September

Hello!  Welcome to our Class Blog. 
Here you will find pictures and weekly information about what is going on in our classroom.  

September is about learning the ropes, meeting new friends, and settling into a new routine. 

We have begun to learn some of our Montessori materials.  We have worked really hard and are so excited to accomplish new things!



We have enjoyed playing with our friends on the playground! 
Play allows children to use their creativity while developing their imagination, dexterity, and physical, cognitive, and emotional strength.  Play is important to healthy brain development. It is through play that children learn to engage and interact with their world.







Sensory Table
You will see our sensory table all throughout our school year with various materials for the children to explore.  Sensory activities are fun and interesting for children, it encourages them to be curious and investigate.  What does the object feel like?  What does it smell like?  Does it make a sound?  In addition, sensory activities help to build nerve connections in their brains.  It also helps the development of motor skills that they will need to begin to write.



In our bins this week we explored various size letters and numbers.  We used tweezers, spoons and cups to manipulate the letters.


Just a reminder to send in two napkins (one to wipe their face and one to be a place mat).  Please make sure your child has utensils to eat with as I do not have disposable utensils in the classroom.  

Please remember to fill your child's water bottle up before school.  We will re-fill throughout the day.

Thank you to all that attend back to school night.  As I said that evening, any time that you may have a question or concern please reach out to me.  

Reminders:
-Children should wear sneakers everyday to school.
