News for the week of May 4th

Five Senses Theme

This week we will begin a "5 Senses" theme! We will learn about all the ways our 5 senses help us experience and explore the world around us. Every few days we will introduce a new sense and we will do new activities to help us realize how important each sense is to us. This week we will be learning about our sense of sight and smell. See below for a fun song about the 5 senses.

May is Better Hearing and Speech Month

Ms. Sandy (Speech and Language Pathologist) wanted to share a few tips with us throughout the month of May!

PARENTS: *Fast tip for encouraging your child’s language development

Instead of you always being the one reading books to your child, have your child tell the story by describing the pictures on each page.

So, the next time your child brings you their favorite book, say, “I want you to tell me the story.” Some children worry that they cannot read the words on the pages, but you can tell them that they can read the pictures.

Zoo Field Trip

Thank you for all the responses to chaperone for the Friday, May 22nd zoo field trip. All chaperone spots have been filled. If you have not yet done so please send back your child's permission slip and $2 fee as soon as possible. Reminder: On the field trip day there will be no regular 4K classes. The field trip will run from 8:35 am to 1:30pm. We would appreciate if at all possible that you drop off and pick up your child this day. If bussing is necessary please indicate this on the form sent home. Thanks!

Super job as "Star of the Week" Kai! Thanks for showing us your favorite toy and some silly pictures of yourself. It was fun having your mom and sister visit to show the class your dog Peyton! Awesome job Kai!
