To Our Families of the 3 to 5 year olds,
We are off to a fun start. So far we have discovered the letter D, used math manipulative to count out numbers, established our helper jobs, and talked about friendship and fall, as well as other activities. The class is really starting to meld together and establish relationships.
This month we are going to be learning about fire safety and emergency, think more about fall, structure of books and making our own book. I will be setting up a grocery store at the end of the month and we will investigate the different jobs in the store.
Our first fieldtrip for the year. We will be going to the greenwood library on the city bus. The Seattle Fire Department will be holding a story time, read by firefighters. They will see the fire trucks up close and all the equipment. The firefighters will be having small lessons on fire safety. Please be sure to dress your child for the weather on that day. We will need at least one parent volunteer for this trip so if you would like to join us please let us know. Field trip forms will be coming home on Friday.
We are starting a formal show and tell day for each of the kids to bring in something special or tell us about something they are excited about. Please help your child to prepare for their day with either an item or a reminder of something you did over the weekend or the day before. We will do sharing at closing circle time. Friday they will get their assigned day and we will start it on Monday.
We have been enjoying working with your children and look forward to the events of this year.
