Lavender Room News:

We had two friends move to the Purple room last month, Cecilia and Livia.  Lavender room misses them both but we are excited to see how much fun they are having in Purple. This month we won’t be welcoming any new friends into the

Lavender room (crazy, right?) but we will be seeing a lot of new faces this summer!

As the weather is warming up, remember to bring in some summer clothes in case of any emergency outfit changes during the day. We love our big windows in the classroom but in the summer, it can get warm in the room.

Little Stars will be closed Monday the 27th for Memorial Day. Fingers crossed the weather will be nice and we will be able to enjoy some family time outside over the long weekend!

If you have any questions feel free to ask me or any of the Lavender Room staff!

Purple Room News:

Last month we transitioned Mahnoor, Gia  and Isabella to the blue room. They are doing very well with their new friends and teachers as they learn new things and develop new ways throughout the year in the Blue Room. Lavender Room also transitioned two of their girls, Livia and Cecilia. They both are doing awesome and really enjoy the new changes of the room.

May is here! We are definitely going to make sure we get some fresh air out in our little play area as well as going on walks in our buggies. If it seems to be raining or bad weather, we will be playing more in the muscle room. So far, the days seem to be warm enough to make it outside in the afternoons. Thanks for everyone that brought in sunscreen. The days are going to get hotter and it’s good to keep the kids protected from the hot sun.

Also, just a reminder to make sure the kids have at least two or three extra pairs of clothes kept in their cubbies. Sometimes one isn’t enough especially if they have lots of messy diapers.

This month we will be doing some Mother’s Day gifts for you lovely mom’s as well as other art projects throughout the month.

We hope this month is a lot of fun and we wish all the mom’s a HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Green Room News:

The Green Room friends spent April working on their colors, shapes, and numbers.  Some of the children’s favorite activities included playing with rhythm sticks, making a number caterpillar, dropping bath tabs in water, and playing with shape sensory bags.  Of course, they also had a blast celebrating Easter!

For May, our theme will be “The Alphabet in Nature.”  We will be working on letter identification, while exploring the natural world around us.  It should be an exciting month!

Also this month, Ms. Rosemary will be going back to part time, and Miss Kerrigan will be taking on the full-time co-teacher position.  We are looking forward to having her in the classroom more frequently.

Have a great month!

Yellow Room News:

Last month in The Yellow Room, we did units on zoo animals, birds, and insects. We also celebrated both Easter and the start of spring! Some of our activities included reading Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann, singing our “Owl In The Tree” Song, coloring spiders, doing a jelly bean counting activity, painting butterflies for our spring bulletin board, and more. We also welcomed Jaxon from The Green Room. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will be doing units on circus animals, puppies, transportation, and more. It looks to be a fun and exciting month!

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

Orange Room News:

Last month we spent a lot of time outside jumping in rain puddles, playing at the park, and going on long walks to the “waterfall”! We learned about flowers, bunnies, and did Easter activities. Thank you once again to all of the parents that were able and willing to take time out of their day to come spend time with the kids at our picnic, they had tons of fun!

In May we will be doing Mother’s Day arts and crafts, and a Disney theme! When we start our Disney theme I will be asking every kid to bring in their favorite Disney book to read, so please

label it so it does not get misplaced. This month we will also plant flowers to learn about taking care of plants and what they need to live!

This month we say goodbye to Hazel, she will be going into the Red Room, and we are welcoming in Ethan and Coraline! We are all very excited to play with you! As it starts to get hot out, please make sure to bring in sunscreen, if I do not put a note on your cubby then you still have

extra from last year that is not expired! Also, please make sure to have 2 outfits of extra clothes and trade out the winter clothes for summer clothes. I am also asking that you bring in a sippy

cup/water bottle to leave at LS so the kids are able to bring them outside with them and get a drink whenever needed, I will keep them washed!

Starting May 13th Miss Bethany will be leaving us for the Purple Room (lucky them), and Miss Kenzie will be full time with us, all of the kids know and love her very much, we are super excited!

Conferences will be the week of May 20-24, I will put out a sign-up sheet soon!
