In the Classroom!




  • Remind Me App: It's a free app that we're using to for simple reminders like show and share, friend of the week, physical due dates, etc. Our class code is 26kh9g
  • Five words: Safflower, sand, quinoa, feathers, garlic!! Many of our sensory table activities throughout the month explore these things. I'm really excited and I bet the kiddos will LOVE them!
  • Hooray for PJ day!! Don't forget to show those PJs off November 19th and 20th!
  • Thanksgiving Day crafts, Christmas crafts, New Years crafts, OH MY! We will be busy, but we will love every second of it!
  • This month we will be continuing to work on our social emotional skills by being gentle to our friends and by being able to say all of our friend's names. We love playing with different toys with our friends, so being able to share them is an important lesson to learn too.

Scholastic

I'm super excited for some Thanksgiving books this month...are you?? Check out all the deals for this month!! Scholastic will be sent out November 6th and will orders will be due November 15th. Our online code is HQ686

Tax Time is Approaching...

Dear Tot Spot Families,

I am sending this email because we are getting close to the end of the year and therefore close to tax season. Because of our changes from Rapid Tuition to Tuition Express there will be two-year end summaries (a mid year summary for Rapid Tuition and a year-end summary). I emailed all our families when we transferred from Rapid Tuition at the time of the change, so please check your email history for that email. As far as Tuition Express, every family has direct access to your billing receipts through www.myprocare.com . If you have already signed up with www.myprocare.com you are ahead of the game. However, if you have not, you can register from this link www.myprocare.com. You will use the email you received this message from to login. If you have any problems, please let me know.

Thanks again,


Michael Ramsey

Goodbye Summer....Hello Sickness! :(

As you all know cold season is approaching. Please help us prevent the spread of sickness by making sure to wash your kiddos hands in the morning before leaving. Talk to them about pretending to be an elephant and covering their mouth with their elbow (Use your sleeve, don't spread disease) Please encourage singing their hand washing song and most importantly....using the paper towel to turn the faucet off. Thank you for all your support in keeping TTS as healthy as we possibly can!!

Healthy Start Wisdom

Cook Something Bold Day!

November 8th is Cook Something Bold Day! You are a Super-Mom; so show off your powers by staying bold and by having dinner done in under an hour! This looks very yummy and I am going to try it out myself!

The Book Nook

Biscuit Is Thankful

Biscuit is the puppy whom most of you all know about! This book is so sweet and I bet the little one's will love it! WOOF!

Reminders


  • Please make sure that your child has weather appropriate clothing in their cubbies. Now the weather is starting to cool off we need long sleeve shirts, long pants and jackets.

Thank you!!!


    • We so appreciate you supporting our fundraising efforts such as parent's night out!
    • Remember there is a suggestion box in the lobby, and we love to hear about ideas to enhance the learning environment for your children.
    • Thank you for voting in our first annual pumpkin decoration contest. We can't wait to see what our kiddos and staff come up with next year!!
    • Thanks to all who toughed out the cold weather and went to Tuttle's with us! It was super cold but spending time with our Tot Spot Family made it worth it!
    • Thank you for all the special teacher treats that really touch our hearts (doughnuts, cookies, the supplies for VIPS, and various donations you've made) We can't express enough how much we truly appreciate anything and everything you do for us

Would you like to donate?

  • Scrap Paper
  • Food coloring
  • EXPO dry erase marker cleaning spray
  • Musical instruments
  • Baby/Vegetable Oil
  • Corn Starch
  • Is there ever a time when you say to yourself, " I wonder if The Tot Spot would want this"? We could use it in so many ways. You may have babies, but the whole school is yours. Everything can turn into a sensory activity or learning experience. So, before you throw out your junk, ask your teacher if it could be used

The Teacher's Spotlight

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives and why?


  • Ms. Lauren: No answer available
  • Ms. Kayla: Vampires, like the good ones in Twilight and Vampire diaries. I love reading vampire romance books.
  • Ms. Alisha: I’m not really into mystical creatures. I'm gonna say just regular creatures that can talk. Like a worm. I'd love to know what a worm thinks about all day.
  • Mr. Mike: Unicorns Lela loves unicorns
  • Ms. Le Andra: Mermaids of course!! Anyone who knows me knows I love Ariel!!
  • Ms. Danielle: Dragons! For obvious reasons. Coolest things ever.
  • Ms. Katie: I wish unicorns existed. I was obsessed with them as a little girl and love horseback riding. So, it would combine two of my favorite things.
  • Ms. Erin: Pegasus, because Greek myths are my favorite
