Notes from the Preschool Room

February will be another busy month in our room! In preparing for Valentine’s Day, we will be learning about different feelings and emotions. We are planning a Valentine Exchange Party on the morning of Wednesday, February 14. The children will design a Valentine craft, decorate Valentine cookies, sing Valentine songs, and of course, exchange Valentine cards. We are asking that the children bring 11 non-addressed Valentine cards to exchange the day of the party. Please have your child wear something pink or red for the party. Lastly, we will be placing a party sign-up sheet next to the parent sign-up board in our classroom next week.

We will spend the second half of February conducting a variety of exciting science experiments. The children will learn about the properties of water, cause and effect, make comparisons and predictions, and test their ideas. This will be a very fun, but messy week for our class. Please be sure to send your child to school in play-clothes during these weeks.

We will continue working through our letter of the week by singing our alphabet chant, writing our letters, searching for items that begin with our letters, and finding our letter in print. As always, please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child.

Thank you!
Mrs. O.
