Hi there! Welcome. I am excited for this year and to get to know your child. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out.
Welcome to Art. This week. we will read a story entitled The Dot by Peter Reynolds. Inspired by the story, students will decorate and paint their own paper dots. Due to the variety of materials that we will use in Art this year, any donation of baby wipes to the Art-room which to help us clean hands at the end of the each class would be greatly appreciated.
This week in music, we are learning the rules of the music classroom as well as some new songs to sing. We will also begin reviewing and expanding on rhythms.
This week we will be playing some get-to-know-you games in PE. We will be learning routines, rules and boundaries, and developing some norms. We will be introduced to new equipment and a variety of chasing/fleeing (tag) games.
Welcome back to school! I am so looking forward to teaching your child and working with you this year!
