News for the week of March 4th

Weather Theme

Happy March! I am hoping to inspire more spring type weather with this newsletter background. :) This week we will start a "Weather" theme in 4K. The students will learn the phrase "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb". Each day we will decide if the weather is more like a "lion" or more like a "lamb". We will be making lion, lamb, and rainbow art projects. Our dramatic play center will be turned into a "Weather Station"! Click on the links below to play some weather matching games.

Read Across America

Our 4K classes participated in "Read Across America" where they got lots of books read to them. Thanks to all of the "Readers"! The kids had fun listening to all the great books! Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss! Go to www.seussville.com for some fun Dr. Seuss themed games and activities!

Jolly Phonics

The Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "Z". The action for the letter "Z" sound was to put your arms out at your sides and flap them like a bee, saying zzzzzzzzz. Click on the link below and choose the letter "Z". From there you can watch an interactive video with a game about the letter "Z". Click on the video below to hear the Jolly Phonics letter "Z" song!
