Lavender Room News:

During the Month of August we will be saying goodbye to Leo and Jaxson as they are moving into their new classroom! We will miss them in our room, but we are very excited to watch them grow and enjoy the purple room!

Throughout this month we will be creating some fun crafts of different foods to decorate our room! We will also be reading black and white books, as well as books involving food.  During tummy time for our infants, we will be utilizing our sensory tubes and other stimulating toys!

As always we are taking all precautions that we can to keep everyone safe and healthy!  Just a reminder that only staff are allowed to care for and come in contact with our little friends in the Lavender Room. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!

This month, we will do a unit on body parts. We will do art projects, sing songs, and read stories related to this theme. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

Green Room News:

Last week, we finished our “Summer Destinations” unit with a pretend trip to the library.  As you might have guessed, we did plenty of reading and letter identification.  Some of the children’s favorite activities included playing with giant letters, painting while listening to a story on tape, and matching letters on the easel.  These kiddos love to read, so we hope your toddler get a chance to cuddle up together with a good book at home.

That final lesson of July provided the perfect springboard into August’s “Favorite Books” unit.  We begin with a true toddler classic, The Wheels on the Bus.  Our planned projects include searching for buses, making a friendship bus collage, and pretending to drive the bus.  We will also be keeping track of all the buses we see outside.  This should be a fun week!
