***This is a glimpse of what each classroom will be focusing on. Please see the classroom bulletin board for more detailed lessons.
Baby Sign Language:
This month’s baby sign are “Brother” & “Sister”. To sign the word “brother,” make both hands into an “L” shape. Hold one hand down by your chest and place the other hand at your forehead. Bring your top hand down to meet your lower hand. To sign the word “sister,” make the same motion as “brother,” but place your one hand at your chin and the other in front of your chest.
This month, your child will answer “what” and “where” questions, understand the concept of five, and identify the names of family members.
This month, your child will be counting items in groups of 1-5, recognizing first name in print, and matching parent and baby animals.
This month, your child will add together two group of objects, learn about various forms of transportation, and understand the meaning of traffic lights.
This month we will start creating sentences with sight words as well as focusing on rhyming words and word families. We will continue working on counting by fives, tens, and ones to 100.

Lucky’s Shamrock Popcorn Treat
Bag of microwave popcorn
3 tbsp of butter
1.5 cups of mini marshmallows
4 tbsp of Green Jello mix (I prefer lime)
1 bag of white chocolate chips
green sugar sprinkles
optional: shamrock sprinkles
Place the butter in a saucepan with the heat set on low. Slowly stir the mini marshmallows into the melting butter. You don’t have to let the marshmallows completely melt, but just so that they soften. Stir in the jello mix to give the mix the green color!
Place your already popped popcorn in a bowl, and pour in the green marshmallow mixture. Stir with a spoon to make sure the green coats evenly. Once you have the popcorn coated green, place it in a baking pan. Pop it in the oven for 3 to 5 minutes at 300 degrees. If the popcorn appears sticky, heating it in the oven will help reduce the stickiness.
As for the white chocolate drizzle, use the directions on the bag to melt 1 cup or less of the chips. Be careful not to burn the white chocolate as this can give it a brown tint. Once melted, drizzle on the popcorn as it is laid out in a baking pan. Then quickly sprinkle on the green sprinkles before the chocolate hardens. Normally I like to add shamrock shaped sprinkles as well, but my grocery store had not made those available at the time of posting. Please the popcorn (still in the baking pan) in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. It may take long depend how much chocolate you used. After the chocolate is harden, remove the popcorn and serve!
