It is very cold and windy on the yard so please remember to dress your child in layers. Sending extra mittens is also a very good idea, as they can get very wet. Remember to allow your child to practice zipping up zippers. They are doing a fantastic job changing out of or into outdoor clothing. We do this 6 times per day! We have been talking about what it means to be responsible at school and at home. Examples that the children gave are: brushing your teeth, cleaning up after yourself, putting garbage in the garbage can, washing hands, taking a bath, hanging up their things, pushing in chairs, doing the dishes, and helping to feed their baby brother or sister.
Today we talked about fairy tales and how new stories can be created using familiar stories and changing parts. Mme Hillen's group reenacted Goldy Locks and the Three Bears, while Mme Tipler's group read 2 variations of this book. We have also began reading a play entitled, "La poule Maboule". It is similar to "Chicken Little", where Chicken Little thinks the skies is falling because an acorn fell on his head.
JK Interviews: Today you will find your interview time, on February 25th, if you did not send a time request to us. Please send us an email or call Mme Manni if you need to change the time that we gave you.
SK Report Cards: Please sign and return your child's report card, along with the envelope so we can reuse them for next term report cards.
Trip: March 1st - Maple Sugar Shack
Lice: Please check your child for lice as we had a student present with lice this week.
We will be away the afternoon on March 28th for a kindergarten conference.
