A Note From Our Principal
February was a great month at our school! We held several family events and truly appreciate all those who participated. In anticipation of spring, our teachers are busy planning meaningful learning activities that will help students gain an appreciation for the changing seasons. In order to make the most of the next few months we will be spending extra time outdoors so our students can interact with nature. Please make sure your child has weather appropriate outerwear for school each day.
This month’s signs 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 allow the other in front of your chest .
Art projects are creative and fun ways to develop your child’s fine motor skills. Small-muscle activities, such as painting, help your child learn to control her hand and finger movements, while developing creativity and independence.
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 add together two groups of objects, learn about various forms of transportation, and understand the meaning of traffic lights.
This month, your child will match the beginning sounds of words, describe a five-step task in sequential order, and explore the differences between the daytime and nighttime sky.
This month, your child will sound out unfamiliar words independently, count by fives up to 25, and create and interpret a pie chart.
