In the month of March, toddlers will be celebrating Dr. Seuss! We will be reading his books, "One Fish Two Fish" and "The Cat in the Hat". The toddlers will also be celebrating St.Patrick's Day, creating shamrocks and hand print rainbows. We will even be on the lookout for leprechauns!
With warmer weather in April (fingers crossed!) the toddlers will be spending more time outside. We will focus on gross motor skills like running, jumping, and climbing steps. For the rainy days in Spring, the toddlers will dye eggs and read "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Chick" for circle time.

What a joke the groundhog played on us! When he predicted six more weeks of winter, he didn't fool around. Enough with the frigid temperatures and snowfalls. Bring on SPRING!!
March winds will blow in some fun themes. We will celebrate the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. We plan on our annual support of Muscular Dystrophy with a HOP-A-THON ! We will go West with a week of stick ponies, campfires, cowboy/cowgirl boots and western attire. March celebrates my Irish roots. St. Patrick's Day will bring rainbows, leprechauns, shamrocks, and gold.
The end of March and throughout April our focus will be anything pastel. Blooming flowers, eggs, rabbits, and chicks will brighten our days.
WE HAVE SLOTS OPEN IN OUR PRESCHOOL CLASSES FOR 3 AND 4 YEAR OLDS!
Greeting from the Preschool 2 class! Our class will begin the month of March with a HOP-A-THON. The children will be learning about disabilities and then "hop" to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy.
The children will be learning to recognize the letters L and N. March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. The class will be making lion and lamb masks. The children will continue to work on their number books and practice writing their name. We will be doing some fun Spring projects.
Looking ahead to April:
Letter M - the kitchen area will be changed into a mail room
Letter U - umbrella parade and upside down cake
Letter E - elephants and egg hunt
