Now that summer is on it's way, we are spending more time outside. Please make sure to sunscreen your child before coming to school. We provide sunscreen that we apply before going out in the afternoon, or you can provide you own. Just make sure to fill out a permission slip either way. Enjoy the sunshine!
Our theme this month is "Farm Life". To help reinforce the concepts, take your child to the grocery store with you and talk about which animals produce certain foods, i.e. chickens lay eggs, cows make hamburger, pigs are pork products, etc. Point out that the fruit grew on trees, and had to be harvested for the store. These conversations will help children understand the process of getting our food, and the importance of the people who work on farms.
The children are loving the new artificial grass and rubber matting on the playground. They had a beautiful playhouse built over the weekend. We're glad to be able to provide this cleaner, neater area for the children to play outside. And now that the weather is getting warmer, we plan to do it a lot!
