News From the Toddler Class – March 28, 2016

Dear Families:

As we end March and begin April, we will return to a familiar color of the week—yellow. We started our year with yellow but did not have a Rainbow Catcher adventure with it. Our shape of the month of April will be a star. We look forward to exciting adventures with our color and shape.

The weather is beautiful, and we will be going outside as often as possible. If you have given us permission to use sunscreen, please remember to provide us with a labeled bottle for your child.

With spring in full swing, we will be learning about caterpillars and butterflies. We will start an Eric Carle unit in order to learn about many different insects. Our classroom will receive caterpillars to watch as they grow and metamorphasize.

Flowers and ducks will abound as we jump into spring. We will read books such as Make Way for Ducklings, Angus and the Ducks, The Tiny Seed, and Planting a Rainbow.

It’s hard to believe that our year is almost over. That means getting ready for our end of year show. We have been practicing The Pledge of Allegiance. We are now planning our songs to sing and entertain you, as well as, walking in a line into the show. It is very exciting and we look forward to it.

Looking forward to a wonderful week,

Miss Joanne’s Nursery Weekly Newsletter 1/25/16 – 1/29/16

Dear Parents,

            Happy February!!!  Thank you to all the parents that attended Parent-Teacher conferences.  Tapping into your support enables us to teach more effectively.  I especially appreciated everyone’s patience and apologize for any inconveniences.  Keeping to a schedule can often be the most difficult part of the conference process!  Although we typically do not schedule another parent-teacher conference, I am always available to discuss progress or concerns.

            Since we were learning the letter “Nn” last week, noise was our focus and we made LOTS of it!  In case you didn’t know, your children LOVE to make noise!  While playing Pharrell Williams “Happy”, we took our musical instruments and when prompted, made noise!  Music measures the ability to follow directions and keep rhythm.  The children created a wonderfully noisy band!

Our song this week from our fabulous flip chart went like this….

Nn (to the tune The Old Gray Mare)

Nathaniel had a naughty little nanny goat,

who never ate a single oat,

just nibbled on his overcoat.

Nathaniel had a naughty little nanny goat.

Her name was Nannabelle.

            As we introduced the letter “Nn”, examples of words such as nest, Native Americans, newspaper, nose and necktie were given.  To reinforce the letter, we covered our N’s with pieces of newspaper and made nifty neckties!

            Eager to have a little sensory fun, we tried an experiment called “Guess that Smell!”  Since smelling involves your nose, the children used their sense of smell in trying to identify familiar scents.  Small containers of chocolate, pickles, bananas, bacon and “smelly” cheese were passed around one at a time.  After experiencing all the scents we tried identifying them.  The children realized how powerful their sense of smell really is!

            During our class discussions we talked about “Good Nutrition.”  The children should now know that good nutrition means healthy foods.  We used a “pyramid guide” as a visual.  The children explored the food groups and specific foods that make up these groups.  We talked about the fact that everyone needs food in order to grow strong, be healthy and have active brainpower and lots of energy!  I hope they take some of what they learned to the lunch table where they peck and poke at just about everything!

I would like to share with you another discussion that occurred this past week during afternoon snack.

Gavin  : “One day the dust bunny came and went “pinch” right on my eyebrow!”

Christian: “You know that dust bunnies are not rabbits…right?”

Gavin:(Totally ignoring his comment.) “Then one time a dust bunny came and stole my dinosaur and bit me on my ear and it was bleeding and everything, but it’s better now.”

 Christian: “But you know that dust bunnies are not really rabbits….right?”

 Christian: (Changing the subject!) “Did anybody ever eat shark meat?”

 Jacob: “Once when I was a baby I tried it and LOVED it! I like shark meat better than broccoli!”

“One of the virtues of being very young is that you don’t let the facts get in the way of your imagination!” Sam Levenson.

            Six more weeks of winter or an early spring???  On Tuesday, in anticipation of our favorite furry forecaster, Punxsutawney Phil, the nursery class will have some educational and interactive fun!  We will Phil our day with various activities that include pictures of groundhogs, stories, crafts and even shadow shapes on the wall!!

            The excitement should continue through Friday as we gear up for the biggest football game of the year…..the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos!!!!  Please have your child wear a sports jersey or team shirt that day.  In our indoor-outdoor play area we will fumble and toss some footballs.  Of course a Super Bowl party wouldn’t be complete without some football FOOD so we will have our own little tailgate party!!!  Make Super Bowl Sunday a fun family tradition!  Football isn’t just for grown-up’s you know.  Provide age-appropriate explanations so the children can enjoy it too!  They need only to understand that when Mom or Dad’s team has the ball, it’s time to cheer and jump up and down!!!

