HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Last month the children focused on Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, and The New Year. The children had so much fun at the Holiday Party and loved making holiday projects. THANK YOU to all who contributed to making our party a wonderful success! The children had a wonderful experience with Santa visiting. He came to visit us to bring presents and have fun! The children loved opening their presents and showing their friends what Santa had brought for them. Thank you Santa, you were GREAT!!
The New Year has arrived, all too quickly. This upcoming month we will be focusing on: Winter, Martin Luther King’s Day, Farm Animals and Our 5 Senses. We are observing the weather outside and how the temperature has been changing. We will be focusing on winter weather and the fun things to do during this season, such as, play in the snow, make snowmen, or snow angels, etc. We are also discussing how we dress in the winter. Our classroom will be turned into a winter wonderland, filled with fabulous winter decorations such as, snowflakes and penguins that the children have made and are making. For Martin Luther King Jr. Day the class will be reading stories and doing projects learning about his accomplishments. We will focus on how Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the world to have peace and harmony.
The Nursery and Preschool Classes will be working on poems, Winter themed artwork, new songs, writing skills with “Handwriting Without Tears”, learning how to write and spell their name, letters, numbers and shapes. We will be working with the letters Qq, Rr, Ss, Tt, and numbers 90 – 100, colors, patterns, months, seasons. The children are learning new words during our circle time, such as, January, Winter, Senses, Smell, Taste, See and Hear. The children also enjoy doing music, movement and exercise everyday. They are really doing well and love to do their projects too!
Everyday at circle time the Toddler Class will continue name Recognition, Shapes, Numbers, Colors and Alphabet Recognition. The children also enjoy doing music, movement and exercise everyday. They are really doing well and love to do their projects too! **TODDLERS will be picked up at WHITE DOOR (Toddler Class ONLY) This avoids traffic in the hall – Thank you!**
