Your Monthy Newsletter for March
Let’s take a look at what’s coming up for the month ahead, with reports on what was happening in each room at Happy Bunnies Child Care School in February.
Babies Room Report
In February Babies were learning some new signs from our sign language list of common signs to use with babies. We have been practicing the “thank you”, “please” and “I love you” signs the most.
There were some cool Valentine’s day cards going home too that your babies made for you.
Love waS in the air. Our babies read the “Love you for Ever” book by Robert Munch. We looked at the illustrations in the book and named the people we see. We continue to practice our signs for I love you, thank you, and Please.
We were also working on our family display. The children have been practicing their words for Mom and Dad.
Older Infants Report
We had a Valentine’s day theme up till February 14th. We were doing lots of artwork involving hearts and red color; we were learning about our feelings and how to be kind to each other.
There was a puppet show to give us a nice finale to our Valentine’s theme.
Our older babies continue to learn how to recognize their friends’ feelings. We were learning how to stay calm and kind even if it is very hard at times.
We read books about family and love: Daddy Love and Snuggle Puppies, just to name a few.
Our art projects involved lots of fun coloring, painting, and sticking.
We made Valentine’s cards for our parents to say just how much we love them!
We talked about our emotions and being kind to our friends, along with our traditional Valentine’s day crafts. We used pictures to show and name different emotions and imitate them by using emotion puppets.
We read “Love you forever” by Robert Munch.
We had some new children joining us this month in our room, so we got to know each other and make some new friends. We introduced a new “love heart matching game,” which was a big hit.
Last month, we talked about friendships and the importance of being kind and caring.
Ms. Tasha joined the preschoolers. She had previously been working with our Toddlers.
She helped preschoolers practice good manners, reading stories about the importance of polite behavior.
We had many sensory projects planned, so was lots of fun. We were working on our numbers, counting, and recognizing numerals 1-20.
