Pixies Newsletter East: December 2012

We had a busy month in November. We have enjoyed getting to know our new friends, and we thank everyone who participated in the Thanksgiving Feast! It was a great way to get to know our students and families a little better.

This month we will focus on exploring through the arts. We will experience different types of paints, markers, crayons and chalk, as well as work on the performing arts, such as dancing. We will be exposing children to the different senses that come along with the arts, such as the feel and textures of different media, as well as the sounds of beautiful music, and the movement and rhythm of dance. We hope your children enjoy the various experiences we hope to provide.

The performing arts aspect will also relate to the Nutcracker performance on December 13. This performance should be a lot of fun for the whole family, as you will get to see your little ones dancing on stage with their classmates!

We will also continue to work with children on their communication skills. We will do this through the use of sign language and the verbalization of their correlating words. This helps children communicate with others when they do not yet have the verbal words for what they would like to express.

We look forward to a great month in the Pixie’s classroom and thank all of you for your support!
