Students are engaged in observation and questioning throughout these types of activities.
Students sit at their cots and use dry erase markers and erase boards. We encourage children to practice making shapes, drawing, printing their name or practicing how to print letters and numbers. This is a quiet activity while teachers help students clean up from lunch and prepare their cots for rest.
Students are practicing cutting skills using playdoh and scissors. We also have silly scissors and hole punchers in our sand table for students to build their fine motor control, eye hand coordination and focus or concentration on their work. Working with their peers also helps to build their skills in building relationships with other children and language.
As we get closer to winter and cold weather please be sure your child has the appropriate gear to go outside everyday!
Mittens or Gloves
Hat and Scarf
Heavy Coat and Snow pants
I know these tend to sell out pretty quickly so please be sure to start looking now so that your child will be prepared.
This is an optional meeting but we encourage and appreciate your participation.
This is not the students favorite part of the day but it is very much needed for children’s optimal growth. We remind students that they do not have to sleep but they must have quiet voices and calm bodies on their cots.
We play / work very hard at school and it’s important for students to recharge their minds and bodies.
They have been wonderful in following this part of the day. We talk to them about how rest time helps their brains and bodies. Please support us and talk to your children about the importance of rest time.
Here are a few pictures so you can see how well your children are doing!!
This year is off to a great start. Students are adjusting very well to their first time away from their families and in a school setting! We are looking forward to a great year!

It was so nice to meet our students and their families last week as we completed the enrollment paperwork.
We will be starting home visits next week. Everyone received a reminder note for their specific date and time; however, if you have any questions please call us at 313. 827. 6150 or email me at email@example.com
Please remember the home visit is a part of GSRP. The main purpose of the visit is to create a foundation for the beginning of a positive partnership between home and school. It is designed to ease the transition into GSRP for the child and family.
Mrs. Nasser and I are so excited. We are looking forward to a wonderful year of fun and learning.
