Classroom News

For the first 6 weeks we will be starting off the year with learning the in's and out's of the classroom. We will learn how to put the toys we played with away properly, how to recognize the names of feelings, calm down strategies, and our daily routines. Hand washing will be a huge part of our daily routine. I have provided a picture below on how to properly wash your hands. Please work with your child on this to help us out when they are in class. You can sing "Happy Birthday" or the "ABC" song while you wash to make sure it's 20 seconds.
