Spring is in the air! March will be the beginning of going outside when weather permits. Please make sure your student has on comfortable shoes and clothing for their week of P.E. We are learning how to throw and catch. Virtual students have been doing a great job of having an item to throw at home. Thank you! After Spring Break, we will start working on field day games and activities!
This month we will be focus on learning the names and sounds of instruments in the orchestra. We will begin to identify instruments visually and learn to recognize their sounds in music.
This month in art we will be studying color theory. We will start with the primary colors red, blue, and yellow. We will learn that mixing primary colors make the secondary colors purple, green, and orange. Next, we will learn the warm colors red, orange, and yellow and the cool colors blue, green, and purple. We will use these colors to color our directed drawings.
Student Health & Safety
Lets talk about FLU SEASON; the best defense is to VACCINATE! Annual influenza vaccination is the best protection against influenza and is recommended in the United States for all people >6 months. Influenza vaccines reduced complications from illness, pediatric influenza A- associated hospitalizations, and Emergency Department visits.
Also, if your child has turned 4, don't forget to get those vaccines. This will get them ready for KINDERGARTEN 2021-2022!
- Please provide 3 changes of clothes for students daily. Please refer to the district's toileting policy provided by your classroom teacher for more information.
Hello Crockett Cub Family,
We are Mrs. Lopez, your School Counselor and Ms. Gaines, your Social-Emotional Learning Counselor. It is truly a pleasure to support all the children and families at Crockett EES. We actively work to provide our students weekly guidance lessons, individual counseling sessions, and various virtual parent education classes. If your child is in need of any social-emotional support, please fill out the counselor consultation form. The form can be found by clicking the following link:
Our vision is for all of our young learners at Crockett Early Education School to develop fundamental skills; academically, socially and emotionally at an early age so that they can succeed and find their unique and individual passion in life.
Our mission is to support our School District’s youngest learners in reaching their highest potential socially, emotionally and academically. We provide students and families with a counseling program that addresses skills and techniques that foster social, emotional, and academic growth to all children to prepare them for school readiness.
This month, the students will be learning about cooperating and being considerate of others. Thee concepts create opportunities for children to teach and learn from one another. By practicing teamwork skills and developing strategies for self-regulation, students will find compatible ways to collaborate while respecting each other's individuality. Here is how you can support your students’ learning at home:
●Ask your child to think of things that are important to do when working together. Include everyone, listen and cooperate, and use kind words.
●Talk with your child about the ways your family cooperates with one another (making
dinner, washing the car, or putting together a puzzle) and discuss how much fun it can
be to work together and how everyone helps to get the job completed.
●Tell your child when you notice him or her using teamwork skills and point out how it is helpful.
○I saw how carefully you were listening to Grandma explain how to pat the soil down around the plant, and the garden looks great after all your hard work today!
○Play games that help your child practice self-regulation, or purposely change their behavior.
○Alternate between counting to 10 very quickly and then very slowly.
○Play loud music and dance excitedly, and then begin to dance more slowly as you turn down the volume.
●Brainstorm with your child to create a special signal, such as palms facing up/down to indicate “turn it up” or
“turn it down,” that can provide a gentle reminder to adjust behavior, and help him or her practice doing this.
●Tell your child when you notice him or her intentionally calming down and discuss how that feels.
Mark your calendars!
