Dear Parents,
     Spring has FINALLY sprung and we couldn't be more excited here in Room 3! This month we will be learning about lots of springtime facts, and will be having fun adventures to go along with them. Please be sure to dress your child appropriately for outside play, as we will be enjoying as much outside play as we can.

      This month we will be working on the letters V and W, while focusing on the number 7 and the color yellow. There will be some of our artwork on display at the Ocean County Library in Toms River on April 1st  and all are welcome to check it out. We will be coloring Easter Eggs on Thursday April 17, so please send your child to school with three hardboiled eggs by Wednesday April 16.

      This months focus will be on using scissors, while continuing to work on our classroom manners. My friends have made fantastic strides this month and I couldn't be more proud of them all. Thank you for all the hard work you are doing at home!

 

Sincerely,

Dear Parents,

       Spring is here and the children are so glad to be back outdoors again. Please remember to have your child wear sneakers and jackets to school. We may eat outside, if the weather allows, so please pack a picnic style lunch.

       The “pot of gold” was found and we were very excited. The month of March kept us hunting for leprechauns. The children will be thrilled to see the Easter Bunny visit Hillcrest this month! 

       This month we will be working on our address and telephone number. Forms will be sent home to be filled out and returned so we are sure to have the most current information to teach your child.

       April is the month of the Young Child; we will be having a special breakfast for the children as well as a continental breakfast for families. Also, the children will be working on a shadow play for the other classes. Please check your calendar for other activities in April.

        Thank You!

 

Happy Spring,

Dear Parents,

      We are so excited to be able to go outside on our buggy rides again. Our babies have made such progress through the winter months.

      We will continue working on our sensory skills such as touch, smell and taste. Our Spring Party will be on Thursday April 17. There will be a sign up sheet on our door. 

      During our daily circle time we sing our favorite songs and read our favorite stories. We will continue to work on our motor skills while crawling, sitting up, standing and enjoying tummy time. Our older children will be learning how to share and repeat simple words.

      Sign up for the diaper program and never have to bring diapers or wipes again. It easy, convenient and inexpensive.
