Visit to the Music room

Dear Parents,

We had a busy week in which children continued to explore how to make different colors, building different structures and practicing their fine motor skills.  We visited the Miss Betsy’s music room and children had the opportunity to listen and interact with many musical instruments.

Healthy Snacks 

Our class has been learning about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables to keep our bodies healthy and strong. We read the book Eating the Alphabet- Fruits and Vegetables from A to Z by Lois Ehlert to provoke children’s ideas and conversations around the topic and they are collecting data about the kinds of fruits and vegetables they bring to school for snack.

This week the school sent you our healthy eating guidelines,  please familiarize yourself with them.

Next week we will read the book The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and we will focus on the use of descriptive words to talk about the characters in a book. In Math, children will continue exploring the 2D and 3D shapes and using charts to collect information.

On Wednesday, December 6th we will have a class party. Thanks for Gavin’s mom, Celia Anderson, for organizing it and everyone else for contributing. Parents are welcomed to join us at 9:30 AM.

We need your help

This is a time of the year generally associated with giving. We thank you for generous donations for FOLSCO. We are also asking your support to collect baby clothes for the children in the refugee camps.

 

Have a great weekend!

Miss Francesca and Miss Georgina

We Are Going on a Bear Hunt

Dear Parents,

We had another busy week in Prep 3.2. We read the books We are Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenburry, and Everybody Needs a Rock by Byrd Baylor. The children responded to the We are going on a Bear Hunt by engaging in drawing and role play activities.

 

 

Thanks to Jing and Celia for volunteering to read stories to Prep 3.2. If you want to volunteer to be a reader please send us an email to arrange a time.

Next week we will read the book Little Blue and Little Yellow by Leo Lionni and we will draw inspiration for our artwork from the artist Herve Tullet and his book Mix it up!

To prevent clothing from going missing we have now placed the spared clothes that were in the cubbies holes inside the children’s school bags. We remind you that is important that all belongings are labeled. Also, please remember that children need a hat to protect them from the sun when they pay outdoors.

Best wished,

Miss Georgina and Miss Francesca
