Can you believe that it’s February already? Warmer weather seems to be right around the corner but don’t forget to keep sending in coats, hats and gloves for those chilly days. We will go outside if temps are above freezing and the weather permits. It does not always warm up much by the time that we go outside for the morning.
I know many of you are beginning to think about summer camps and some of you just read that and had a panic attack because it hasn’t even crossed your mind… Either way, we have you covered… for a couple of weeks at least. Our camp weeks will be May 31-June 3 (Outer Space theme) and June 6-9 (Robots & Engineering Theme). Registration will begin March 7 – look for the link to register via email on March 7. You will receive a discounted rate if you register by Friday, May 1 at 12 p.m.
We had a great time at our Winter Dance Party last month. Thanks to everyone that came to party with us! We are looking forward to Sweetheart’s Day next week as well as Dr. Seuss’ Birthday party in March. The Story Lady (who was at our Fall Carnival) will be here to help us celebrate Dr. Seuss. Both events should be a great time!

The month of December has been filled with lots of great learning and fun! We are excited to recognize Mason for being our first letter expert! He presented the class with the letter Bb. Way to go Mason.
Literacy- This month we enjoyed working on the following concepts: rhyming, making predictions, asking questions and connecting text to life experiences.
Math- In math this month, we created a winter bar graph and learned to count to 100. We used Jack Hartmann’s “Count to 100” song that not only helps us with number recognition but also gets us fit at the same time.
Social Studies- In social studies this month, we learned about Dr. King. We found out that Dr. King wanted everyone to be treated fairly. To honor his legacy we talked about what “our dream” would be. We also created a unity board located in the upstairs hallway.
Art- In art this month, we made snowman in the wind, “Snowy Day Art” inspired by the beloved Ezra Jack Keats book and we made an interactive snow scene that can be viewed from our upstairs window.
The month of February will be equally as exciting. We will explore Valentine’s Day, Black History Month, and President’s Day. We will also have another wonderful cooking demo by Mrs. Perryman. We also look forward to Sweetheart Day!
