It’s hard to believe that February is finishing up this week! I’ve had a wonderful time this month getting to know your children- they are all so precious! I hope that you all had a restful and fun break too.
Our Valentine’s last week was a sweet one with plenty of snacks and passing out our cards to all of our friends. A big thank you to all of you for helping your child write their name on all those Valentine’s! They are doing such a great job and I am proud of their accomplishments!
We have been busy learning this month and have finished letters H and W. This week, we introduced the letter V (it’s Mrs. Steitz’ favorite letter- we’re going to make a paper vulture on Friday)! In class today, we came up with twelve words that start with the letter V. I’ve asked the students to put their thinking caps on to come up with more words and asked them to quiz you all for some different ones too. 🙂
In math, we have been busy practicing our patterns and I have asked each student to be part of our “pattern police” and to let me know when they see one out on our Wood Acres campus or at home with you! We’re also starting a unit on height and length and Ms. Steitz and I are doing lots of fun, hands on activities with the children to help them understand the concepts and they’re all doing really well! Science this week will have us in the lab learning about volcanoes, as well as learning about predicting what will happen vs what did happen.
On March 2nd, we’re going to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday by wearing silly socks and decorating our own paper socks. Fox in Socks was my favorite book growing up and I’m excited to share the book with them. I also have some fun STEM activities planned that tie in Dr. Seuss and gravity 🙂 I’ll send out an email reminder about the socks on Friday as well.
Thank you again for allowing me to be a part of your child’s educational journey. I adore each and every one of them and watching them learn and grow this month has brought me such joy.
