WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH?
Mrs. G. & Mrs. Obaker
It is hard to believe that the winter holidays are already here. Wow, what a busy month we have planned. We will start the month making holiday gifts and talking about Hanukkah. We will make a menorah by painting our hands. We are going to get messy making potato latkes. They are delicious! We will also talk about Christmas as we make Christmas trees, holiday gifts and sing about Rudolph. It would not be the holiday season without making Christmas cookies.
This month will be filled with wonderful holiday books, music and crafts! Winter is fast approaching and so is the cold weather. Please send in hats and mittens with your son or daughter since we will still be going to the playground to play.
Mrs. Brown & Mrs. Musci
It’s so hard to believe that we’re rounding out the end of the calendar year! This month, we’ll be celebrating December holidays. The students will start by learning about Hanukkah traditions: making their own menorah, playing (and making art!) with the dreidel, and cooking homemade applesauce, the perfect pair for latkes. As we move on to the next part of the unit, we’ll learn more about gingerbread, reindeer, and evergreen trees. Science will come to life with hands-on “dissolving presents” and melting peppermints. On Friday, December 15, we’ll celebrate with a hot chocolate and pajamas party! If your child wants to, please feel free to send them to school in their jammies that day. Don’t forget to look for other updates in the ClassTag app. Mrs. Brown and Mrs. Joyce wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season as we ring in the new year!
Mrs. Bosher & Mrs. Pawlak
How can it possibly be December?! Mrs. Bosher is so excited to celebrate the holidays with your children. It is going to be a fantastic month. We will begin by reading the story of Hanukkah. We will read Sammy Spiders First Hanukkah and Ester’s Hanukkah Disaster. We will make candles for the Menorah, spin dreidels and end the week with potato latkes. Yum!
The rest of the month will be spent discussing Christmas and other fun winter activities. We will read Bear Stays Up for Christmas, Santa Duck, The Naughtiest Reindeer, and other holiday favorites. There will be art, sensory activities, experiments, reindeer food and even a pajama day on Friday, December 15th Happy holidays from Mrs. Bosher & Mrs. Pawlak!
Mrs. Howe & Mrs. Powell
It was wonderful talking with all of you during our conferences. I could talk about your kids all day long! It is December – can you believe it!? This month we will learn about Hanukkah and Christmas. We will paint with dreidels and make our own menorahs. Your kids will also be making a very special gift to bring home for the holidays!
Between today and when we return to school after the holidays, registration will be open for your child who is already enrolled in Dulaney Day Preschool. The Registration Form is linked here for the 2024-2025 school year. Please feel free to share the registration info with friends!
This is a time of love and family and friends and of course, good cheer. The entire staff of Dulaney Day Preschool wishes you a happy, and more importantly, healthy holiday season and New Year. As we work with your children each day, we are reminded of what makes the holidays so special, including love, giving and gratitude!
