Children's House Weekly Newsletter

Mrs. McLean, Mrs. Arleo, and Ms. Dana

April 27, 2015

This week we will be exploring the stories of Eric Carle. Eric Carle's stories are inspired by nature and touch upon many concepts that are so relevant to young children, such as the days of the week. In fact, the kindergarten children already read The Grouchy Lady Bug when we were learning about telling time. Eric Carle paid great attention to detail when illustrating his books. This is also a concept the kindergarten children have been learning during the process of writing and illustrating their very own stories. Some of our preschool children have also begun to write words to go along with the many pictures they draw and color. It is so exciting to see this process evolve. The books we will read this week include The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Little Cloud, and Pancakes, Pancakes.

Please keep in mind that school is closed this Friday, May 1, for Parent Teacher Conferences. Reminders for the time you have selected went home on Friday.
