Good Morning Families,

Our theme this week was color mixing to make secondary colors. We first heard the book, “Little Yellow and Little Blue,” In the story, Little Yellow hugs Little Blue and they become green. We duplicated the action using little balls of yellow and blue play dough and mashed them together to get the new color. On the next day, the class created their own green monster after listening to the book, “Go Away Big Green Monster,” by Ed Emberley. I highly recommend checking this entertaining book out from the public library. On Thursday, the children mixed yellow and red paint to paint Gilbert Goldfish after this book was read to them. Lastly, the class made purple shaving cream when red and blue paint was applied. “Purplelicious” is the perfect story for this activity.

The boys and girls did a great job of rotating small groups so we can have our first meeting of the Investigator Club. They were introduced to Dilly Gator, her brother J T and to Auntie Lu. They heard the story about how the Investigator Club started with the building of the clubhouse (tree house.)

Parent -Teacher Conferences are approaching on Mon. Sept, 24 and Tues. Sept. 25. Please email me to let me know if you have a time and day preference. I am unable to schedule any conferences on that Tues from 8-9 a.m. because of a staff workshop.

We celebrated our first 4 yr. old birthday with Nikhil! Cookie cakes or mini cupcakes are the preferred snack for birthdays. Each child will get to pick a toy from our own birthday “cake” when we celebrate their special day. Happy birthday Nikhil!
