 Mixed-up Chameleons News-(Kindergarten Preparation Class)-Today we read the book “Snowy Day” by Ezra Jack Keats.  We learned more about Keats and about seasons, as we transition from our right to read weeks to our season study.  We are also working on rhyming words, opposites and number recognition.  Any reinforcement you can do at home would be helpful. 🙂

Very Hungry Caterpillar and Very Busy Spider News- This week we learned about Leo Lionni, Lois Ehlert and Margaret Wise Brown.  We participated in making a “little blue, little yellow=little green, made a “runaway bunny: and painted with broccoli.

Friday Enrichment Class with Mrs. Susan:    This past week the children learned all about bears and hibernation.  We read “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”, went on a bear hunt and made bears out of circles.  Next week we will be talking about St. Patrick’s Day, shamrocks, potatoes and what lies at the end of the rainbow.  All of this week’s activities will focus on counting and number recognition.  We are also learning to spell our names.  The letter this week will be U.

Brown Bear/Polar Bear News:  (Mrs. Katrina & Mrs. Kim)-  Next week we will start some farm themed crafts.  The kids will be getting their pigs all “muddy” and adding feathers to their little chicks.  We will start two new fingerplays next week:  “Little Chick, Little Chick” and “Little Puppy.”  We will continue with our same songs “We’re going to the Farm” (Farmer in the Dell), “Farm Sounds” (Wheels on the Bus), and P-I-G-G-Y (Bingo).
