Topic of the Week:

Women in History

 

This week we have been learning all

about women in our lives and why they are

so special.

 

At group time, the children enjoyed

looking at pictures of their teachers,

mothers, sisters and peers. As we looked

at the pictures we talked about why these

people are so important. Each child at

group time held a picture of a special

woman that changed the world.

 

Some of our favorite art and sensory

activities this week were painting with

gorillas and multicultural people in

oats. The children learned about full and

empty while filling and dumping small

containers. We also practiced identifying

colors as we looked at our multicultural

peoples clothing. We look forward to

continuing exploring colors with our

Rainbow Unit next week.

 

Tip of the Week:

Parent Power

 

There are many ways you can support

your child’s learning and school. Here

are some ideas:

 

*Contact your child’s teacher immediately

if you see a problem. Working together

will help your child succeed.

 

*Attend conferences, parent meetings, and

school events regularly.

 

*Take advantage of parent involvement

opportunities within the classroom.

 

*Stay up to date on what your child is

learning at school. Explore something new

with your child outside of school related

to the topic.

 

*Have fun learning with your child!
