Thank you again for coming to Parent Night in our room! I know it was a challenge between work and getting a babysitter so you could attend this important meeting. It was much appreciated.
In our class this week, we heard stories of families and friends, sang songs, performed finger plays and made the cutest projects that adorn our classroom. One of my favorite family stories is “Possum Come A Knockin’.” (the author omitted the letter ”o” from opossum.) It’s a funny story of a hillbilly family who hears a opossum knockin’ at the door Speaking of families, thank you for sending in your family photos. I am making a family album which I will send home with the snack child everyday. Hopefully, you will look at the photos TOGETHER and it will spark a conversation about the children in our class.
We spoke about sharing and what it means to be a good friend. Friendships are definitely blooming in the 3 Yr. Old room. The boys and girls made cute friendship bracelets to give to their friends. What a good fine motor project too.
In Spanish, we met Paco ( a Toucan) who is teaching the group to name colors in Spanish. The children sing along and play games with Senora Thorogood, our Spanish teacher (See photo below). Just think, by the time they are in 8th grade at Wood Acres, they will be fluent in Spanish!! How wonderful will that be!!
We also had our first Fire Drill and I must say that the class did such an amazing job!
We will soon start a sticker board on your child’s folder. The children will collect stickers for outstanding work or actions through the year. I wonder who will collect the most stickers by May?
We welcome a new student to our class from Texas this coming Tuesday……her name is Charleston Riddle, but she goes by Charlie!! So happy to have you join our room Charlie!! Now we have an equal number of girls and boys….14! Please adjust snacks for our class.
This coming week, our focus will be on mixing colors to make secondary colors and the Investigator Club will begin too.
Have a restful and enjoyable Labor Day holiday.
See you Tuesday,
Wanda and Erika
