Early Childhood

Happy Monday to everybody; we hope you have enjoyed this past weekend. Last week we had the change to continue reading a little bit more about Antarctica; the book we read was “Seven weeks on an iceberg” written by Keith R. Potter, we’ve enjoyed our reading very much!

Other important lesson we’ve had last week:

  • Winter work: identification of activities we do during winter time and the ones we do during other seasons.
  • New Practical life works in the shelf (relate to Valentine’s Day).
  • Several of our younger students have been working really hard on new pre-math works; they are really excited about learning new skills.
  • We’ve read a few Valentine’s books and our favorite one so far has been “Somebody loves you Mr. Hatch”.
  • We’ve enjoyed practicing a new skill on food preparation last week; this week we will learn how to make a snail using a piece of celery, cucumber, carrots, and cream cheese. We hope this new activity brings lots of excitement to the classroom.
  • Last Thursday our class was introduced to the “Ishi Book” also called “a cozy hug of a book”; this book is about an optimistic little rock who reminds the readers to choose and share happiness. We will read the book during this week and work on a little project, and then we will pass the book to another class. We would like to thank Mrs. Beaty and her kindergarten students for passing the book to us and for reading and showing us their little rocks.


  • Sweet heart breakfast is this coming Wednesday, February 14th  (8:00-9:00 am)
  • Valentine’s exchange in the classroom is schedule for Wednesday, February 14th. Please send a gift bag for your child (size 10”x12” approximately).
  • Please send a water bottle with your child every day.
  • Return Monday folder, mat covers, and pizza/lunch form on time.


Have a wonderful week!
