Our classroom this month will be transformed into a magical, mythical kingdom where we concentrate on fairytales, rainbows, and farm animals. Something brand new will happen every single week in this room so get ready for some fun surprises! 

We continue to focus on manners and the tender battle of taking turns. Your twos are turning threes and are feeling more and more certain of themselves. Mrs. Shackelford and I will continue to navigate these new waters with them (and you all) and make sure every little voice continues to be heard. 

Spring is such a glorious time of year, and we are so ready to celebrate its beauty!

Love and Hugs,

Mrs. Pound and Mrs. Shackelford

Valentine’s Day parties will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 13th for our M/W families and on Thursday, Feb. 14th for our T/TH families. The celebration begins at 11 am in our room, and all are welcome. Remember to send your sweethearts in their Valentines outfits!

Spirit day is Wednesday, Feb. 20th. Wear all that red and blue to show your love for your Day School!

Many of our kids returned from the Christmas break potty trained! We fully respect that everyone of your kids progresses at his/her own pace, and we are thrilled to help them out in any way you need us. It’s such an exciting time, and we are here for you!

February’s focus is on manners. Simple “pleases” and thank yous” are being introduced at snack time, and we are working on the concept of taking turns. We’d love your assistance with this at home just to keep their day consistent.

We are so grateful for all you do for Room 117! Our hearts are full!

Spirit Day is Jan. 15th and in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr., we are not in school on Jan. 21st.

With Christmas break but a memory, January has us all snowed in! Our theme this month is winter, and we have all sorts of fun things planned. Art has us making snowflakes, snowmen, and snow globes. We will also be working in polar bears and mittens so our young artists are going to be quite busy!

We are throwing and catching snowballs, building igloos with ice cubes and blocks, and bundling up with scarves, mittens, and hats in dramatic play. Hopefully the month will bring us real snow to play in as well!

If any of you has spare mittens, scarves, and hats, we’d love to add them to our collection. And as always, we appreciate all you do for us in Room 117! Happy new year!!
