November is the time that our toddlers will be learning about the change in weather, colors of the leaves and to be thankful for their families. One of the projects the children will be doing is collecting leaves, sticks and acorns to make collages. Many of our books will be about Thanksgiving and why leaves are changing colors. We will be giving them the chance to make their own family tree since many of their families will be welcoming an addition soon!
December is every child's favorite time of the year! As we are about to end 2013, the children will be singing, playing, and making projects for each holiday this month. Examples of these would be making a Christmas tree, a beaded necklace for Kwanza, and a dreidel for Hanukkah. The books that we will share with them will increase their listening skills as well as provide a visual to understand the holidays.
We would like to welcome our new staff member to this room - Amanda Vazquaz. Amanda comes to us with a teaching certification is Elementary Education and we are happy to have her with us!

The colder weather will be approaching soon and I am hoping that we will be able to make use of this for craft and science projects. Also we will be doing projects relating to the season and the up coming holidays.
We are continuing to work on letters and numbers and talking about the weather. We would like tol start our reading project in the New Year. A lot of the children are working on puzzles which we are using for problem solving.
They are really happy to be outside and enjoying the leaves and cooler weather. Some of them are sleeping very well at naptime!
