February is Flying . . .

I hope everyone had a relaxing Family Day and Winter Break!

This month has just about zoomed right by us. We have had many fun things happening during the last 2 weeks of school. We have gone skating several times at the rink, we had Jump Rope For Heart at the rink as well. The children had a fantastic day doing a variety of jump rope activities. We have a hospital now in our classroom, so the children are giving out bandages, wrapping arms in casts, using a stethoscope, as well as a variety of other objects found in a hopital. We are learning a bit about the parts of our body (arms, legs, feet, etc.) and face (mouth, eyes, etc.) and about our feelings. Today we are making a book about our feelings.

Next month, we will be learning about Dinosaurs. We are finishing up our unit on numbers up to 5 and will be moving on to Geometry and Measurement in Math. So far we have learned the letters F, Q, D, G, S, A, O, T, C, E, L, J, I, and K. Please keep the letter stories at home to practice reading with your child.
