In February, we will continue working with manipulative motor skills. The students will begin this unit with throwing and catching. Please have a ball or something similar for my virtual friends. We will also explore jump roping and using a hula hoop. Let’s have some socially distant fun!
This month we will continue developing our voices while reviewing concepts of steady beat, low and high, same and different, and loud and soft. We will be focusing on learning the seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall and exploring music and sounds of each season.
This month we will be studying the element of art called texture. We will practice different pattern drawing techniques to show texture. We will be drawing a different texture monster everyday. The students will need a piece of paper, black marker, and their crayons this week.
Student Health & Safety
Lets talk about FLU SEASON; the best defense is to VACCINATE! Annual influenza vaccination is the best protection against influenza and is recommended in the United States for all people >6 months. Influenza vaccines reduced complications from illness, pediatric influenza A- associated hospitalizations, and Emergency Department visits.
Also, if your child has turned 4, don't forget to get those vaccines. This will get them ready for KINDERGARTEN 2021-2022!
- Please provide 3 changes of clothes for students daily. Please refer to the district's toileting policy provided by your classroom teacher for more information.
Hello Crockett Cub Family,
We are Mrs. Lopez, your School Counselor and Ms. Gaines, your Social-Emotional Learning Counselor. It is truly a pleasure to support all the children and families at Crockett EES. We actively work to provide our students weekly guidance lessons, individual counseling sessions, and various virtual parent education classes. If your child is in need of any social-emotional support, please fill out the counselor consultation form. The form can be found by clicking the following link:
Our vision is for all of our young learners at Crockett Early Education School to develop fundamental skills; academically, socially and emotionally at an early age so that they can succeed and find their unique and individual passion in life.
Our mission is to support our School District’s youngest learners in reaching their highest potential socially, emotionally and academically. We provide students and families with a counseling program that addresses skills and techniques that foster social, emotional, and academic growth to all children to prepare them for school readiness.
This month, students will focus on attitudes and behaviors that are critical for maintaining positive and supportive relationships. Caring for Others is vital to positive peer relationships. In this unit, students will practice acts of kindness and share expressions of gratitude. Feeling valued, responded to, and cared for helps children develop a caring attitude and empathy for others. When children feel connected to others, they develop a sense of social responsibility.
Ways to promote Caring for Others at Home:
- Ask your child how he or she helped a classmate “have a good day.”
- “Catch” your child being kind to someone and point out how good it must have made the
- Model small acts of kindness during your daily activities and talk with your child specifically about how and why the act benefited the other person.
- Brainstorm ways your family can do kind things for others in your neighborhood or community or
participate in a community service project as a family.
