Sharing: This week the Eeyores will share. This will be our last month of sharing this year. The assignment is Going Places. For sharing time your child may share pictures, maps, and souvenirs from a remembered vacation. Also, your child might tell about summer vacation plans. You may wish to help your child
create a photo collage or book of an actual or imagined family trip. Your child might use photos, drawings, postcards, and mementos to tell the story. Feel free to write down your child’s story in his or her own words.
Have fun! This will be our last share of the year so be sure to check the calendar for your child’s share day.
We are very excited about our field trip to the Santa Monica Aquarium this Thursday. Please remember to send a lunch and water. Send a snack that is easy (not messy) to eat such as a snack bar. We will have a few minutes to eat a quick snack right when we arrive at the Pier. We will eat our lunch at picnic tables by the play equipment at the beach.
*All children must wear shoes and socks!
*Please prepare your child with sunscreen and a hat is fine.
*Bring a sweatshirt for the morning hours.
We are still finishing up our Fairy Tale books. The children are doing an amazing job and have written their "about the author" page.
We are still working on learning the chain stitch crocheting. It has been so great having Katie help this week. If you would like to come in to help working with a few children at a time just let me know. I would like each child to create a chain to display in class and then they can take it home.
Science is exciting in Room K! We have Painted Lady caterpillars, seashells and an ocean mural, plants growing and now it is time to begin our science experiments, growing bacteria! The children are very excited and many have been asking about it.
We are officially beginning our Kings & Queens of Manners lessons. Each child will be able to earn a crown bedazzled with jewels of different colors. On Friday we made our crowns and now the children will earn their jewels. Our official coronation ceremony will be the last day of school. Help your child practice at home and we will recognize the good manners we see at school.
