoyed our Thankful Brunch.  We learned the letters of our first names and had different activities to practice letter recognition and letter writing.  We also completed some fine motor projects and learned about patterning.

December Learning

In the month of December we will focus on “bringing in Winter.”  We will do projects, talk about people’s jobs who work in Winter, talk about Winter vocabulary, and snow fun!  We will turn our house keeping area into a snow play area.  We will continue this wintery fun learning as long as the children are interested.

*Please watch Channels 2 and 5 for closure information.  We will also post on Facebook and email information to parents.

*Soiled clothes are kept in a grocery bag in a purple tub above the cubbies.

*We strive to be a peanut free zone, so please do not bring any peanut products into the building.

*For the safety of your child, please bring him or her in tennis shoes.  If they attend school in something else, they will only be allowed to play on the patio during recess.
