Can you believe we are already headed into March? Hopefully spring weather is right around the corner, and we can finally thaw out of this long winter!
We have a busy month ahead of us. As you may know, March is Reading Month and we are very excited to take full advantage of it! Each Tuesday, the toddler room will have a "Fun Day" to celebrate. See the events below for more information!
We will be learning about Dr. Seuss, St. Patrick's Day and the color green, spring, and, of course, Easter.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new friend Henry! Welcome to the Babes in Toyland family!
Our St. Patrick's Day Party will be Tuesday March 17. A sign up sheet will be posted the prior week for your convenience.
Mark your calendars for these exciting events!

Because of the children's interests, during the month of March we will be starting a unit on 'Cars, Trucks and Buses'. Through participation in the planned activities, the children will learn all about any number of means of transportation, ranging from specific names for various vehicles to everything else associated with them.
Some of the activities planned for this unit include: painting with cars, reading books about vehicles we see in the street, setting up a gas station in the dramatic play area, washing cars and trucks with sponges and soapy water for a fun sensory experience, and making car garages out of cardboard boxes.
In celebration St Patrick's Day we'll be making paper shamrocks and baking green cookies and muffins. Everyone is welcome to wear their favorite St Patrick's Day shirt or dress up whichever way they'd like.
The featured book of this month is going to be "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr Seuss. The children will learn about rhyming words and funny looking foods that, though weird looking, are always worth a try.
Have a wonderful month of March!
