Little Angels - 1

 

I hope everyone had a restful and fun mid-winter recess! I am excited to get back to school and continue to grow and learn as we get ready for Pre-K!

Looking ahead to March...

In Religion, we will discuss Lent and how we prepare for Easter Sunday.  We will talk about and read stories about Jesus' life. We will also discuss Jesus' love for us and how he wants us to love another. The saints we will focus on this month are St. Patrick and St. Joseph. As we prepare for spring and the new life around us, we will read the Creation Story.

Some books we will read to go along with our themes include The Cat in The Hat, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Green Eggs and Ham, There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Clover,  What Makes a Rainbow, A Rainbow of My Own, Eat Lots of Colors: A Colorful Look at Healthy Nutrition for Children, and Eating The Alphabet.

March is National Nutrition Month. It is so important to start healthy habits at a young age that develop for life. Choose My Plate (https://www.choosemyplate.gov/health-and-nutrition-information) from the USDA is a great resource that provides information such as a myplate checklist and growth chart for preschoolers. In our classroom we will be discussing healthy foods to eat and how to keep our bodies healthy. To go along with our rainbow theme, we will start a rainbow food chart and mark the foods we eat in our lunch and snacks as we "eat a rainbow" of foods to stay healthy. We will also celebrate healthy habits with Superhero Day (letter will go home with more information).
 

Throughout the month of March, we will work with the color green and review color mixing.  Colors, Shapes, Numbers, and Letters are all around us! We will continue letter, name, and number recognition. We are working on letter sounds and will play letter games such as matching pictures to their beginning sounds.
