Dear Families,


Hope everyone enjoyed the Holidays with their family and winter break. Here is what is going on in our preschool classroom this month: our theme this month is focused on winter and various winter animals. Our color this month is white and our shape is a star. We will be continuing to work on identifying and writing our names (Literacy and Fine Motor). We will also be focusing on the letters I, J, and K during the month and number 4, 5, and 6 (Literacy and Math). We will also be building snow people and comparing sizes (Fine Motor and Math).


During the month we will be reading a variety of books related to our theme for this month and be on the lookout for this months book order forms from Scholastic (Due back Wednesday January 20th). Again any questions or concerns please feel free to send an e-mail to kasey.girton@chariho.k12.ri.us at any point.


See the note in your child's folder for the family monthly project! Due Thursday the 28th.


Sincerely,


Miss Girton, Miss Jen, and Miss Vicky

Songs to practice at home!


Snowey Pokey

(Sung to: "I'm a Little Teapot")

You put your right mitten in, You take your right mitten out,

You put your right mitten in and you shake it all about.

You do the Snowey pokey and you turn yourself around.

That's what it's all about.

Note continue with additional verses:

You put your left mitten in

You put your scarf in

You put your right boot in

You put your left boot in

You put your hat in

You put your snowself in


I'm a Little Snowflake

I'm a little snowflake, Look at me.

No other snowflake is just like me.

I am so unique, as you can see.

And just as special as I can be.


Snowflake Dance

(Sung To: "Are you Sleeping")

Dance like snowflakes, Dance like snowflakes

In the air, In the air

Whirling, Twirling snowflakes, Whirling, Twirling snowflakes

Here and there, Here and there


Five Little Snowmen

Five little snowmen sitting on the ground, (stomp feet on floor)

The first one said; 'oh my aren't we round' (make circle with arms)

The second one said; "'there are snowflakes in the air"(point and wiggle fingers)

The third one said; "but we don't care." (shrug shoulders)

The fourth one said; "let’s run and run and run. (Run in place)

The fifth one said; "I'm ready for some fun." (Smile Big)

Whew went the wind (blow) and out came the sun (point)

And the five little snowman knew their fun was done. (Hang head sadly)
