The count down to kindergarten has begun. There have been many discussions about expectations and learning habits. This past week we started our transition to kindergarten by taking the children to eat in the cafeteria. The children did AWESOME.

The children had fun exploring paint this week. The children painted while listening to music, painted with simple materials and painted with their bodies.
Coming soon—–ZOO FIELD TRIP—-April 24, 2018.
Parents with children ages 6 months to 4 years of age are invited to particpate in activities that will foster their child’s growth. You may attend any school. Topics include music and movement, literacy, speech and language, fine motor, and gross motor skills. If you have any questions please contact me at your convenience.
The children will be focusing on math concepts this month. The children were introduced to the symbols of adding and subtracting at the start of school as we added and took away material from the classroom. We use the symbols now to add and subtract how many children are in the class. “Subitizing” is the new word this month. It is when an individual can instantly recognize quantity or amount. The children have been practicing with dice and have become quite good.
Parent Meeting is Thursday, January 18, 2018. Arrive promptly and be prepared to witness your child’s growth.
