Good evening Parents! Just wanted to touch base! We are having some fabulous days together! If you check out our private FB page you will get a peek into our classroom. Last week we had some fun with the letter P and learning some new words. By far our favorite was the use of “pardon me” when asking a question. Each day the morning message highlights a certain letter and I try to write the most ridiculous message to the children! They LOVE IT! Each afternoon I put on my “reading socks” (without a word)and they know it is STORY TIME!!!!! Clean up time is done in a snap once those reading socks come out!!We always start with a Bible story then dive into more books! Speaking of reading… How can you help your child learn to read? 1. READ to them! 2. Explore environmental print. That print they see every day? Yep! Promotes reading! Street Signs? Yes! Cheerios boxes? Yes!
Beginning next week, I will be accepting trash! The first item I would like everyone to bring in is your child’s favorite breakfast item! Favorite cereal box, waffle box, pancake box, oatmeal box etc.. EMPTY of course! After that, empty boxes or containers of well known foods or items that your child sees every day can be sent in. We have started a small collection hanging up in our room of empty bags of Cheezits , Popcorners, Dunkin Donuts box… Environmental print is so awesome! It’s also fun to see Mrs. Welsh giving tours and they come to room 8 and see “trash” hanging all over! PRINT IS EVERYWHERE! Let’s make the most of every day items!
Lastly, with the scary flu going around, I just wanted to let you all know that we wipe our tables and toys down at least 5 times a day and I use a bleach and water solution at the end of the day when the kids leave. We wash hands with soap and water many times during the day and I stress proper washing techniques. We are absolutely trying our best to keep germs at bay. As always, if you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
