March Classroom News
We began the month by celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday. We read lots of his stories and made our own Thing 1 and Thing 2 hats. We celebrated Teddy Bear day by bringing in our own bears for a picnic in school. We played with them, measured them and danced with them. We will make Irish Soda bread in class to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. After that we will begin to get ready for Easter. We will be creating some fun Easter decorations. We are beginning to write by tracing lines, curves and zig-zags. We are also practicing using scissors by cutting out shapes. We are all growing and learning so much from our school friends and through our teachers and stories.
March is also National Reading month. Each student brought home a calendar to keep track of how many days someone will read to them. Reading every day to your child is the most important step in early Literacy! The children will bring back their calendars at the end of the month and we will have a Reading celebration. We will also be having guest readers from the parish and our school, coming into the classrooms to read to the children. Watch the parent board for details! March is a busy month!
