Welcome back, it has been so nice to see all the children again and to catch up on their fun and exciting stories. This month we will be talking about:
Feb 1-5: Loving others We will be learning about taking turns, giving to others, loving others and how to apologize to others when we make mistakes. We will be making thank you cards for the community, talking about Bucket filers and dippers along with attempting to make a friendship blanket. Letter: N, Number: 7, Social skills: Size of the problem
Feb. 8-12: Valentines We will be making many valentine projects this week. We will also do some fun activities with conversation hearts. Did you know that conversation hearts make great learning tools??? If you happen to have any extras at home or would like to donate a bag or two, we would greatly appreciate it. We will be counting, making patterns and playing games with them. We will also be having a valentines party on Friday Feb. 12th, watch your child’s backpack for a class list, if you choose to send valentines to exchange (this is optional). . Letter: Y, Number: 8, Social skills: Problem solving skills
Feb. 15-19 & 22-26: Transportation This is another preschool favorite to learn about. We will be talking about all things that fly, float and drive. We will make a shooting rocket, like they send into space and some other fun projects that have wings and wheels. We will float boats and drive into the dirt with construction vehicles. . Letter: A/Z, Number: 9/10, Social skills: The group plan/Thinking Thought and Feeling feelings
The Pyramid skill of the month for February is Teach problem solving skills using the 4 steps that lead to possible solutions.
Kids who feel overwhelmed or hopeless often won't attempt to address a problem. But, when you give them a clear formula for solving problems, they'll feel more confident in their ability to try.
Please call or text with child’s name 763-458-5217 when you arrive for drop off or pick up and a staff will come to the door
