Lavender Room News:

In the month of May we will be welcoming Adrian to our classroom, we are excited to get to know him and watch him grow along with our other friends in the lavender room!

Throughout the month of May we will be reading lots of different books about happiness and shapes! We will also be creating more crafts that are related to spring throughout this month to hang in our room. As the weather keeps warming up we will be enjoying it by going outside as much as possible to do fun activities, such as going for walks and playing with bubbles! Please make sure your child has sunscreen to keep at daycare, so we are able to go outside during the day.

As always we are taking all precautions that we can to keep everyone safe and healthy, if you have any questions or concerns feel free to let us know! Thank you!

Purple Room News:

Last month in the purple room we spent time talking about animals! Throughout the month we had fun teaching the children about animal sounds and reading stories like “Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree”.

In the month of May, we will be focusing on strengthening the children’s sign language skills! Throughout the day we will be incorporating signs into our everyday activities. The signs we will focus on this month are “all done”, “more”, “please”, and “milk”.

If you still haven’t got the chance to bring in sunscreen for the summer, please do so ASAP so we can enjoy the beautiful upcoming weather!

Thank you all for another great month! If you ever have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Blue Room News:

Last month in The Blue Room, we focused on the colors purple, pink, and yellow. As I said last month, the children are getting really good at identifying their colors, so this is something we will continue to work on in the upcoming months. We also celebrated Easter! We did a lot of fun art projects and read a lot of books related to Easter. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will focus on social and emotional skills. This is something very important to practice as we have more and more younger kids. We also focus on the colors orange and red and do some Mother’s Day art. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

As always, if you have any questions, let us know!

Stay safe and healthy!

Thanks!

Rainbow Room News:

In the month of May, we will be learning about plants and insects. We will be getting dirty in our plant unit. If your child doesn’t like to have their clothes dirty, please bring a clean shirt for them (lots of playing in the dirt and planting). Our social skills topic will focus on diversity this month.

As part of learning about diversity, we will be learning sign language. Some of the things we have already learned are daily words like: May I be excused, milk, please, more, yes, no and good morning. This month will be family words and animals.
