Weekly News:

After a Valentine’s interlude, we got back into our “In Our Community” unit with a focus on buses.  The children had fun watching for buses to drive by, making a bus collage, and singing “The Wheels on the Bus.”  On Thursday, we had an especially exciting walk around the block.  First of all, it was actually warm enough to go outside.  That was exciting in and of itself, but it got better.  We saw a mail truck, a purple bus, and a yellow bus.  We saw two doggies.  And we saw bunnies!!!!  One of the neighbors has pet rabbits that practically hopped right out to us!  That made it pretty much the best walk ever.  (Except for one of our friends who was terrified of the bunnies.)

  This week we wrap up February’s community unit with a focus on flags, stars, and the colors red, white, and blue.  We look forward to marching with flags, making a flag collage, and working on shape and color recognition.  We hope to get plenty of outside time, too.
