Special Announcements
Mrs. Tracy’s September Newsletter I was so excited to meet my new class, both children and parents! The children were amazing! They all seemed to feel comfortable in their new classroom as well as with one another. I loved watching them make new friends. They were all so kind and caring to each other. With our theme being the jungle we read “Rumble in the Jungle,” a wonderful book filled with colorful animals in the jungle. We talked about what makes each of God’s creatures unique. We learned what makes each of us different and how there is no one just like us. Each child painted a self portrait which will hang outside our classroom. The Rhinoceros that they brought home was cut out by your child so I could assess their fine motor skills. We have so many good cutters in the class! Next week we will begin learning about colors and shapes and have some wonderful projects in the works. This month we will begin the alphabet, our first letter is “Aa.” The children will learn how to write both upper and lower case letters in the alphabet. Please help your child to discover new words that begin with the letter we are studying. Each morning at circle time we will be sharing a vocabulary word with our classmates. Our first field trip will be to Eastmont Orchards in Coltsneck. It is, for many of the children, their first ride on the big yellow school bus! Our trip is planned for Friday September 21. I will have the class moms ride the bus with us for this first trip. All other parents are invited to join us, with their own car, at the orchard. More details to follow. I would like to nip an issue in the bud in the beginning of the school year and that is my policy that children do not bring toys or personal items from home to the classroom. Thank you for helping me to reinforce this policy. I look forward to teaching your children and watching them grow. Have a great weekend!
