Happy New Year to our Lower Preschool BVMS families.
January promises to be an exciting month for our three and four year olds!
Our schedule will change ever so slightly this Winter season. We will still enjoy Free Play first thing in the morning. Some choices such as play dough, sensory table and painting at the easel remain a constant while new choices are presented every Tuesday and Thursday keeping things fresh and interesting for our inquisitive youngsters. We gather for Circle time following clean up. This is a time for sharing, noting whom is absent and singing the “Good Morning” song where cha-cha-cha is actually (finally) sung in unison! Work/Play activities will then follow Circle. Work(ish) tasks will require direction following, focusing and having fun. Snack time is next on our agenda. We use this time to enjoy pleasant conversation with our table mates and press pause in the action of our day. Since some of our friends savor every little bite of their snack while others ingest a little more rapidly, we then offer books and puzzles until Gym time. Six of our friends will then join Mrs. Reynolds in the Gym for action and dancing. Boy, do they have the moves! The other six children will join Mrs. Carluccio for small group math, Handwriting Without Tears, and soon Zoo Phonics. We then meet together for a song, story or P. Mooney adventure. It’s quite a full day!
Please remember to review name, address and phone number with your child. Let’s make 2018 the year where each one of our Lower Preschool students truly knows this important information!!
Optional conferences will take place in late January, but if you have any questions, concerns, or things that make you go hmmmm, please don’t hesitate to call!