            This week we will introduce the letter “Oo”, and reinforce all of our colors, shapes and numbers.  We will begin crafting our “Valentines for Vets” and talk to the children about showing love for others.  Parents, with your help, have your child make a card or paint a picture for a veteran.  Instill patriotism early!  On a day when Americans traditionally engage in expressions of love to one another, it is a great opportunity to remind those who served that their fellow citizen’s love, support, and truly appreciate them. Please send all cards in at your earliest convenience.  We will have a mailbox set up and our Pre-K teacher, Miss Anne, will ensure their delivery to the VA hospital in Northport.

            On February 10th and 11th, we will observe Valentine’s Day in the classroom!  Since it is also Letter “Pp” week, we will invite the children to wear their pajamas to school and breakfast will be served!!!  We will celebrate Valentine, Pajama Days by eating pancakes, playing games and sharing cards.  Please have your child bring in a Valentine for every student in the class on or before February 10th.  DO NOT label these with names as it is too time consuming to sort them out.  There are 23 friends in the nursery!

Enjoy the week!

Warmly,

Miss Joanne

January 29, 2016 News Flash from Miss Lori’s Pre-K Class

Dear Pre-K Families,

            We introduced the letter “Nn” this week.  The children made a “Nancy Nurse” puppet and thought of many words that begin with the letter “Nn”.  They also practiced writing the letter “Nn”.

            This week we read a story called The Mitten Tree by Candace Christiansen.  Our class painted a large tree and then each child made a matching pair of mittens to hang on the tree.  Some children painted their mittens, some colored them, and some glued different things on their mittens.  We discussed what a “pair” of something means and that the mittens must look like each other.  We also read a book called Snip, Snip, Snow by Nancy Poydar.  Each child cut out and created their very own snowflake, which we displayed in our classroom.  The girls and boys are always so proud when they see their work all around the room!

            All of the children learned about magnets this week.  They went on a “magnet hunt” using magnets of all different shapes and sizes.  The boys and girls had a great time exploring the different things in our classroom that the magnets were attracted to.  They learned that these items contain iron.  I read the book, What Is A Magnet by Franklyn Bradley.  We then painted using magnets!  A piece of paper was placed inside of a box with a few round magnets and some different colored paint inside of the box.  Then the child held onto a strong magnet and held it under the box which then caused the round magnets to be attracted to the large magnet which then caused the round magnets to move all around the paint on the white paper!  The children thought this was absolutely amazing!  These paintings are hanging up in our classroom.

            The boys and girls completed another page in their “All About Me” book and also began a book called “Where Do Animals Go In Winter” which will come home next week.  We are discussing hibernation and migration to coincide with this unit.  We will also discuss “Ground Hog’s Day”.

            It was great to meet with many of you this week to conference about your child.  I am so pleased to witness the tremendous growth in each child.  You should be very proud of your children!

Just a few reminders:

  • February 12, Friday is our Valentine’s Day Party. Please feel free to send in a valentine for each friend in our class, as well as a treat for our party.  Please remember, no lollipops and please keep the snack “nut free”.  We will also wear pajamas to school on that day in recognition of the letter “Pp”!  Miss Sheryl will also make pancakes for us to enjoy.  What a fun day that is sure to be!
  • After the February vacation (Feb.15-Feb.19) we will celebrate the 100th day of school on Friday February 26. I will be asking your child to bring in 100 items that can fit into a one gallon Ziploc bag.  Your child will count out the items in school and we will have a party for the 100th day!  We have been talking about this special day since we began school in September!

Enjoy your weekend!

 

Warmly,

Miss Lori and Miss Kristine

 

Miss Joanne’s Nursery Newsletter 1/4/16 – 1/8/16

Dear Parents,

          2016 is off to a great start in the nursery! The bells have finished ringing, the ball has dropped and the calendar changed to a new year! The children have resumed their regular routine without any real adjustments! They are strengthening friendships and using their words to negotiate their needs and express feelings. They laugh, dance, smile and really seem to enjoy the warm environment we work hard at creating. They have also done a wonderful job of welcoming two new friends to our class, Ayden and Alexander! We are so proud of them!

          In December, our unit “Holidays we Celebrate” gave the children an opportunity to learn about Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas. To enhance the learning process and provide a vivid picture of these celebrations we made some wonderful projects. The classroom took on an air of festivity and the children were so proud of their work.

          Throughout the holiday season, the children tried hard to stay on the “nice” list in hopes that a special visitor would stop by to see them. Understandably, eyes lit up with excitement as Santa (Mr. Michael) entered the room to distribute gifts! The magic of Christmas was definitely alive at Red Robin.

