Week of January 20th

Hello Parents:

We are need of cotton balls for our sensory table. We appreciate all donations. We are in need of new play dough for the month of February and beyond. Please sign up if you are willing to make us a big batch! Thank you!

Please remember that we will most likely go outdoors if the weather is appropriate. Please remember to send appropriate winter gear, so that the children can warmly explore outdoors during the long winter months. If anyone has any gently used winter gear (hats, mittens, snow pants, and boots) and they would like to donate them we would really appreciate it.
We would also appreciate any gently used clothing for girl’s sizes four and five.

We are still observing the students and thinking of worthy project topics. We are leaning towards some sort of construction or water project. The children are always excited about the sensory and light table experiences. We also have the majority of the students using some sort of building manipulatives, especially after nap time. If these are topics that continue to be of interest of the students we will plan to begin the study in the spring. If we do a construction project we will most likely go on several neighborhood walks exploring the various construction happening in the neighborhood. During water exploration the children tend to often get clothes wet. We want to make sure it is warm enough outside to do some water exploration and warm enough to assist with drying damp clothes quickly.

We will have a small Valentine’s Day celebration on Friday, February 14th. If your child would like to bring valentines for their classmates we ask that you assist your child with signing their name on their valentine. We also ask that all edible treats are store bought and nut free. The children also love treats like pencils and stickers.
