Dear Parents, January 2017
Welcome! Thank you
for sharing your children with us. It is
going to be a wonderful class in Room 3, at Jackson Early Childhood Center, where
we have fun while learning through play.
We are excited to be here and are looking forward to getting to know your
child and helping them get comfortable with the routines of the classroom.
Each month I will be posting a newsletter and calendar in
the hall and on my school website. Go to
and look under the teacher website link.
This will help keep you informed about activities in the classroom and let
you know about upcoming events.
Our daily schedule is flexible but usually contains the
Arrival 9:15 am / Table Top
Activities – activities are available for the children as they enter
classroom before group time begins (about 5-10 minutes)
Group Time – good morning song, attendance, calendar,
weather, introduce theme /center choices
Self-directed / Teacher-directed Activities –
children choose activities from centers around
room, including the teacher-directed activity of the day
Special Activities – we will have the opportunity each
week to go to the gym or gross motor
room, or outside (weather permitting)
Closing Group Time – books, stories, songs, finger
plays, prepare for home, goodbye song
5 Minute Talk 11:10 am (the last 5 minutes of the
day) - parents are invited into the room to
listen as we share what we did during the day (dismissal at 11:15 am)
I am available everyday before and after class to answer any
questions or concerns you may have concerning our class. I would also be happy to call you at home
after school if needed. You can also
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call
the office at 734-744-2813 to leave a message for me on my voicemail (box 73230).
It’s going to be a great Discovery for 3’s class and we look
forward to meeting you and your child!
