What did we do this week in the 3’s?
Morning Circle: This week, we read 5 Little Pumpkins, by Dan Yaccarino. The children did a great job acting out the story. Ask them to show you! We also did some singing and dancing. Dancing with scarves to the Color Song is a class favorite!
Please label all outerwear (coat, hat, mittens) with your child’s name. ALSO- please send your child with MITTENS, NO GLOVES PLEASE. We have lots of hands to get covered up for cold weather, and mittens are much easier for children to manage. Lastly, please remember to have your child use the bathroom (even if they just went at home)/ change wet pull-ups before entering the classroom. This will reduce first-thing bathroom trips and allow the children to have their full center time to play and learn. THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION!