          We want to send a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who donated hand-made and store bought mittens, gloves and hats for our “Mitten Tree” fundraiser! We will warm more than hearts this winter! The children were very proud and excited to hang them on our holiday tree! The donations have been distributed to those in need.

          We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Hopefully you were busy building fun memories. Thank you so much for your generosity and special gifts. It is with much appreciation that I write this. Your unique recognition, personal notes and warm wishes helped make my holidays a little brighter. Sadly my Mom passed away December 27th. She had always been a strong, active woman but over the last 8 years had been afflicted with dementia. That being said, we actually said good-bye to her awhile ago. As hard as that final separation is, it’s comforting to know that she is released from that terrible disease and is at peace now.

          So thank you again for the gifts that you gave and the gifts that your children are. Nothing in the world can cheer you up like a child can. Each one of your children is very special. Their enthusiasm, innocence and love never cease to amaze me. May your New Year be filled with peace, love and much laughter.

          The school year is rapidly moving ahead and in spite of the chill outdoors, the warmth of great learning experiences indoors is keeping us cozy and excited.

          This past week in “Circle Time” we introduced the letter “Kk.” It was explained to the children that the letter “K” makes the same sound as another letter they’ve already learned about. Ask your child what other letter makes the same sound as “K?” Examples of words such as kite, key, kangaroo and koala were given. To reinforce the letter we made rubbings of keys on our pre-cut letter “K”. We also water colored kites and let our imaginations take flight. While Disney’s “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” played in the background, we had some high flying fun and sent our kites soaring!

          Our “Circle Time” discussions taught us about kangaroo’s and koala bears. Ask your child what a “marsupial” is, and what a baby kangaroo is called (Joey).

Getting really fancy, I modeled a Japanese Kimono for the children. It not only spiced up MY wardrobe, but taught us about another culture. The playful yet elegant Kimono with its beautiful design and long flowing sleeves fascinated the children. It was explained that in some countries, a Kimono can be used as a bathrobe, housecoat or cover-up. Ryan still insisted that with the extended sleeves, I clearly looked like a bird!

          During music we kept the room humming with our kazoos! It’s a fun instrument to play and makes LOT’S of noise! (sorry!) Not everyone automatically knew what to do with their kazoo, so we had a brief kazoo seminar! Before long our little musicians were belting out familiar songs like the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.” It was silly, lively fun and a total blast!

          In addition to our kazoo music, we learned a new song from our interactive flip chart. It went like this:

“Kk”  (to the tune Rockabye Baby)

Kitten and kettle,

kite and kazoo;

key, kitchen, kingdom,

and kangaroo;

king, kid and ketchup,

koala bear….

How many K words

did you just hear?

          Bored with the usual Kellogg’s Rice Krispy Treats, Miss Anastasia decided it was time to make some changes! On Wednesday and Thursday she got really creative! She made a big batch of the sticky, marshmallow ingredients and had each child press a letter “K” shaped cookie cutter into the gooey mixture. Those yummy bites of sweetness were quite the crowd pleaser!!! The children love learning things when it involves hands-on activities and food! The best part is that they can eat everything they learn! Ellie, Christian and Olivia G. found those sweet, chewy K’s……quite addictive and tasty- in unison they were shouting for MORE!

          Since we are always trying to encourage a love of music, last week we had loads of great interactive fun with Miss Sheryl’s Karaoke machine! Our High School helpers, Jessica and Amira willingly demonstrated how it’s done! Without any coaxing, they grabbed the mike and rocked out to “Let It Go.” Naturally, after seeing how much fun THEY had, Miss Sheryl and I had to get in on the fun! All those mornings singing in the car and shower paid off because our rendition of “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” was pitch perfect! When the children saw how much fun WE were having they couldn’t wait for their turn! Even some of our shy friends seemed to really enjoy the spotlight! After each performance the audience burst into applause! There certainly was no shortage of Rock Stars in the nursery last week!!

          As you can see, our school days are never mundane. Collectively we work hard to make the classroom a colorful, high energy place filled with fun activities and children socializing. We always encourage conversation and the children love to open up and share their thoughts, dreams and concerns. The more they feel they can talk to us about the little things, the more likely they will be to open up about the bigger issues later on. When we listen to our children with the intent to discover, support and connect….magic happens and sometimes it’s hilarious! I’d like to share with you a conversation Miss Anastasia and I had with the children during snack last week.

Zia                            “I’m going to the dentist!”

Gavin                       “When I go to the dentist, I’m very brave.”

Miss Joanne         “Boys and girls…..did you know that Jacob’s Mommy is a dentist?”

