May 2020

**************************************************************************************************************

As we continue to battle Coronavirus, please keep us posted to any changes in your child’s schedule and/or any concerns you may have.  Thank you everyone for your patience and support during this time.  It is definitely new territory for everyone.  We actively keep our classroom groups to 10 people or less, increase our cleaning and consistency.

As children return to Little Stars we hope to make the transition as easy as possible.  Some of the children returning may be in a new room due to keeping groups of 10 or less.  Please give me as much notice of your return as you can so that I can make arrangements for their return.

Thanks, Rhonda

Bring in sunscreen for your child.  Please bring in lotion and not spay sunscreen.  The spray ruins the floors!

Lavender Room News:

Last month we transitioned Ty and Forest to the Purple Room. We miss them very much but we know they are loving being able to have free reign of the classroom and are enjoying meeting new friends. Next, we welcomed Reese to our classroom in April. We have enjoyed getting to know her so far and are excited to help her grow and learn new things.

This month we will be doing some spring art projects, so if your baby comes home

with colorful feet or hands, that’s why! We will be having some staff leave us and others joining us in the Lavender room this month as well. With our ever-changing world, we are doing our best to keep everyone updated, as well as safe when they are at school. As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or talk to one of the other girls.

I am looking forward to a great month!

Purple Room News:

Its May! It is finally warming up outside and we are all so excited to get outside and play! Sophia transitioned to the blue room last week and we are going to miss her so much! She has grown so much in the purple room and will only continue to grow and learn as she moves on. We welcomed Ty and Forest last week also and they are already learning the routine and growing every day! It is so exciting to see the growth happening so fast. We are also going to be

welcoming Oliva to the purple room this month and can’t wait to have her! This

month we have so many fun activities planned for outside since it is warmer and

we can enjoy the sunshine! We have been going for walks and enjoying being our

little playground every day! We are hoping our friends start coming back soon so

they can all play and grow together! We are excited for another great month If

you have any questions feel free to see me in the morning or send me a message

in the afternoon!

Blue Room News:

Last month in The Blue Room, we celebrated both the start of spring and Easter! Look for art projects around the room that relate to both things. As the weather got nicer, we also spent a lot more time outside. We went out to the playground a lot and went for many walks as well. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

This month, we will focus on our social/emotional skills and we will continue to practice sharing.

Welcome back to all our friends who have returned! We still miss those of you who have not returned yet and we hope everyone will be able to come back soon!

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

Stay safe and healthy! Thanks!

Green Room News:

Throughout April, the Green Room friends enjoyed learning about “The Basics”– numbers, colors, and shapes.  Some of our favorite activities included finding numbers on the houses in our community, playing “What Shape is This,” and using Skittles to turn water a new color.  Of course, we also had plenty of fun celebrating Easter!

    This month’s theme will be “The Alphabet in Nature.”  During this time, we will be learning to identify letters, as well as exploring the natural world around us.  It should be an exciting month.

    Also in May, Miss Hannah will be joining the Green Room as co-teacher with Ms. Rosemary.  As you have probably noticed, Ms. Rosemary is looking forward to having her first child in  July.  Miss Hannah will be lead teacher when Rosemary leaves at the end of June until she returns toward the end of August.  We are glad to welcome Miss Hannah to our classroom!

    Please remember to fill your child’s cubby with weather appropriate extra clothes.  Thanks.

Ms. Rosemary and the Green Room Team.

Yellow Room News:

Last month in The Yellow Room, we did units on zoo animals, insects, and birds. We also celebrated both Easter and the official start of spring. Some of our activities included reading Good Night, Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann, coloring a spider, singing “The Owl In The Tree,” practicing saying “Happy Easter,” painting paper plate umbrellas, and more. It was overall a very fun and successful month!

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

Welcome back to all of our friends who have returned! We still miss those of you who have not returned yet and we hope that everyone will be able to come back soon!

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

Stay healthy! Thanks!
