February Themes:

           The week of February 5 we will be talking about feelings.  During circle time we will sing songs about feelings, such as If You’re Happy and You Know It.  We will work on building our vocabulary with the words: happy, sad, mad, angry, hungry, sleepy, tired, and sorry.  On Thursday, February 8 we will have pink day.  Don’t forget to have your child wear something pink, and find something pink for their color day bag!  The kids really enjoy showing their friends the things they find, and then talking about them.

          The week of February 12, our theme will be Valentines and Friends. We will have the mailbox set out so the students can practice delivering mail and valentines to their friends.  We will also have a writing center set up so the students can practice writing letters or drawing pictures for their friends. Our vocabulary for the week will be: heart, candy, envelope, valentines, kiss, hug, mailbox, mail carrier.  

We will be decorating paper bags to hold all of our Valentines.  On Wednesday, February 14 we will have our classroom’s Valentine’s Day party.  If your child brings in valentines we will help them place the valentines into each child’s bag.  I previously sent home a note with a list of students in the classroom, please let me know if you need another copy.  Valentine’s Day is always such a fun day!  We will also be eating a special snack on Valentine’s day, please let me know if you are interested in donating a snack for our party.

          The weeks of February 19 and 26 our theme will be community helpers.  We will be building our vocabulary with the words: bus driver, dentist, doctor, firefighter, police officer, and baker.  We will be reading about various community helpers, and talking about the jobs of our community helpers.  The students always enjoy pretending to be firefighters, teachers, mail people, etc. 

Zoo Phonics Characters

The students in the afternoon group really enjoy learning the Zoo Phonics animals.  We practice the animal’s name, it’s sound, and find names and words that have that specific letter.  The week of January 29, we learned about Nigel Night Owl, letter “N.”  The week of February 5, we are learning about Olive Octopus, letter “O.”  The week of February 12, we will learn about Pee Wee Penguin, letter “P.”  The week of February 19, we will learn Queeny Quail, letter “Q.”  And the week of February 26, we will learn Robby Rabbit, letter “R.”  The students really enjoy these activities!  I can tell that many of you are practicing the letters and sounds at home, which really helps your child.  You can play games like I spy with the letters at home, or simply ask your child to find a specific letter somewhere around the house or while you are out and about.  


As the weather gets warmer we will be going outside to play more often.  On days that the weather is nice, but the playground equipment is wet, we enjoy playing on the blacktop with bikes and cars.  Other days we enjoy playing on the playground equipment.  We have also been having fun playing with other classrooms while we are outside.  Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
