Weekly Curriculum and Newsletter for Week of August 18th 2014


Sharing is on Fridays:  Please have your child bring something with the letter of the week.  This will help him/her and his/her friends' recognition of the letter they have learned.

Thank you for sharing your sweet child with us.


Get involved in the classroom!  We invite you to sign up to make playdough, and to come in to share your family's culture.  You might like to read a book with the children or bring items to share from your family's traditions.  We also have the Star of the Week program in the fours.  When a child is Star of the Week, the parents may come into the classroom to help the child talk about his/her picture collage, read books, do a special project with the children, and/or share their family culture or hobbies.


Sharing: Every Friday, the children bring something for sharing according to the letter of the week for show and tell. Each child talks about what they brought for sharing in their small groups. Your child's sharing may be anything they are interested in sharing and/or according to our weekly classroom theme or letter of the week.

Birthdays:   Birthdays are a special day for each child in our class.  If you have something that you would like to share with our class (e.g., reading some of your child’s favorite books or doing special crafts) you are welcome to share these activities during your child's classroom birthday celebration. Please let us know in advance, at least one week before your child's classroom birthday, so we can make proper changes to that day's class schedule.


If you wish to bring a special treat (e.g., fruit or cupcakes), please tell us in advance and show us the ingredients or the label for your special snack.  On your child's birthday day, you can drop off the snack at the drop-off time and come back later at the circle time to read books.   We have “open snack” in our class from 9:15-10am. 

Our classmates have the following food allergies:

  • Peanuts, tree nuts
  • Mango & strawberries
  • Some Food Coloring (red dye included)
  • Dairy
  • Wheat & gluten
  • Eggs
  • Shellfish

 For those children whose birthdays are in the summer, if you wish, you can choose the date during the school year on which you want to celebrate it.  If not, we will celebrate all the summer birthdays in April or May.


CONTACT US:  Do you have something to let us know about your child? Please call or send us email. We'd love to hear from you! (650) 968-5957 x104 OR via e-mail at montecitogreenroom3AG@gmail.com.
