Our Penguin Project has taken off and we are learning so much! Did you know there are 17 different kinds of penguins? We will continue with our study next week. The books we will be reading will include:
“National Geographic Kids; Penguins!” by Anne Schreiber
“Little Penguin” by Patrick Benson
“Antarctica” by Helen Cowcher
“The Emperor’s Egg” by Martin Jenkins and Jane Chapman
“Eyes on Nature; Penguins” by Jane P. Resnick
Clue Bags have started. We respectfully ask that your child uses the Clue Bag to bring in toys from home to share. Other than that, the only toys that should be coming to school are lovies for rest time.
Our cubby room is SO full! With all the winter gear, please do your part to keep things tidy by emptying your child’s cubby each day.
Admissions Open House! Is your child transitioning to Kindergarten? Come in for a visit this Sunday, from noon till 2:00 p.m. You’ll be home in time for the game!
Annual Preschool Parent Dinner/PJ and Movie Night! On Wednesday, January 31st, you are invited to come and share in a pot luck dinner with the grown-ups while your child enjoys pizza and a movie in their PJs in the preschool! Siblings are welcome! There will be a sign up sheet on the parent board for dinner items and pizza. Considering what we’ve been studying, we are thinking that maybe “Happy Feet” might be the right movie?
Benchmarks are on their way home. Please sign them and return them to school at your earliest convenience.
Our Virtuoso schedule next week is:
Tuesday: Science with Mr. Wyzga and Spanish with Senora
Wednesday: Music with Ms. Emily
Thursday: P.E. with Mrs. Wood (don’t forget your sneakers)
Friday: Library with Mrs. Silva (please don’t forget your library books)
