This spring, the toddlers have been busy learning animal and color names by reading the book "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," and they have even put together their own books! We will continue to learn about different animals as we enter into April. We will take a closer look at frogs, the rainforest, Earth, and of course spring and Easter!
Please join your child for breakfast during drop off hours (6:30-9:00) on April 2! Babes in Toyland will provide many delicious breakfast choices for your enjoyment. Later that morning, each classroom will have an egg hunt during outside time! Don't forget to send in a dozen (12) filled eggs so all the kids can participate in the hunt. Our morning outside time is at 10:30.
Hopefully the weather will soon start to get warmer! Please make sure you check your child's daily sheet each day. This is how we will let you know if you need to send in extra clothes for your child's cubby. We will be sending home winter gear and outgrown clothes within the next couple of weeks.
Dramatic Play Donations
We have been working on replacing the plastic play food in our dramatic play area with real materials such as metal bowls, wooden spoons, real food containers, etc. This is to introduce new textures and ways to play. So far, the kids love it! We are still in need of more materials, though, so we thought we would reach out to our awesome parents.
What we're looking for
clean soup cans
kitchen utensils (whisk, spatula, etc.)
small pots and pans
ideas for imaginary play outside the kitchen: old costumes or purses, old cell phones, keyboard, etc.
Month of the Young Child
Michigan celebrates MOYC during the month of April. We would love to have you celebrate with us! Here are some ideas:-
*See Ms. Julie to wear a purple ribbon during the month. (Purple is the color for MOYC!)
*Vote for your favorite kite during the week of April 13th. The winning classroom will earn a special snack! ( You may not vote for your own child's kite, but siblings may vote for each other!)
*Check out the April calendar posted on our birthday board each day for a new activity to do with your child! After all, we are celebrating them this month!
*April 30th is our rescheduled pajama day! Hopefully the weather will be in our favor this time :)
