updates from 3 yr old program

Each week our teachers send a re-cap email, to inform parents about the classroom happenings.

Hello Everyone,

We spent two very busy, fun filled mornings together this week.  The children are learning a lot through play and are enjoying new experiences.  They are learning to share and take turns and we are having a lot of conversations about taking care of each other.  It’s important to learn compassion and empathy at a young age and we want our friends to be prepared to be good citizens.

We ask that you prepare your child for a 30 minute recess each school day. They should be equipped with a weather appropriate coat, a hat and a pair of mittens that fit their hands.  We respectfully ask you to NOT send in gloves at this time.  All of your child’s belonging should be clearly labeled with their name.   We prefer that you store your child’s hat and mittens inside their coat sleeve.  This is a fool proof way for the teachers to quickly prepare your child and 13 others for outdoor play.  We want to make sure we make the most of our recess time!

Chocolate lollipops – The lollipops Mrs. Lehane emailed you about earlier today were sent home in your child’s backpack.

WHAT WE DID IN CLASS THIS WEEK:

MUSIC: Bear Hunt , Freeze Dance,  The Reading Train, Letter Sound Song, The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Tootie Ta

ART  TABLE: Fingerprint/Handprint Itsy Bitsy Spider & Decorating paper pumpkins with stickers

Hi Everyone,

We had a great week in our classroom! 

Activities included:  

Discovery Table:  Magnifying Glasses with leaves, acorns and bark to examine.  This was a hit!  The children loved looking at the items with the magnifying glasses. 

Writing Table:  Coloring sheets-This week we were working on the color green.  

Art Easel:  Painting pumpkin worksheets with watercolors.  

Project Table:  The children were busy making candy corn.  They did a wonderful job matching the paint to the colored crayon on the sheet.  This week we used cotton balls as our paintbrushes.  There was a clothes pin attached to each cotton ball. 

Math Table:  There were fish bowl counting mats.  Each fish bowl had a number on it and the children counted out that number of fish and put them on the mat.   

On Thursday, we listened to the book The Legend of Spookley The Square Pumpkin by Joe Troiano.  In case you are interested, the movie of this story is on the Disney Channel on Wednesday, October 24th at 11:30 am.   

Today we read the book Let It Fall by Maryann Cocca-Leffler.  

As the weather is getting cooler, please put your child’s mittens inside their hat and the hat inside their jacket sleeve when you arrive at school in the morning.  This makes it much easier when we get ready to go outside for recess.  At this age mittens (not gloves) are easiest to put on.  Also, please label all hats and mittens.Thank you very much for your help with this.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely,

 

Mrs. Kelley
