TTH Yellow Family April 1-10
Thank you to Katie Kontos for being room parent this month.
PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES are on April 11th. There is a schedule of times on the sign in table. If the time you are assigned does not work for you please find someone to switch times with and let me know. Please try to be on time as the conference is only 20 minutes for each child. There is no class that day.
ALL SCHOOL BEACH DAY is on April 12th at Lovers’ Point Beach. Bring your beach towels, buckets, shovels, swimsuits and food to the beach. Everyone has a great time playing in the sand and water. All children must be accompanied by a parent or adult.
We will be starting our day outside for the month of April. After using the bathroom and washing hands please come to the patio on Tuesday and sand on Thursday. It can still be pretty cold outside in the mornings so please dress in layers.
The class will be separating for snack and family. In family we are currently working on colors, shapes and patterning. During family time we have been beading large beads and patterning with two colors. We have also been playing the game swat the shape with a fly swatter.
