Pixies Newsletter East: February 2014

Special Days in February:  February 14th – Sweets with your Sweetie, February 17th -Academy closed for staff training and in observance of Presidents’ Day.


January Recap – January went by so quickly this year, it’s hard to believe it’s over already! We had a great month focusing on literacy. Everyone seems to love the book Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. We also enjoyed sensory activities. Everyone enjoyed playing with water and snow in the sensory table. We are looking forward to another exciting month in the Pixies room.


Coming in February – The weather has been cold so we will focus on inside gross motor activities. We know young children need the opportunities to move and explore, and we hope to provide them with many great activities that will be beneficial to their development, as well as a fun way to keep them moving and help them use their energy in a positive way. Some of the things to look forward to will be tunnel play, a free standing slide we will bring in, walking, jumping, and climbing on the large blocks.

We will also be working on fine motor skills. We hope to help children learn to use spoons to feed themselves. We will also be using paint brushes instead of just fingers.

We will be welcoming Oliver from the Sprites room and a new friend Tommy to the Pixies room this month.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please let us know! As always, thank you for sharing your children with us!
