Preschool Office News: We are asking all parents who are concerned about bug bites, or sun exposure to make sure to spray bug spray/apply sunscreen to students prior to arriving at school. If you haven’t done so already, please bring in your child’s tuition, medical form (with doctor’s signature), and extra change of clothes. For Friday lunches, please remember to pack a drink and spoons. Finally, don’t forget those license plate numbers!

Mixed-up Chameleons News: Today at school we learned LOTS of things about the color red! We stood up and pointed to the red we were wearing while singing our red song. We did a science experiment with water, making a hypothesis/prediction/guess about what would happen when we put in a “tablet”. We used the red items we brought to school to participate in a music and movement activity called “Colors” by Hap Palmer. We also read the book “Bear Sees Colors”. Next week we will focussing on “B is for Bear” and the color blue.

Very Hungry Caterpillar & Very Busy Spider News:  Each day, your preschooler learns Social Studies, Basic Concepts, Reading readiness skills, math skills, Science, participates in Music and Art, and is read Children’s Literature and poetry. As the year progresses, we will add Geography, Health, History and Art skills. To highlight our week of Social Studies, we sang our Welcome song, went over our “How I Act” plan, had calendar activities, weather and weather wheel, learned how to sit on the rug, and learned The Pledge of Allegiance. We moved our body to the sounds the “magic slide whistle” made and followed the “pointer stick”. Next week we will be focussing on “B is for Bear”.

Panda Bear News: The two year old class had a very successful first full week. At circle time, we did our fish felt board story where the kids practice 9 different colors and counting. We sang the song “Wheels on the Bus” and our “Hello” song.

This week during art we played with play dough and shaving cream and painted with q-tips. You probably know the color based on your kids clothing! The kids did a fabulous job walking down the hall in a line today. In the next couple of weeks you might hear them singing our hallway song, “Put your finger on the wall.” Lastly, the kids had a good time outside playing. It has been fun getting to know your children even better this week. They are a great group!

Friday Enrichment Class News:  This week we will continue learning our routine and our preschool pals names. The children had a wonderful class last week and we hope to continue through the whole year!  Also our letter this week will be B. Please have your child bring in a picture that starts with the letter B for us to hang on the alphabet wall.  Our books for the day will be “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and “The Box”.  Please remember to pack your child a small snack to place in the red wagon next to our door. We will provide the water.
