Spring is in the air. . . I can just feel it!!  J

We are going to kick off the month of March with “Literacy week”.  We will be reading Laura Numeroff’s,  “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”, Eric Carle’s, “The Mixed Up Chameleon”, as well as “Curious George and the Puppies”, “Pete the Cat and the Magic Sunglasses”, and “Little Pigeon Finds a Hot Dog”.  There will be lots of fun activities planned to go along with these stories.

The week of March 11th, we will be doing some St. Patrick’s Day activities.  (Maybe even a Leprechaun will visit our room!)  There is a Pizza Fun Lunch planned for Tuesday, March 12thWe are planning to have all green sides:  Peas, Honey Dew Melon and a Shamrock cookie.  If you would like your child to participate, please bring in $1.00 by Monday, March 11th.

The week of March 18th is our “Fairy Tale” week.  On Monday the 18th we will tell the tale of “Henny Penny”.  A visit to Mr. Nelson’s Wildlife Safari is planned for our class from 10:00 – 10:30.  The kids enjoy this presentation tremendously!  The other Fairy Tales for the week will be “The Three Little Pigs”, “Little Red Hen”, “Three Billy Goats Gruff” and “Goldilocks and The Three Bears”.

The last week of March we will be telling Nursery Rhymes and doing activities in the different Childcare rooms.  Approximately 40 minutes will be spent telling a Nursery Rhyme, doing an activity and then spending some time exploring this new room and the materials available to the children.   Monday will be “Hickory Dickory Dock” in the Tiger room, Tuesday our class will be going into the Frog room for a Nursery Rhyme and activity, Wednesday we will be going into the Owl room for “Humpty Dumpty”, Thursday is the Busy Bee Room with “Itsy Bitsy Spider” and Friday will be “Baa Baa Black Sheep” in the Zebra room.
