Apple of our Eye:
Each week we will feature a child on our wall. When it is your child's turn please have them bring in a collage for the wall. Please make it on 8.5x11" paper so it can be put in the memory books after. You can connect 2 or 3 pages together. Please include pictures, drawings and a little bit about them. Please encourage them to do some of the writing, especially their names. The 4's are getting really good at forming letters. We break down each letter to lines (tall and short ones) and circles. Some fun questions you can ask and put on the collage are:
-What is your favorite colour?
-What is your favorite animal?
-What is your favorite food?
-What do you want to be when you are older?
-What does mommy/daddy do while you are at school?
-How old will you be when you start working? etc...

We already started last month. If your child missed their day, he or she is welcome to bring it when they are finished.

The four year olds have been working on their cutting skills and are doing awesome.

Over the next few months the threes will continue strengthening their pincher grasps and working more on writing their names. We have been working on problem solving, taking turns, and social skills. They are coming along quite nicely!  

Pete the Cat is coming for a sleep over!!!
The 4 year olds will get to bring Pete home. With him will be his favorite story and class journal. Each child will get a page to draw a picture, label or paste a picture of their adventures with Pete. They can practice writing their name on their picture and any other words. The letters we have done in class so far and will soon be working on are: T, S, A, I, P, N, M, L, C, K, R, H, E, O, G, D. For example they could write: Pete the Cat, car, park, etc... Bring Pete back two class days later (for example: take home Monday, bring back Friday). When each child brings Pete back they will get to tell the class about their adventure.

Teacher's Wish List:

We will be making Leprechaun traps next week please send your child with a few clean recyclable items that can be used. Some examples: plastic bottles, yogurt containers, cardboard, paper bags, etc... he is attracted to shiny objects. Nothing sharp please. Leprechauns can be sneaky, maybe we will actually catch him this year! 

Do you or someone you know work somewhere that would be neat for the class to tour? Or would you or someone you know want to be a guest in our classroom (for example: police, fire, radio station, EMS, etc...) If yes, please talk with Ms. Michelle.

Thank you to Quinlan's Dad (John) for coming out to speak with the 4 year olds. It was very informative and they enjoyed the visit.
