Good morning! Thank goodness this warmth is melting the skating rink in my driveway! Hopefully it will be warm enough for us to play outside this week as well.
We will be continuing our winter/snow/mitten activities this week both in the morning and afternoon classes. IN the morning, we will be working a lot on matching colors, shapes and patterns on mittens. We'll practice clipping them together with clothespins too! Clothespins are a super fun way to practice fine motor skills, both at school and at home!
The afternoon class will begin talking a bit about measurement with mittens. We'll be taking a loot at how long our mittens are with different items such as unifix cubes, crayons, etc. We'll also be practicing numeral sequencing and identification with mittens as well.
We will begin exploring letters with diagonal lines in the afternoon class. Tomorrow will be "N Day"--N is for Ninja Turtles! We've been working in our "8" book and will be beginning "9" by the end of the week (hopefully!).
I'm hoping to have progress reports and graded IEP's out by the end of the week, and feel free to reach out if you'd like to schedule a parent/teacher conference.
Have all afternoon parents registered their child for Kindergarten?
Are all morning parents planning to have their child return to the afternoon session next year?
Does anyone know people with children who would like to be screened to be a role model for next year's classes? Let me know asap!
I realize Valentine's Day is a couple of weeks out, but I wanted to put it out there now. ONLY THE 4YEAR OLD CLASS WILL BE EXCHANGING VALENTINES THIS YEAR. So many of the valentines contain candy, and we have NUT and GLUTEN restrictions in the MORNING class so we'll just skip that part. We will still have our party and more information will go out about that next week.
Thanks for understanding-enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!
