Mon/Wed/Fri News Greetings Playschool Parents! Happy March! This month our themes will be Community Helpers and Easter (with a St. Patrick’s Day party thrown in for fun!). Our first theme will be Community Helpers. We will have fun exploring a variety of careers – dentists, fire fighters, police officers….even the classroom will undergo some transformations to support all the learning that will go on. We will have a “career day” on March 10th . Please have your child dress up in a career they would like to do when they grow up. It is so amazing to watch these precious children dream about their futures! We will have a couple fun holiday celebrations to guide our learning in March. On March 17th , we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Please dress your child in Green this day. Then we will have fun getting ready for Easter! Chicks, Bunnies, Eggs….such a great theme. On Friday, March 26th , we will have an Easter Party and Easter Egg Hunt. Please pack a fun snack for your kiddos this day (and kudos to you, parents, for your effort for putting together such amazing snacks for party days – you are incredible!). I just wanted to let you know about our literacy activities and physical activities. We are doing our best to learn our letters and print our names. Some days, we just have so much to do, we can not seem to get it all in. I usually have a little sheet for the kids to work on. If we do not get to it, I will send it home. If you can work on this with them, that would be great. I have told the kids that it is their “homework.” Of course, please do not feel pressure to complete this activity. As we prepare for kindergarten, the more the children can identify their letters, the more prepared they will be. Also, I will be sending home some activities to help them with writing their names. Some can already write their names, and some still need help – do not worry….there is still lots of time for them to acquire this skill (some just love practicing writing and others would rather do their learning by building blocks or acting out a story!). Also, at this time, the gym is still closed to us due to Covid. However, I know how important physical activity is, so I make sure we do some everyday. Sometimes this will be outside and sometimes it will be some movement and music activities in the classroom. These amazing kids have been so flexible – you should be very proud! And I just wanted to thank-you so much for all of your participation in the Heartfelt helpers activity. The children are so proud of their accomplishments! I hope it was fun to see them hard at work being good helpers! I just love these kids so much – all 18 of them!

Wow, what a fun month of Dinosaurs, Valentines and a birthday! I am so excited for another month of exploration, learning and play. This month we will be diving into community helpers (so keep a watch out for those helpers around the neighbourhood), St Patrick’s Day and Easter. We will be exploring colors through art and science. We will be working on recognizing and writing our names. You may notice our crafts are not “perfect” – I am really wanting the students to do as much of the work as they can on their own, so they get the most benefit from our crafts and projects. We have moved from a class of 6 to a class of 9! It is wonderful that we are gaining new friends and the students are adjusting like pros. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions at the school we are currently not able to access the gym. I will have the students moving as much as we can in the class, but I would also like to take them outside. March is tricky with the weather, but it will likely be better than February, so I have marked a few dates on the calendar for outside time. However, if we get good weather, I will take them outside anytime I can. I will put a sign on the door for pick up if we are at the park. Please check in with me before taking your child. Lastly, I would love to get to know all the families over the next 4 months. You are all so important to the students and to the school community. Please feel free to ask me any questions through email, phone or in person after class.
