February in the 2's is all about hearts! We will be making and sending hearts to injured veterans that are in the hospital. The children will be baking delicious brownie hearts and making special cards for our Valentine's Day party! During circle time, we will be reading Goldilocks and the Three Bears. At the end of the month, we will start our color segment. Each week the children will make crafts, have discussions, and wear clothes related to the special color of the week.
3 Year Old Class:
February is going to be a busy month for the 3's. We are finishing up with polar animals and are entering into the exciting world of dinosaurs and learning about extinction. Groundhog's Day, Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day and President's Day will all be discussed during this month. Our classroom will be decorated with crafts to celebrate and display the children's creativity in interpreting these special holidays. We will be making and sending special valentines to troops overseas. Progress reports were distributed at the end of January.
February in the 4's begins with Groundhog Day! We will read a story and learn about groundhogs. A groundhog craft will go home. Valentine's Day will have the children making a special valentine for their family. A math lesson will be incorporated into their craft and they will learn the word "dozen." During President's Week, we will learn about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. The children wrote a letter to President Obama last month and they are hoping for a reply. We have been counting the days since September and soon it will be the 100th day of school! On the 100th day, the 4's will have a celebration which will include pizza and other delicious treats!
