PDO II Newsletter

Everything is in full swing in our classroom after the holidays!

We welcomed winter by decorating the room and hallway with mittens, painting with snowflake cookie cutters, and painting snowmen with shaving cream. The children enjoyed listening to winter books like “One Mitten,” “Bear Snores On,” and “Hello, Snow.” During music time, we enjoyed dancing to “Animal Action,” “The Freeze Dance,” and “Goldfish.” The children are gaining so much confidence and are really enjoying showing off their dance moves.

Our letters of the week in January were Kk, Ll, and Mm. We glued jewels on a king’s crown for letter Kk, dot painted ladybugs and lions for letter Ll, and painted mittens for letter Mm.

February is full of fun! This month is Children’s Dental Health Month and we will celebrate by reading books and singing songs that teach the importance of good oral health. We will also celebrate Valentine’s Day this month by creating Valentine crafts and learning a new song called “Valentine Colors.” We will be introducing fun games for the children to play in small groups to promote taking turns.

Our letters of the month are Nn, Oo, Pp, and Qq.

Our Valentine’s Day Parties will take place Thursday, the 11th, and Friday, the 12th. Please check the bulletin board to sign up for treats. Your child is welcome to bring Valentines to share with their classmates.

Happy February Birthdays to Josie, Molly and Charlie K. Congratulations to Graham on the birth of his baby sister Caroline!

As always, thank you for sharing your precious children with us. We love getting to know each one of them and watching them as they learn and grow!
