Even though it remains quite cold outside, we have observed some of our children in the morning class packing their bags to go to the beach during dramatic play time. So, following their lead, we had a group meeting & spoke about planning a beach party. The children had much to say & are very excited about this activity. Candice took notes for us as we discussed what we need for our party. Stay tuned. We first need to prepare our classroom, then we will announce the date for our beach party event.
Happy 5th Birthday to Gabby. We celebrated Gabby's birthday on Thursday morning. Gabby chose to read Ladybug's Birthday by Steve Metzger. Thank you to Gabby's family for sending in yummy pink cupcakes for us.

The Week of the Young Child (WOYC) is an annual celebration sponsored by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This year it takes place Apri1 10-16. The purpose of the WOYC is to focus public attention on the needs of young children & their families & recognize the early childhood programs & services that meet those needs at the local, state, & federal levels. The WOYC is a time to plan how we - as citizens of a community, state, & nation - will better meet the needs of all young children & their families. We are planning some fun school events for that week so stay tuned for more info.
Reminder: Scholastic book orders are due 3/4/16.
Have a great weekend!
