“February is the month of love…” this is the start of the song we sing during our calendar time each day. We will be sharing a lot of love with each other this month. Our letters between now and Spring Break will be Qq, and Rr, Oo and Pp. During Oo week we will be spending our time learning to love the ocean and many species of animal life that exists there. Be sure to look for our Ocean Mural outside the classroom. We will be showing love by sharing valentines with each other at our Valentine Party on February 14th. Also for Letter Pp, we will be wearing our pajamas to school and eating pancakes—which most of us love!!! With letter Qq we will make heart crowns and hear the story of the Queen of Hearts and we will be making a friendship quilt to display outside our classroom. Finally, for Letter Rr (before Spring Break), we will be celebrating Rodeo Day and wear our western clothes and playing rodeo games.

Throughout all of this we will continue to further develop our fine-motor skills. Math and science will be part of each day’s curriculum. Of course, we will work on getting along with each other and resolving our conflicts. Besides Valentine Parties and Pajama Day, Ms. Twyla will come with her red wagon and Happy Bear will come to share with us about personal safety.

I hope all of you will come to the PECC “Carnival of Care” on Friday, February 24th, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. This will be a chance to have a lot of family fun and share with our PECC families who have been directly impacted by cancer.

Thank you for all your support and encouragement. Teaching Preschool at PECC continues to be a great joy in my life.

Happy February Birthday to Josie Kosmicki, Charlie Krempec and Molly Menking.
Happy March Birthday to Jewell Deddens.

Happy February! It’s been wonderful reconnecting after the holidays and the children are really enjoying playing with their buddies. It’s a privilege to watch their growth and development. We’ve been continuing our letter journey and will focus on the letters O, P and Q this month. The children are having fun recognizing their last names and the last names of their peers. Thanks for reinforcing this at home.

We continue to practice fine and gross motor skills and the children are getting quite good at doing things for themselves.

On February 23rd we will enjoy Pajama Day. The children may wear their pajamas to class and we will make pancakes for snack with Ms. Becky’s class. This is always a fun and memorable day for the kiddos.

Enjoy the time with your children. It’s such a blessing to be with them each Tuesday and Thursday! I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
