Please continue to send your child with snow pants, boots, hats and mittens at least through the month of March. The weather can shift unexpectedly, so best to be prepared as we do enjoy going outside on the playground daily unless it is too wet, cold or slippery. Also, if your child is sick, please keep him/her home until he/she is completely well. Spring Break is just around the corner and a classroom full of germs can lead to ruined vacations.
The Twos class will complete their three week unit on colors and begin a unit on transportation during the month of March. They will learn and explore the different modes of transportation (air, water, and land). They plan on discussing safety rules and how signs communicate necessary information and help us navigate during our travels.
The Threes class will begin a unit on nutrition this month, which coincides with The Church of the Holy Spirit’s food drive. They will explore the five main food groups, discuss making healthy choices, have fun with exercise (yoga, obstacle courses, and dance) and discover many other aspects of staying healthy. March themes also include St. Patrick’s Day and spring changes. On Friday, March 6th The Threes will be having their much-anticipated Pajama Party and at the end of the month the class is looking forward to waking up their class bear, “Spidey”, after her long winter nap!
The Pre-K class will start out the month studying weather. They will learn about the seasons and the changes in their environment each season brings. This class will also open a “grocery store” in their classroom! The Pre-K will incorporate the study of nutrition in this fun unit. St. Patrick’s Day will be celebrated mid-month and the Mystery Box will be introduced.
