No School Jan. 21. MLK Jr. Birthday.
We had a great first week back to school. It was wonderful to see everyone again. We are working on lots of goals for every class. We are very excited to have 8 new families join our school this semester! Seven are in our 2 ½-3-year-old class on TTh. We are thrilled to have James Thomas return to our MWF morning class. Now we have 2 boys in that class.
Our goals for the TTh class are the following:
1. Play beside each other and share the toys.
2. At clean-up time put toys away in their special spot without teacher guidance. At the moment it takes lots of guidance.
3. Participate when we are doing our finger plays and try to make their hands do the motions.
Some of our songs are Itsy Bitsy Spider, Two little blackbirds, 3 little monkeys, Wheels on the bus, Twinkle Little Star, Going on a bear hunt.
4. At snack use thank you and please, stay in the chair while eating, throw trash away.
This class is quickly learning our schedule, listening to our story, some are using our bathroom and all are great at exploring all our different toys and books in our room. It is a wonderful little class and it is a joy to see them arrive at school.
Our goals for the MWF morning class and our PreK class are the same concepts for the Solar System.
1. Name planets in order from the sun and that they are in an orbit revolving around the sun.
2. Know what gravity is.
3. Know how we get day and night by the earth’s rotation.
4. Know the sun is a star.
We are also studying our moon. We are trying to make craters in a tub of flour. We are learning about the phases of the moon. I hope everyone will watch for the full blood super moon this weekend. The lunar eclipse will start at 8:30 pm Jan. 20, Sunday night. If you google super moon and blood moon you will know why it is called that.
We have also been talking about Mars and the probe, Insight that has landed on Mars. We will be watching a model of the landing on Mars. You can also find this if you google Insight and NASA.
MWF morning class other goals are the following:
1. Putting numbers 1-20 in order and counting to 20.
2. We will start learning the letters of the alphabet and put the letters in order.
3. We need to start getting everyone writing their name. We spell all the letters looking at their name at snack.
This class has improved in their sharing of all the toys! They all play with each other and our class is becoming a little family. We sing the days of the week, months of the year and someone is the meteorologist and tells what the weather is doing. They love story time. We just read The Magic School Bus in the Solar System.
The PreK afternoon class goals are the following:
1. Write their numbers to 100. (We will start next week)
2. Know the names and sounds of the alphabet.
3. Write the letters of the alphabet.
4. Count to 100 without help. In 25 days we will celebrate our 100th day of school.
5. Know who Martin Luther King is.
6. Memorize “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” By Robert Frost.
7. Know their address and when their birthday is.
This class is a family. They are great singers and someone always seems to be singing! They love a challenge.
We love teaching your children. Thank you for giving us the opportunity. Tisha and Marlys are wonderful teachers helping to keep our classroom safe and making our classroom a loving, caring environment.

It was so good to see everyone back at school this week! Everyone looked so tall; I think everyone grew over Thanksgiving. We are practicing good manners at our snack table. We are saying “May I", "please", and "thank you" and chewing with our mouths closed. Thanks for the great snacks! All classes are working on numbers, shapes and memorizing our Christmas songs. I will be sending out our Christmas Program with all the speaking parts for the MWF morning class and the PreK class. The TTH class is invited to come up on stage at the end of our program and sing our last 3 songs. The following is a list of events we have planned for December. Please notice the class the event is for. Please email me if you have questions.
Thank you for all your help in making these events possible!!
