March is here, and the kids are loving our Dr. Seuss unit! It was nice to end February, "I Love to Read Month", by diving into more books! We have been working a lot on our literacy skills by practicing phonemic awareness, letter recognition, and doing some kid writing (i.e. upper case letters). We've also learned that the pictures in a book can help the reader read the words on the page, and I've even seen some preschoolers decoding some books on their own (Seriously, your kids are awesome). Here's a picture of some of them diving into a book:
Conference sign-ups are going up this week, so watch for those at the sign-in table. Also, a registration form for next year was sent home last week. Please get your schedules in for next year ASAP as we will begin enrollment soon. And one more thing: registration for summer camp is being sent home this week. You can return the forms at any time, but teachers can collect them at conferences for your convenience.
Thanks everyone and enjoy the last bit of winter (<-hopefully!!),
