This month we will be focusing on two themes: "All About Me" and "Families". Some of our objectives this month include:
- responding to one's own name
- identifying our friends
- responding to and identifying pictures and photographs
We will learn all about these things through various activities, such as counting how many of our friends are in class every day (math), exploring mirrors to see our reflections (science), looking at pictures of families (social), fingerprinting (art), and reading books about families (literacy).
Some of our friends will be moving up to the next room in the beginning of September. During this time we will be sending all of your child's belongings home. Please send in a fresh change of bedding and weather appropriate clothing for their new classroom. Don't forget to check sizes and make sure it will fit – some of our supplies are different from one classroom to the next! Thank you!
As we learn about out families, I am asking that you and your child put together an "All About Me" poster board. You can include lots of pictures of your child, family and pets. Also throw in any stickers, fun facts about your child, etc., that you would like to include! We will be displaying them around our room for all the children to look at. Please bring in your poster by Monday September 15.
