Welcome all to the 2014-15 Fish Room!
We are all so excited towelcome our new friends, friends who have moved up from the Frog 2 and friends who have just started Simon Says!
We had such a great start to our school year. These first few weeks we’ve been focusing on getting settle in our classroom routines. Our main priority is potty training so we’ve been visiting the potty quit frequently, and going over (and over and over) bathroom etiquette, (no playing, how to wipe, how to wash hands etc.)
We start our academic day with Circle Time, so we are adjusting to sitting, controlling our bodies, counting and learning how to spell our names. It’s a slow progression but we are getting there!
Our themes these last two weeks included, “Getting to Know You” and “Colors and Shapes.” Please visit our silhouette Gallery in our hallway, help your kiddo play the “Guess Who” game! We talked quite a bit about folder games. We are also working on raising our hands at the table and asking to be excused from the table. We are learning lots! Our “Special Friend” aka “Grandparent Breakfast” is Friday, September 5th 8:30-10:00 in the Lower Church Hall. We will also be having our Parent Orientation meeting Thursday, September 11th at 7:00. This meeting is intended for parents only please.
A couple of other notes: please make sure that your child has ample clothing in their cubby. These little guys are still learning and accidents happen! Two extra outfits would be great (including socks) Hair bows, clips and ponytails-we try to grab them is we see them playing with them or if they are on the floor but we can’t possibly keep track of what belongs to who…Wear with caution.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to pull one of us aside or call 314-842-3848 ext. 304
Until next month!
Mrs. Amanda Moran, Mrs. Erin Varvaro, & Miss Melissa Egan
The year has started off wonderful and we are already learning so much! We started off by talking about our friends and teachers and getting to know everyone. We built with BIG blocks, played at the work station, and played with cars in the garage. We drew pictures of ourselves, made chain families, and did tracings of our bodies in the art area. We loved playing in the sensory table with our animal families in pine shavings. We were able to use able to use our imagination in dramatic play while we played school, dressed up and even had a beauty parlor. It was such a blast playing with all our friends old and new!
The last week of August was about colors, shapes and patterns. We reviewed our colors, did a lot of fun color patterns, and even made a favorite color graph during group time. In the BIG block area we did colorful foam blocks, colored brick blocks, hopscotch, and cup stacking! It was so cool to build the cups really high and then knock them down and start over again. We also introduced handwriting without tears program and learned how to make and write the letter C. Please remember to check our art folders daily to see the different things we make and do! We couldn’t be more proud of ourselves at all the awesome things we accomplish!
We would like to Welcome our new friends; Suzannah, Finn and Luke! Wear are all very happy you are here!
Don’t forget Show-n-Share is on Wednesdays and ALWAYS wear tennis shoes to school everyday!
Trivia Night is coming up…Saturday, November 15th. GET A TABLE!!!
