Our next theme is going to be growing and changing! We thought what a better way to talk about how we grow and change was to make our dramatic play center into a birthday party center!
The children will write invitations, make balloons and cupcakes, create games, and presents!
What we are asking you, if you have any old party supplies that you would be willing to donate to us, we would greatly appreciate it!
We are looking for:
decorations, hats, napkins, cups, plates, banners, balloons, gift bags, present boxes, wrapping paper, candles, streamers, etc!
Thank you in advance!
Our dramatic play is currently an auto shop!
The children have different roles, a mechanic, receptionist, and a customer.
We talked for a while about what mechanics do and we even watched some Youtube videos!
They make appointments, fill out sheets about what is wrong with their car, and the mechanic fills out an repair report about what they did.
They repair the car using tools, oil, fluids, funnels, etc.
They really loved this center and they helped a lot this time with putting it all together and writing signs and everything!
So proud of them!
Just dropping in to let you know of what is going on in our classroom and school over the next two weeks before break!
Our letter of the week this week is Rr, and next week it will be Ee.
Please continue to practice your letters at home, as we have been working super hard in the classroom! I am so proud of these guys!
Next week Wednesday, there is no school, and Friday is our last day before Easter break!
With the weather warming up, please remember sneakers are the best, especially when it gets nice enough to go out on the playground!
Also if your child is sick, please make sure to send them in an excuse of absence.
Thank you so much for all you do to help make our classroom as wonderful as it is!
We celebrated the first day of Spring last week! We chatted all about Spring and the changes we would soon start to notice! We have also been counting and tallying the number of lion and lamb days we have had this March!
