Welcome to Room AHome of the A1 Owls and the A3 Froggies!
February is going to be a busy month in Room A! We will be learning about Groundhog Day, and making groundhog headbands. We will also be celebrating Elmo's birthday by eating special snacks and playing crazy games. We have a special visitor coming to teach us and the other preschool classes about dancing. That will be some high energy fun! Valentine's Day is also coming up, and we will share special cards and a party with our classmates. We will wear our pj's to school and have a Pajama Day celebration. Lastly, we will continue to learn about colors by celebrating Pink Day with games, crafts and snacks!
March will also be loads of fun. We will have a birthday party for Dr. Seuss and read many of his terrific books. Green Day will be our color celebration this month, and we will decorate with mosaic shamrocks we make ourselves. Hopefully, there will be a visit by a leprechaun- one that leaves yummy treats! Then we will take some time to learn about owls. Before you know it, we will be taking a well-deserved break- Spring Break- from March 24 through March 30.
Each week we will continue to have our wonderful music classes with Tr. Chris. We will also enjoy having Tr. Mimi come and read to us at snack time.
There is much fun in store for Room A. We will be having a great time in the coming months.
Enjoy!Tr. Kim and Tr. Lori
The A1 class had special visitors. Parents (originally from India) came and taught us about the celebration of Diwali- the Festival of Lights. We enjoyed sweet treats and making beautiful Rangoli patterns.
In December, the A3 class will enjoy special parent presentations on Sinterklaas and Hanukkah. Both classes will be learning about the celebrations and traditions of Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa. We will be practicing our songs for our Holiday Show, baking cookies, spinning dreidels and making gifts for our families. We will also have Red Day with fun red activities.
January will be cold, so please make sure to send your child to school with mittens and a hat. We may even need snow suits and boots! Speaking of snow, we will be learning about snow and ice. We will make some “indoor snow” and create our own Snowmen. Obviously, this month we will have White Day (to go with the snow!) We will also talk about Martin Luther King, Jr. and encourage everyone to participate in acts of service on Jan. 21.
We are having so much fun in Room A, and all the upcoming events and holidays are going to be GREAT!
Enjoy the fun of the season!
