WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH
We are moving into spring in our classroom even though it does not feel like it with this snow!
We will begin the month by bringing in March like a lion and hope that it goes out like a lamb. Using our fingers, we will paint a lamb’s wool and using a fork, we will paint a lion’s mane. Then we will use marshmallow and Chinese noodles to create wool and manes for cupcakes. We won’t forget St. Patrick’s Day as we make shamrocks by marble painting. In preparation for spring, we will make kites and umbrellas. We will end the month by making sunflowers and forsythia. Hopefully, the sight of the 2s’ flowers will bring warmer weather!
As always, thank you for sharing your amazing children with us!
We can’t believe March is here already. We’ve been having so much fun learning about Community Helpers and all of the fun jobs that they do! Our first week of March will be spent wrapping up the unit and putting our own spin on Career Day. Please send your child to school on Friday, March 8th, dressed in a way that represents something they would like to be when they grow-up. The possibilities are endless!
We’ll regroup during our short week with a unit on all things green and lucky. The following week brings the first day of spring. we will spend 3 weeks talking about the signs of spring and starting a unit on plants. Your children will learn about the parts of a plant and the life cycle of plants. They will also learn about what plants need to grow. The class will get to practice delayed gratification while we wait for our own plants to grow. So exciting!
March will be a fun and busy month for Mrs. Pullias’ class. We will begin by using our counting circles to count down to the first day of spring! We will then introduce our unit on The Dentist and Dental Health. We will even conduct an experiment to prove why it is important to brush our teeth! Later in the month, we will begin our Transportation unit. This is always a favorite, especially on Vehicle Show and Tell Day! Our Amazing Alphabet Adventure will continue with the letters P, Q, R and S. Don’t forget Conference Day on Friday, March 15th. We can’t wait to meet with you and tell you how wonderful your children are and what a year we are having! Of course, we will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with shamrocks and rainbows and a wee bit of leprechaun magic. Happy spring everyone – we hope you have as much fun as we do this month!
In Extended Day we will discuss everything, “green”, “green”, “green”. We will start with St. Patrick’s Day and then move right into spring. I know most of you realize that ‘ART’ is a passion of mine and I have had such a wonderful time sharing it with your children…marble art, sewing, cutting and pasting and cooking. For those who feel the 3 hour afternoon is still too much and your little one still naps, the JUST LUNCH BUNCH, from 12 noon until 1:00 p.m. has been great!
We are still taking registration for DULANEY DAY EXTENDED (Camp) which will run from Tuesday, May 28th until Friday, June 14th. It is such a nice way to spend the first three weeks of the summertime. It is especially convenient for those children who have older siblings in school as the program runs until the county schools are finished for the summer. If you need a registration form, it can be downloaded from our website or you can just ask me for one!
Don’t forget to go on Sign up Genius and sign up for a PARENT/TEACHER conference on Friday, March 15th. School will be closed the day of the conference. If you want to schedule one before or after school on another day, just email me.
Our SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR will run from Monday, March 11th through Friday, March 15th. March 13th will be GRANDPARENTS DAY at the Fair and I am never sure who enjoys that day most…the children or the grandparents!
