Minute to Win It!

We had a great time at our Valentine's Day party. Thanks to all of you who helped! We couldn't have done it without you! The kids had so much fun passing out valentines, creating their own ice cream sundaes, and playing a few minute to win it games!

Fun in the snow

This week we got to go outside in the snow for a while! We changed our shoes to boots and got to use shovels to clear parts of our playground! We even brought some snow inside with us to use in our sensory table. We pulled out some spray bottles and used our fine motor skills to spray the snow with colored water!

Character Education Corner

You may have noticed the bulletin board toward the front of the building. The bulletin board shows our district pirate principals with our 4 character building blocks on the bottom of the structure. Our building blocks were chosen by a team of parents, teachers and other faculty. That parent advisory team chose those 4 words from the district pirate principals to be the 4 main character building blocks that we discuss in our preschool classrooms.

Those character building blocks are caring, responsibility, respect and courage. These are things we are always working on in our classrooms and help us build a foundation for a successful future!

What's to come...

Grace has a facebook page now! If you are on facebook, please search for "Grace Early Childhood Center" and like our page!

Tuesday will be show and tell and the letter is "Ss".

We will continue to work on number recognition and counting.

Remember to use the parent/teacher communication page behind your sign in/out sheet if you want to. We have loved being able to communicate with you in a whole new way!

Also remember, any snow days we have, you will need to bring in your child's breakfast, lunch and snack.