Ryan                       “We don’t have any dentists in my family.”

Miss Joanne         “But Ryan, YOUR Mommy is a lawyer and that’s another really important job.”

Miss Joanne         “Ryan, is your Daddy a lawyer too?”

Ryan                       “No, Daddy is the boss!”

Here’s to the heart warming and funny business of learning!!     

          On January 18th, we will be celebrating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The life of this American hero offers many teaching opportunities. In honor of Dr. King we are reading books and discussing his dream. We are also making some marvelous mobiles that focus on peace, hope and love. During “Circle Time” we will conduct an experiment. We will examine two eggs, one white and the other brown. The children will be asked if they think the eggs are the same or different on the inside. We will share their answers in next week’s newsletter!

          We wrapped up letter “Kk” by blowing plenty of kisses! This week we will focus on the letter “Ll.” Any lion tamers out there???  Our color will change to “black”. In math we will learn the number “nine” and the “diamond” shape.

          Your children continue to flourish and progress right before our eyes. Thank you for letting us be part of your child’s amazing journey. Always encourage them to do their best and praise them for doing what they do. I’ll leave off with a quote I read at Magical Childhood.com:

“If they want to paint the sky orange and give cats six legs, so be it. A four year old should know how to laugh, act silly, be goofy and use their imagination. They should know that they are loved wholly and unconditionally, all of the time. If they could care less about learning their letters or numbers, it’s OK. They will learn them accidentally soon enough. Let them immerse themselves instead in rocket ships, drawing, dinosaurs or playing in the mud. All they need to know at four years old is that the world is magical and so are they. They should know that it is just as worthy to spend the day outside making daisy chains, mud pies and fairy houses as it is to practice phonics. Scratch that – way more worthy. Every child learns to walk, talk, read and do algebra at his/her own pace. It will have no bearing on how well he walks, talks, reads or does algebra. Being the smartest or most accomplished kid in class has never had any bearing on being the happiest. We are so caught up trying to give our children “advantages” that we’re giving them lives as multi-tasked and stressful as our own! One of the biggest advantages we can give our children is a simple, carefree childhood. What does a four year old need? Much less than we realize and much more”.

Enjoy the week!

Warmly,

Miss Joanne

NEWS FLASH FROM MISS LORI’S PRE-K CLASS – JANUARY 8, 2016

Dear Pre-K Families,

We welcome back all of your children from our winter break.  We hope all of our families enjoyed their holiday time together!  Your children were so excited to tell us how their parents enjoyed the holiday gift the children gave all of you!  All of the boys and girls were so excited to see each other.  They were telling each other that the month is January and the New Year is 2016!  Each of your children shared some of their special thoughts from their winter vacation at home with their families.

We are back into the swing of things here at Red Robin.  Winter has finally made its arrival!  We began discussing winter and how animals live in the cold months.  We used the smart board to learn about penguins.  The penguins were so adorable when we saw the babies hatch.  The children were pretending to be penguins and took turns waddling around the classroom.  We read a story about an adorable penguin Cuddly Dudley by Jez Alborough.  We also used the smart board to learn about the changes in climate from one season to the next.  The girls and boys saw what happens to water (a liquid) when it is poured, and how it flows and changes its shape.  They also saw what happens when water freezes (a solid) and how all solids keep their shape.  We discussed that the temperature needs to be below 32 degrees Fahrenheit in order for water to freeze.  Our class made an ice skating pond for our door and made their own penguins on ice skates to decorate the pond!  The children love seeing their work displayed on our door!  To go along with this unit, we read Lets Find Out, weekly reader.  We learned about how some countries use ice to build with!  None of the children could imagine living in a building made out of ice!!!

We introduced the letter “Kk” this week.  We thought of many words that begin with the letter “Kk” and realized that two of our friends begin with the letter of the week-Kamran and Miss Kristine!  Each child made a “Kooky Kookaburra” puppet and practiced writing the upper and lower case “Kk”.

We made our winter tree this week for our “Seasons Tree” project that will come home in June.  We decorated the tree with snow paint and glitter!  We also read the book called Snowballs, by Lois Ehlert.  Each of the girls and boys made their own snow person.  Some children made a “snow mommy”, a “snow dog” or themselves as a snow person.  We are all enjoying being back together here at Red Robin.  We have been very busy having fun and getting smart at the same time!

Enjoy your weekend

Warmly,

 

Miss Lori and Miss Kristine

 

MISS ANNE’S HOLIDAY NEWSLETTER – DECEMBER 2015

Dear Parents,

       It is so hard to believe that the holidays are upon us! We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Our Thanksgiving Feast was a terrific experience for the children. The food you sent in filled their plates and was delicious! Thank you so much for all the effort you put into making our Feast so special.

