Welcome Back to School!

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas vacation spent with family and friends!

We are back into the full swing of things again. We started learning about the letter 'e' this week and we are working on our numbers 0-5 right now. There have been many changes in our classroom. The children are sitting with different classmates at their tables. Things have moved around so that we can access the SMART board. We now do all of our circle time activities on the SMART board. The children have been learning to use it during play time also. They have taken to using the SMART board like fish to water and they all seem pretty excited to get their hands on it. I will be posting pictures soon of our classroom, but if you would like to pop in and see how the SMART board works, we do Circle Time from 8:30 to 9:15 approximately. Just let me know if you are coming, you are more than welcome to come in. Typically Play Time is right before lunch, if you want to come in and play with the SMART board with your child, just let me know in advance and you are more than welcome to come.

We will be learning about winter, the things you do in winter and snow this month. I also talked to the children about some of their interests and many of them will be covered at some point throughout the year. There was one area that I hadn't planned on covering this year, but since there seemed to be and interest in it, we will also be learning about SPACE this month instead of animals. So if you get a chance, take an opportunity to stop and look at the stars with you child.
