“How did it get so late so soon? It’s night before it’s afternoon. December is here before it’s June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” - Dr. Seuss
Welcome to March! The year is flying by, but hopefully spring is finally here and we will be able to spend more time outside. Please make sure your child is dressed in layers, as we want them to be comfortable while playing outside everyday no matter what the weather may throw at us.
During the months of January and February, the children honed their Internet research skills by using a laptop to find facts about the New England states. These facts were shared with the group so that the children could also learn from each other. Also during meeting, the children learned the lyrics to the “50 States that Rhyme Song,” which was practiced and sang as a group almost every day. The children have worked so hard on the song, and during March they will have the chance to perform in front of other HEDP groups!
Additionally in the upcoming month, the children will be reading Dr. Seuss books and work on creating rhyming words just like the rhyming master himself, Dr. Seuss. We will enjoyed some Dr. Seuss themed snacks such as “One Fish, Two Fish” goldfish, “Cat in the Hat” kabob made out of bananas and strawberries, and of course, Green Eggs and Ham. All of these activities will challenge the children to read and and follow directions and practice mathematical skills such as creating patterns and measuring.
The children have shared that they enjoy and look forward to participating in arts and music projects led by Zoe on Mondays, Wednesday's, and Fridays, so these activities will continue during the month of March. Our special readers will continue to share stories with the class every Tuesday during the month of March.
A couple of reminders: Please sign your child out EVERYDAY! All belongings left at extended will be taken to the lost and found at the end of each day.
