TEACHER TALK:

ROOM 101: February just flew by! We had a great time with our 5-senses week. We were busy tasting, smelling, touching, seeing and hearing all about the world we live in. Thank you, to all who helped with our Valentine’s Day party. A special thank you for all the nice cards and gifts. This month we will learn an Irish Blessing just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. Please note – occasionally we will be giving the children “remembering homework”. We only tell the children not the parents. Notice the title “remembering homework”. We will also work on our addresses and our phone numbers and we will even learn how to call 911 in an emergency. Have you

seen our bookworm lately? Keep bringing in those great books!

Mrs. Geni & Miss Jessica

ROOM 102: Wow…March is already here, and we will start the month by celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We will be busy learning about St. Patrick’s Day, Spring, our home phone numbers as well as our home addresses. Thank you, to all of our wonderful parents who contributed to our Valentines Day party it was fabulous! Also, many thanks for all of our valentine cards and sweet treats. Don’t forget to sign-up once a month for snack, it’s such a special day for your child. Please remember to bring extra change of clothes for your child daily. Have a wonderful Spring.

Mrs. Asma & Ms. Antonela

ROOM 103: It's hard to believe that spring is almost here! We will kick off March celebrating Dr. Seuss, Wacky Wednesday, and a pajama Friday where we will serve "Green Eggs and Ham." Our tricky friend Lorcan O'Leary, the Leprechaun, will be visiting our classroom. He is a little mischievous so be prepared for some silly stories. We will bake a green cake for our St. Patrick’s Day celebration. As we prepare for spring we will explore the life cycle of the butterfly and the change of seasons. Sounds like a busy March. Thank you, parents, for continuing to sign up for and bringing in a variety of healthy snacks. Thank you.

Mrs. Joanna & Mrs. Jennifer

ROOM 104: March is here! This month we will be reviewing our colors, shapes as well as, learning about art, paintings, famous artists and their masterpieces. Towards the middle of the month we will talk about spring, St. Patrick’s Day, transportation and the life cycle of butterfly. We will be getting a visit from our friend Patrick O’Melveny the Leprechaun. Our St. Patrick’s Day party will be on Friday, March 17. Don’t forget to dress your children in green! We look forward to a beautiful month and hope the Leprechauns will bring us sunny warm weather and rainbows. We Love You!!!

Ms. Ani & Mrs. Silva

ROOM 105: March 2nd we will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a scrumptious “Green Eggs and Ham” snack. We will draw beautiful rainbows, colorful shamrocks and will try very hard to catch a Leprechaun. We will need your child’s shoe no later than April 7th, as it takes the children several days to finish this special gift. Our annual Mother’s Day tea will be on May 12th at 11:00 a.m. in Room 105. Thank you for providing a nutritious snack on your child’s day. We would like to give a special thank you to Angie Platt, Jennifer Mero, Karine Margaryan, Cecilia and Jamin Cleveland for being such an amazing room parents.

Make sure that that your child wears green on our St. Patrick’s Day celebration on March 17.

Mrs. Wall & Mrs. Sossi

ROOM 106: We had a great time celebrating Dr. Seuss Birthday! The fun continues as we work on shapes. Circles, triangles and squares… we will learn them all. We will take time and try to catch a leprechaun so he can show us where he hides his gold at the end of a beautiful rainbow. On March 17 we will have an all green snack to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. After all that green, we will review colors and end the month hopping into spring with farm animals . . . maybe old McDonald will pay us a visit. A friendly reminder to sign in and out every day and check your kid’s cubbies for clean extra clothes including a pair of shoes. Happy Spring.

Mrs. Rosa & Mrs. Shahla

PEEKING OVER THE FENCE WITH MRS. GAEL: As we spring into March … bugs, butterflies, blooms and birds will be our focus. We will observe spring through art activities outside this month. We will create caterpillar clips, wacky rainbows and more.

AFTER NAP: March is finally here! With the first day of Spring we will have some great sunny weather to enjoy. It is also National crafts month. We will be celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, with lots of art projects, rainbows, pots of gold, and shamrocks. We will also be making some wonderful Dr. Seuss’ arts, such as Cat in The Hat, One fish, two fish…..Don’t forget to stop and look at our colorful boards. The afternoon staff would like to remind parents to label all your child’s belongings. Have a wonderful Spring.
