Our friend Zaeden's last day with us was yesterday. We will miss you so much and wish you all the best. Our Z-you Later (Z themed) party went well. Everyone looked good in their best Zebra gear and enjoyed their zebra cakes to wish him well. Let us know if you need his contact info for play dates.

In the Classroom!

Goodbye to our friend Zaedan and welcome back to Ella. Also this month Veronica will be moving to the Sherlock's with Ms. Alisha.


August is our back to school month of fun! We will be learning and practicing various consonant-vowel-consonant (or CVC) words, we will be testing things that float and dissolve, working on greater than and less than, as well as learning to balance (eggs, our bodies, and other objects we can find in the classroom).

Healthy Start Wisdom

Back to Business

Hope everyone had a wonderful summer. The stories from your student(s)' about vacations helped me to explore the world through their eyes! Now that we are back to focusing on our zoo-phonics friends, we are also focusing on early reading with your Sawyer. These awesome videos are fun, catchy and very easy to get the wheels of phonics working in a flash.

The Book Nook

Marvelous Me

There is no one else quite like Alex. With his special laugh, his grizzly hugs, and his own interesting thoughts, Alex is one of a kind. Presenting similarities and differences Alex has with others, Marvelous Me, by Lisa Bullard, will encourage children to embrace the things that make them unique. Playful illustrations and fun activities make this book a great addition to home and classroom libraries.

  • We're adding some awesomeness to our outdoor play space. Our's 2's teachers are tackling this big job. We are in need of old pot, pans, utensils, and wooden planks. They are planning to create a music wall, mud kitchen, and reading area. Please let us know if you have anything that you'd like to donate for our cause. Thank you!
