What has happened:
Are you ready for a marvelous March? We are! This past month in February we built igloos out of sugar cubes and frosting, made valentines day cards for our loved ones, and tried new musical instruments! During the letter of the week unit everyone is expanding their vocabulary as we introduce new words every week to go along with our focus letter. They are also learning how these letters sound at the beginning of the words and how to listen for their sound.
What is to come:
March will be filled with 6 letters! The first week of March will include both the letters N and O. For the letter N we will be making noodle necklaces and for the letter O we will be learning fun and exciting things about octopuses. The second week will be dedicated to letter P for Plays! We will be using the story lines from some classic short stories to create scenery in our classroom and act it out. For the letter Q we will be focused on creating a paper quilt in order to encourage classroom unity. The following week will be be about Rain and Rainbows for the letter R. The last week of March will be all about space! As a class we will be encouraged to learn about things like the names of the planets and how far apart they are from each other.
News to note:
Please continue to pack your child with a lunch that includes fruit, veggies and protein. In addition, we encourage you to update your child's change of clothes as the weather is changing.
Have a Merry March !
