Pixies Newsletter East: March 2012

February Recap

 We had a fun month filled with gross motor exploration and development. The Pixies also enjoyed some Valentine’s festivities with Sweets With Your Sweetie. Thank you for your participation and for the Valentines and snacks for the children!

Coming in March

This month we will be having a special celebration in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. This will take place Feb. 27-March 2. On the 1st Wear stripes on the 2nd its crazy socks day and Cat in the Hat ice cream  day. Some special activities we can look forward to this week will be various read aloud from guest readers, as well as Dr. Seuss related arts and crafts. We hope this will be a fun week for everyone!

 Also, in March we will begin talking about the signs of spring. As we get to spend more time outdoors, we will also take nature walks and talk about the things we notice, such as the sounds of birds chirping and buds on trees and flowers. This will also be a great way to incorporate colors, and animals into the children’s vocabulary. This will be a helpful skill for young children to be exposed to color identification, as well as the names of animals and the sounds they make. We look forward to a great month with your children!
