3 PAGE 3 TEACHER TALKS Welcome 2013 we wish everyone a very happy and healthy new year! We will begin the month of January slowly, as it will take us a few days to get back into our school routines. We will play a few favorite games and take out some new ones, along with some bigger floor puzzles. Our main focus this month will be winter birds. We will learn about birds that live through the winter months and we ll talk about why some birds stay in colder climates, while others move to warmer weather. Our new big word in class will be migration. We will research several local birds and we hope to see some of those very same birds flying in the sky at Torbank. Each child will create a large winter bird project which will require a lot of painting, so let us know if you would like to come in to lend a hand once we get started. We will also be involved with snow snowmen, snowflakes, and hopefully, we ll be able to bring some snow into the classroom. This will lead to discussions of water in the form of ice, snow, mist, etc. and may lead to a few exciting scientific experiments, too! Our work with upper and lower case letters will become a greater focus in the next few weeks. We have many fun games to play as a whole class, with a small group and individually to help us build on this skill. Please remember to dress your child appropriately for the winter weather. When there is snow on the ground, please have your child come to school with both snow boots and regular shoes for the classroom. We hope to spend lots of time playing outside in the snow! Elissa, Gael and Sarah Happy New Year! We started January talking about the new year We will learn about the calendar, the months, days of the week, etc. We will talk about the season, winter the cold and how we stay warm, the animals and how they stay warm. We will read and tell the story of The Mitten. It is a wonderful story about animals finding a lost mitten and getting inside to stay warm. We will make our own mittens with the animals inside. We will practice sewing, cutting and coloring. January is also our space month. We will learn about the planets in our solar systems. We will make alien space helmets and wear them on our trip to outer space in our rocket. Miss Cathy, Miss Mary and Miss Daria As we wind down from a very busy holiday season, we will have a little down time to re-focus on fundamentals. Can you imagine a month without a holiday to prepare for? In January, we will do several winter themed art projects, incorporating colors and shapes. In addition, we plan to make bird feeders out of pinecones for our winter friends. We will also have color weeks, during this time each week we will learn about a color. The children will wear something that has the color of the week on it, and we will have snacks that color (Schedule to follow) We will have fun learning our colors. We will start to learn new songs and Nursery Rhymes this month. We will continue to go outside to play, so please remember to pack hats and mittens. Please do not send in snowsuits, and gloves, as they take too long to pun on. We wish you all a happy and healthy 2013! Miss Suzanne and Miss Amanda

4 PAGE 4 TEACHER TALKS February is here, and that only means one thing Valentine s Day! We will be doing lots of projects with hearts we ll practice our cutting skills, make heart mobiles, and learn how to write using a rebus (pictures in place of words). We will also learn about our hearts and how they work in our bodies. We will talk about friendships and families and about the reasons we love one another. The children will make and send Valentine cards using the US Postal Service, so we will talk about how the post office works and how a letter gets to our homes. We will set up a working post office in the classroom, which is always a fun experience. This activity will also lend itself to learning our addresses and to lots of writing practice. Our Valentine s Day celebration will take place in the classroom on February 14th. The children can bring in Valentine cards to distribute, as we will be making special holders in which to collect them. After Valentine s Day, our main focus will be dinosaurs. We ll create a three dimensional dinosaur world after learning how their world was different from our world today. There will be many different dinosaurs to play with in the sand table and we ll incorporate dinosaurs into other areas of learning, as well. We will begin our first round of SHOW & TELL this month. You will receive a schedule and instructions shortly. This is a fun activity for the children and a great opportunity for us to learn new things about each other. Finally, we will have a chance to learn about dental health from a real dentist Dr. Steve (my dad) will stop by for a visit. As always, please let us know if you d like to spend a morning with us! Elissa, Gael and Sarah February is the month of love. We will sing songs of love and talk about families and all the people we love. We will make many crafts for Valentines Day and of course have a Valentines Day party. We will also talk about sending mail and start learning our home addresses. Thanks for sending in all the recycle items and for all your support. Miss Cathy, Miss Mary and Miss Daria February is a short, but busy month. For Ground Hog day, we will make a paper bag puppet of a ground hog and hope he brings us an early spring. We will continue with our colors and shapes, with hearts being the shape of the month and a focus on red, pink and purple. For our Valentine s Day project, we will make a cardholder for the cards the children will receive from classmates. Finally, we will make a beautiful heart sun catcher and kissing fish out of all hearts. Our Valentine s Day party will be held on Wednesday February 13th and Thursday February 14th. Please send in a Valentine card for each child in your child s class, signed with your child s name, but not addressed to any specific child. We will then help them mail the cards by walking around and putting one in each cardholder. Hopefully, the weather will continue to cooperate so we can go outdoors. In any event, please continue to send the children to school with hats and mittens.
