March is a busy month this year. We have Dr. Seuss week, St.Patrick's Day and Easter all crammed into this month.
This month’s music Class is “Under the Rainbow” During class we’ll explore the concept of high and low sounds with Irish music, tricky leprechauns, and the colors of the rainbow. We’ll also match sounds with pictures, and match pictures with the written words to build lasting literacy skills.
During Dr. Seuss week - this past week our focus was the Letter S – how we can make an S with Play-dough and it looks like a Snake and the sound that it makes. Some words that we had fun with were*Sizzle* *Splat*
Our color focus: red & blue and when you mix them together (Science) we make purple.
We practiced directional skills as we learn about opposites, searched High and low and on top of and under the furniture. With the help of Hap Palmer we worked on more opposites. (In & out - front & back)
Your children will bring home learning in their heads rather than on paper.
At home you can encourage these skills by playing color red & blue & letter S hunting games. Place some toys or household items up high and down low. In a box, basket, under a table/chair. Ask them to tell you where it is? Encouage them to say *I* found it under the chair. In front of or behind the couch.
