Bluebird February Newsletter
Parents, we welcome you to come on 1st and 2nd February for ‘Bring a Parent to School Day’. Any one parent can come on each day. You can sign up on the sheet that’s on the notice board outside the classroom. At this time of the year you are going to observe challenging and amazing work that your child does.
We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, February 14th in our classroom. Have your child wear something that’s red (if not, then pink or even white!) that he/she has— no need to buy. There will be a sign-up sheet for the things to bring for our Valentines’ Day celebration. And each child can bring valentines to pass out. There are 21 children in the class., so please bring that many. To make the distribution smooth and independent, the valentines should have only your child’s name and not the recipient’s. Treats can come also—please don’t bring food items, but rather, pencils, erasers, stickers, beads, etc.
On February 16, I will host the Material Morning at 8 am in the gym; the topic is “Writing Preparation”. I will be talking about the materials that prepare children for beautiful writing, and demonstrating how it happens. Within the Montessori classroom, there are numerous activities in the practical life, art and sensorial areas as well as language that foster the development of the strength, the skills and the characteristics that make beautiful writing a discovery and a joyful experience. So please come to see and to manipulate some of the materials together. These are practices you can take home!
Parents, again friendly reminders:
