Hi Families!

It’s hard to believe with all this cold weather that spring break is right around the corner! We’re excited for March and all things spring! We’ll talk about plants, baby animals and more. We even got an early start this week when we observed earthworms in our class. 

With the weather hopefully getting warmer we’re looking forward to being able to spend more time outdoors with your little ones (and find new and exciting ways to bring nature into our classroom!) If you’re interested, here’s a quick read on some of the benefits of outdoor time for kids: https://www.google.com/amp/s/childmind.org/article/why-kids-need-to-spend-time-in-nature/amp/

On Thursday we sent home progress reports (M/W class will get yours on Monday!) Our favorite part about filling these out was reflecting on each of your children’s interest. It’s amazing to see the ways in which their individuality shines. If you have any questions or anything you want to discuss don’t hesitate to reach out to us! 

Love, 

Miss Hayley and Miss Allison

Hi Families!

It's been wonderful getting back into the swing of things. We had a blast on pajama day exploring all kinds of light with your little ones. They loved the flashlights, lanterns, Christmas lights and glow sticks. 

February is all about shapes! We've got lots of fun new toys and puzzles, books and activities planned. We are looking forward to the Valentines day parties. It's always such a joy to welcome y'all into our classroom. We can't wait to see all the fun things you have planned. However, we do request that you don't bring candy, as there are so many healthier options that are just as fun for the kids! Watermelons cut into the shape of hearts, apple sauce pouches, small toys, etc! 

One of our favorite things about teaching this age is the variety that comes with each day, even when that includes messes! As some of you may have noticed our classroom floor has recently been covered in rice. There are so many academic benefits that come with the sensory bin play your children do in our classroom. Plus, it's fun to make a mess! Whether it's water, rice, sand, or something else here is a great article detailing the benefits: https://www.naeyc.org/resources/blog/importance-sand-and-water-play

We are so thankful for all of you!

Love,

Miss Hayley and Miss Allison

Hi Families!

 

Welcome back! We hope you all had wonderful and restful breaks. We enjoyed the time off but are so excited to be back! It brought us so much joy to see how excited the little ones were to return to their classroom. Their first year of school is such a special time and we're so thrilled to see how well they've all adjusted. 

This month we're learning all about light and shadow. We have fun activities planned involving flashlights and our light table! We'll be singing songs like Mr. Golden Sun and Twinkle Twinkle. We'll be reading Goodnight Moon and God made the sun. We can't wait!

As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions!

Love,

Miss Hayley and Miss Allison
