This Thursday is Grandparents’ Night from 6-7 p.m. Your children can show them what they like to do in school and who their friends are. Feel free to tag along. Perhaps you missed Parents’ Night, or perhaps you’d like to see the current themes. We welcome you!
Even though we let the ladybugs go, we still have some ladybug activities on the shelves. Heart activities soon will make way for rainbows and shamrocks. Green objects will make their way onto the shelf for exploring. Gold coins for posting and other cute seasonal work are in store.
In the coming weeks, you can expect themes of lizards and frogs, Australian animal representations, land, air and water activities, and birds.
The number 7 is going to replace 6 in the counting drop box.
Some of the songs soon to be part of your children’s lives:
One little, two little, three little shamrocks,
Four little, five little, six little shamrocks,
Seven little, eight little, nine little shamrocks,
Ten little shamrocks bringing you luck!
St. Patrick is a leprechaun, he has a pot of gold.
He hides it in a special place, between two logs I’m told.
We dance to Music Together song, such as: “Dance to your daddy, my little laddie…”
and to “Ran Tin Tinnah,” which is one of my favorite melodies!
After spring break, the theme will change to spring with chicks, eggs, bunnies, ducks, and baby animals.
I am a baby bird, hatching from my shell.
Out comes my head, then comes my tail.
Now my legs I stretch, my wings I give a flap,
I fly and fly and fly, now what do you think of that?
Down, down, down, down, down, down.
Five eggs and five eggs, that makes ten,
Sitting on top is mother hen.
Cackle, cackle, cackle, what do I see?
Ten fluffy chicks, as lovely as can be!
I saw a little bunny go hop, hop, hop.
I said little bunny won’t you stop, stop stop.
I saw his little eyes go blink, blink, blink.
I saw his little nose go twink, twink, twink.
I said little bunny, won’t you stay.
Then he looked at me, and he hopped away!
I look forward to see you all on Grandparents’ Night!
