December Newsletter 2015
Toddlers and Junior Preschoolers
The children have enjoyed packing bags and wearing sunglasses, to go on their “airplane” (steering wheels and rectangular hollow blocks) trips. They loved opening the detergent bottles and “pouring detergent” into the washing machine. Lots of mittens and dolls clothes got “washed and dried” in the Everyday Living Area, during the month of November.
We have noticed that the children love our science area with squirrels, spruce and pine cones and leaves (so that the squirrels can make nests for the winter). In keeping with this interest we will be putting pine cones and animals, with tongs and containers into our sensory bin for the month of December.
The science table will be the home for 2 small imitation trees which the children will be able to trim (over and over) with various decorations so that they will look like Christmas trees. Various candles and candle sticks will also be at the table for the children to use. Many types of bells will adorn our music shelf. These will help us with our practicing for our Christmas Concerts that will take place before our break for the holidays.
We wish you all a wonderful holiday and look forward to a terrific 2016!
See you in the New Year; Lisa and Janet
