Blue Birds June News

Orange Preschool

Look what we’ve learned!

In the month of May, the Blue Birds have learned how special our mommies are. We also learned about insects and creepy crawlies and colors. As a group, we discussed how important our mommies are and how they are our number one person in our life. We also spoke about all the different insects there are, how spiders feed themselves, and how their webs are their home. The Blue Birds had a lot of fun learning their colors, by playing the I spy game. We practiced our tracing and writing, and continued reviewing our Zoo Phonic letters Kk-Rr. 

 

What we will learn in the month of June…

For the month of June, the Blue Birds will be celebrating all about our Dads and
they will be making Father's Day gifts. It will be a fun surprise!! Together as a class, we will make a friendship fruit salad for Fun Food Week. We will also be making other fun foods such as cookies, Kool-aid, and pudding. Our Blue Birds will also be learning all about music and movement and instruments.

For the week of Fun Food Week, we will making a friendship fruit salad. We will need every child to bring in 1 piece of fruit by Wednesday, June 6th.

If you have any kid friendly magazines and you are done viewing them and they are in need of a new home, I'll take them! 🙂 The kids use old magazines to cut and practice their scissors skills.

Please help me help your child by speaking to them at home about no superhero play at school.

Summer is almost here!! If you would like sunscreen applied to your child, please bring a bottle for your child. Please do not leave it in your child's bag or cubby. Please hand it to a teacher with your child's name on it. You must apply sunblock on your child in the morning, and we will reapply in the afternoon.

Every Friday is Share Day! Each child may bring one toy to share with the class. Please no valuables. They love participating in share day.

Please always remember to bring a crib size fitted sheet and a small blanket in a backpack every Monday. Your child's cubby is for extra-clothes and important papers, there is NOT enough room for their blankets as well.

Please provide a spoon and ice pack in lunch boxes.

Dates to Remember

June 24th – Summer program begins

We are excited to offer our special summer camp program to you once again!  There will be all kinds of special visitors and activities like: The Lizard Wizard, The Santa Ana Zoo Mobile, water play days, special arts & crafts, science & sensory activities and much more! Our summer program begins June 24th and continues until August 30th.  Calendars will be coming home soon!

We sure hope your child will be spending some time with us this summer.  Your child has worked so hard and learned so much this year.  You may want to consider reducing your child’s schedule to the minimum 2 ½ days per week instead of leaving for the summer.  Another option is to have your child participate for a portion of the summer.  Even a few extra weeks can make a difference.  Give them the benefit of school enrichment AND some great summer fun!