       Our Food Drive was also a big success.  It was a valuable learning experience to “share” our food with the needy.  Thank you for your support.

        During December we will continue with our alphabet puppets, and review letters Hh, Ii and Jj. The children really enjoy making their puppets each week. They put a lot of effort into them. Their fine motor skills are improving more and more each day. 

       There are plenty of topics for discussion this month. Winter and hibernation, as well as holiday traditions, are just a few of the topics we will cover. If you have any special holiday traditions that you would like to share with our class please call and schedule a time to do so.

       Our Hanukkah Party will be on Monday, December 7th. Our Christmas Party will be on Monday, December 21st. If you would like to send in a treat for our parties please feel free to do so.  Please remember we are a nut-free environment.  Any goodies sent in must be packaged with labels stating that there are no nuts in it and the facility where the product was made is also nut-free.

      Our holidays would not be complete without a visit to the Arbors, an assisted living facility, where we visit the elderly and sing our holiday songs.  The smiles on the faces of our elderly friends are priceless and to me the true meaning of this wonderful time of year is so obvious at this visit!  We will be going on this class trip on Wednesday morning, December 16th.  If your child does not attend school on Wednesday mornings please call to make arrangements to attend this very special trip.

     As you can see, we have a very busy month ahead of us.  We would like to wish you a very Happy Hanukkah, a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with peace and joy!

NOVEMBER 30TH NEWSLETTER FROM MISS LOUISE’S ROOM

November 30, 2015

Dear Families:

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thank you for your generosity for our Thanksgiving feasts. The children enjoyed tasting everything! As December begins, we look towards the many holidays celebrated by our families: Chanukah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa. We will be reading books and creating art projects related to each of them. The children learn about the many similarities that they share: family get togethers, delicious foods, lights and candles, etc. With Chanukah starting December 6th, we will concentrate on Chanukah first. Please fill out the attached holiday celebration sheet as soon as possible.

Our color of the month is blue, and the shape of the month is a rectangle. Our classroom will become a winter wonderland decorated with igloos, snowmen, and penguins. The children will learn about winter animals and their behaviors. We will learn that some animals stay awake during the winter, while others hibernate. Our theme will continue through January.

         As long as the weather remains above freezing, we will be going outside. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather, and label all of their outerwear. When the weather is uncooperative; we will play indoors and sing, dance, and move to our various musical selections. We’ve developed a lot of favorite songs to sing and dance to.

Looking forward to another great week

Miss Louise, Miss Enedina, Miss Jade & Mr. Joe

NEWS FLASH FROM MISS LORI’S CLASS NOVEMBER 13, 2015

November 13, 2015 News Flash from Miss Lori’s Pre-K Class

Dear Pre-K Families,

The upper and lower case “Ee” was introduced this week.  We discussed the sound the letter makes and discussed that the letter “Ee” is a vowel.  The children know a vowel makes two sounds, the long “e” and the short “e” and that the long “e” says its name.  In addition, each child made an “Ellie the Elephant” puppet and wrote the upper and lower case “Ee”.

We took a beautiful nature walk this week while we enjoyed the gorgeous weather!  The boys and girls collected different colored leaves, acorns, pinecones, twigs, and pine needles.  I read a book called Leaf Man by Lois Ehlert.  The book shows how blowing leaves and fall items can look like all different things when put together.  Some pictures the children found were a chicken, a turtle, a bird, and a duck.  Your children thought about what they wanted to create using the items they collected during our walk.  Some ideas were a flamingo, a duck, a butterfly, a cat, themselves, a Mommy, a cow, and a flower!  Their work of art is hanging up in our classroom for all to see!

We discussed “opposites” this week.  I had a puzzle containing many opposites and the class had to figure out which picture was the correct opposite to each picture.  The girls and boys were laughing so hard when I had them “perform” opposites such as “front, back, stand, sit, happy, sad, laugh, cry, left, right, awake, and sleep”.  Ask your children about this!  Together we made our “Class Book of Opposites.”  Children chose an “opposite” to illustrate for their page in our book.  They had a great time doing this and had a lot of fun taking turns reading the book!

Lastly, we made a “Very Important Information” book for each child containing their address, phone number, and first and last name.  This is something I will go over with them during circle time regularly in order for your children to know this very important information!

Next week please send your child to school with a paper towel roll and a pinecone for a special project we will be making for Thanksgiving.  Please remember no school for your children on Wednesday, in honor of Veteran’s Day.

Enjoy your weekend!

 

Warmly,

 

Miss Lori and Miss Kristine
