It is hard to believe another month has come and gone! It has been very exciting to see the children come back into the classroom and get excited about the interesting things we are exploring. Our interns, Ms. Stine, Ms. Kerby, and Ms. Gingell are exploring various aspects of habitats with the children. We are doing this through sand, paint, collaging, noises and music, and interactions with materials around the classroom. We have also been exploring with clay and weaving, giving the children an opportunity to explore and use various strategies to interact with the materials. We will update the progress of these investigations through photos and written documentation which we will post on our classroom blog. The teachers are beginning to think about which children are interested in specific aspects of our investigations so we can form our learning groups. When we do this, we will update our board at the front of the classroom.
We also wanted to remind you that the week of Feb. 25th through March 1st is our spring break. There is no school this week. We return to school the following week.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to ask! Have a wonderful month.
Catie Stone and Charlene Rodegher
