Welcoming March in Pre-K 2
Hello Pre K Families,
We had a great week in Pre -K 2 this week! A chilly one but a great one!
A new month brings about changes to our centers!
Dramatic Play- A bakery! Cookies, donuts, cake and cinnamon rolls to bake and sell! I was busy doing assessments during center time but the children took care of me, by bringing me peppermint tea and cookies!!
We had our first star of the day on Wednesday- Emma C. did a fantastic job and the class loved hearing about flat Teddy’s adventures at the Chamberlain’s house and learning a little more about Emma C.
Sensory Bins - This month, the bins are filled with dried green peas, numerous containers, spoon, trays and some St. Patrick’s themed treasures
Art Easel-This week at the easel the children painted rainbows, using lego pieces to crate the arch’s of color.

Reading Street Book- Close Your Eyes
A little tiger takes an imaginative journey
The little tiger lay on his back in the tall grass. "Close your eyes, little tiger," said his mother, "and go to sleep."
But the little tiger is worried about what sleep might bring. His mother reassures him that once he closes his eyes, he will dream of magical places. And when he awakens, she will be right there, waiting for him.
Alternating between real-life scenes with the baby tiger and his mother and enchanted dream scenes of sleep's possibilities, Kate Banks's simple, comforting text and Georg Hallensleben's bright, colorful illustrations make this a charming bedtime story for small children.
Close Your Eyes is a 2002 New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year and a 2003 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.
The letter of the week next week is K.
Show and tell on Tuesday for K.
