Recap of April:  April has had some nice weather and we are getting outside more often. If your child doesn’t have any sunscreen at school and you would like us to use it on your child please bring it. Also as the weather warms we may need different extra clothing. Please check your child’s cubby.

Coming in May: This month we will be exploring more sensory activities both indoors and out. As the weather begins to warm we will have water and sand play outside. We will also provide sensory experiences for children with food and textures, such as noodles, jell-o and pudding, shredded paper, fabric and more. The different types of sensory activities allow for the use of senses, such as, taste, smell, touch. They also allow for fine motor development as children refine the use of fingers, wrists and tongue.  We look forward to introducing new books that have the “touch and feel” components. The Pixies really enjoy these types of books, and it will be a great way to incorporate literacy and sensory experiences.

As always, thank you for sharing your children with us!

Mrs. Bunny, Ms. Nicole, & Mrs. Ming
