2AG: 3-year-olds T/Th mornings
Our year has started off very well! The children are adjusting to new routines and our schedule very smoothly. Our October theme for the first week is Trees and Leaves and the second weekly theme will be Squirrels and Nuts. Please refer to the monthly calendar for the rest of our themes for October, and each month thereafter. Look forward to new art projects coming home to celebrate the Fall season! Please refer pl
Classroom Field Trips: On November 8th, our class will be going on a train ride with Cal Train and to the park for a snack afterwards. More information will be sent home as the date gets closer. Parents come with their children on this adventurous field trip.
Sharing: We have in class sharing Thursday of every week. Usually sharing is not based on our weekly themes, but rather the children choose their own sharing each week based on their own interests. Each child brings his/her sharing to class in a bag and they will talk about their sharing during the large circle time. This helps children to develop language skills as they describe what they are sharing, and it builds confidence as well.
Classroom Snacks: Our classroom snack time is at 10:00 am and we all sit together outside at the lunch tables. Children help themselves and build their skills by pouring their own water and they make a choice of what they would like to eat. Most snacks we provide are fruits, veggies, crackers and cheeses. We are aware of all allergies in this class, so we will not serve any foods that any children have allergies to. Some parents provide a special snack for their children that we will serve to them if they have severe allergies or a personal food preference. When a child has a birthday, the parents will provide a pre-approved birthday snack for the whole class to share about 1 week in advance. This way, we can read the labels to make sure we don't serve certain foods to children with food allergies. You may provide a special birthday snack for your child if you do not want your child to eat the birthday snacks available. This helps your child to feel included in our wonderful birthday celebrations!
