Welcome to our classroom. It was wonderful meeting everyone last week. Your children really enjoyed their first day(s). This week we are going to get to know one another through songs, playtime, snack, art projects and books. The weather forecast for the week is a good one—sunny days that will not be too hot. We can go outside and play on the playground and use our large muscles (gross motor skills). Please send your children in sneakers or rubber-soled shoes so they may play safely outdoors.
This week we will introduce our routines: the calendar, weather chart, the shape of the month (a circle), and the color of the month (yellow), and circle time. We will learn our days of the week song, our weather song, and The Wheels on the Bus. We will be singing a lot this year, so don’t be surprised if your child serenades you in the car or at home.
If you have not already sent in your child’s change of clothes, diapers/pull-ups, wipes, sweater/hoodie, old t-shirt to be used as a smock, and shoe box; please send it in as soon as you can. It doesn’t all have to come in on the same day.
We will send home a book order this week. There is no obligation to buy anything. Next month, we will introduce our Rainbow Catcher. More specific information will come home about it then.
Looking forward to a great week and a great year!
Miss Louise, Miss Alexa, & Miss Enedina
