This month we will be concentrating on learning home addresses, emergency phone numbers, and overall learning what to do in difficult or dangerous situations.
We also will focus on recognizing working members of our community through dramatic play, using maps and other items used by members of our community on a daily basis. You're welcome (and invited) to contribute by bringing in any old related items you might have sitting around your home, such as a broken cell phone, a calculator, or any other similar devices.
As always, please send extra clothes for outside. As the weather has been and will be getting warmer, we will begin to spend more time outdoors in the following weeks. Make sure your child has at least a warm coat, mittens or gloves, a hat, and weather appropriate shoes every day.
SPECIAL PROJECTS AND EVENTS
This month we will be having a St. Patrick Day Potluck; I will speak to you about the potluck in advance if anything is needed on your end.
We will also be continuing with our weekly VIP presentations.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, you might consider taking some time to cook some green goodies with your child. Here's an easy recipe to get you started.
Patty the Leprechaun's Amazing Applesauce
Ingredients for one:
1/2 cup applesauce
1 tsp. leprechaun dust (lime flavored gelatin/Jell-O)
The directions for this recipe are as simple as it gets, so perhaps let your child assemble the treat after you provide him/her with the necessary supplies. All it takes is to pour the applesauce into a small container, add the leprechaun dust on top, mix it in, and enjoy.
