Welcome to the Bear (Ms. Anna's) and Bear cub (Ms. Maira’s) class page!
This last month was a blast! We welcomed in a new year, with some cooking projects, new persons of the week, a new fish tank for our fish friends, new slippers, a new families book and even a few science experiments.
In the Classroom
The curriculum this month will focus on friendship around the world, dental hygiene, symmetry in art, Chinese New Year, and phonetic letters: ‘o’, ‘i’, and ‘j’.
Songs to be sung in the classroom this month are:
"This Little Light of Mine"
"Make New Friends"
"He's Got the Whole World in His Hands"
Cooking days this month are alternating Thursdays and Fridays. Recipes include traditional dishes from the continent of Asia.
Fridays from now on will be an all day relaxing event where everyone is invited to wear their PAJAMAS! We will be doing cooking and promoting a fun and relaxing atmosphere, with board games and fort building! Don’t miss out.

Tips for Success at School
- Please make sure your child has had an appropriate complete breakfast meal before arriving at school. Do not send your child to school with food in hand or in their mouth. We do not have a breakfast program.
- Please send your child to school with healthy lunch foods in containers that easy for them to open by themselves. They feel so good when they can do it on their own!
- If your child has long hair or bangs, please have the hair pulled back or with a headband. Long hair gets in children's eyes during work time, while eating and often causes them to not see well.
- Please remain in the cubby area for drop-off and pick-up. The classroom is set up in a manner that allows the children to have a quiet, peaceful space to focus and concentrate on their work. Please wait to greet your child in the cubby area to avoid disrupting the environment.
We appreciate your cooperation in helping your child's experience be the best it can be!
Please supply your child with a pair of comfortable close toed, non-skid slippers to wear in the classroom. The children will add a new step to their morning arrival routine by changing out of their outside shoes into their 'classroom slippers'. The slippers will be for indoor use only and they will change into their outside shoes when we get ready to go outside.The slippers will stay at school for the duration of their enrollment at Little Oaks. If you have any questions please let us know.
