First and foremost I wanted to extend a great BIG thank you for all of the wonderful donations of prizes for our honeypot! The kids get so excited when new items are added as incentives to keep on the right behavior track. They are doing wonderful with PBIS. We have extended our honeypot reward to obtaining 10 gold tickets. Desirable classroom behavior is becoming second nature now so the children don’t “expect” the rewards anymore. This is the result we want to achieve with PBIS.
The first full week of March we will be telling many “Fairy Tales” to the children. Specific fairy tales will be “The Three Little Pigs”, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears”, “The Little Red Hen”, “Chicken Little”, and “There Was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly”. Activities will be focused on these tales.
The week of the 13th will be our “Luck of the Irish” week. Many St. Patrick’s Day activities will be coming home and also will be posted in and around our room. On Friday, March 17th, we will be doing childcare room to room St. Patrick’s Day activities. We would also like to have a Pizza Fun Lunch on this special day. If you would like your child to participate in our pizza lunch on Friday, please bring $2.00 to school by Wednesday, March 15th.
Mr. Nelson will be coming to Jackson, bringing his exotic safari animals the week of the 20th . Our date to see Mr. Nelson will be Tuesday, March 21st , from 9:00-9:45 a.m. If this is not a day normally scheduled for your child and you would like them to attend this assembly, you are more than welcome to come with your child. To keep with this theme, we will be learning about different safari animals throughout the week. Clifford will be dropping into our classroom for a quick visit with the children on the morning of Monday the 20th.
The last week of March will be a literacy week: “Spring into Reading”. Childcare will be going into a different room every day to listen to a spring story.
Please look for 2017/2018 contracts being distributed at the end of the month.
Have a great month! Hopefully March will go out like a lamb. . .
