Family Child Care Home 3 - Owasso

Hello, Parents! We have had SO MUCH FUN exploring outdoors in the mud as well as the water! Kids are naturally drawn to playing outside, and there are numerous benefits of outdoor play: it allows them to explore their environment, develop muscle strength and coordination, and gain self-confidence. Playing actively outdoors also increases flexibility, fine and gross motor skills, and is related to the development of a wide variety of physical skills. As always, we encourage parents to stop by and engage with their child in an activity or book reading. Visitors are always welcome! Ms. Tippy and Ms. Carly

Family Child Care Home 2 - Owasso

July came and went very fast! As you have noticed, we have new friends that have joined our classroom. We are very happy to have a FULL class. Because we do have younger children, we are still trying to adjust to their individual schedules. Because of this, we will split the class in half most of the day so that we are still able to follow through with our lesson plans. We had so much fun with our Mud and Water Day! Thank you to everyone who came to play with us! We’re having so much fun continuing to explore outdoors as much as possible in the mornings. We will also try to squeeze more water play in the evenings for at least 15 minutes so they are able to cool down and shake their wiggles o

Ms Ada's Class - Preschool

As the end of summer break comes upon us, our theme this month is “Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come”! Some of the stories we will be reading are: Welcome to Kindergarten by Anne Rockwell, The Night Before Kindergarten by Natasha Wings, Look Out Kindergarten, Here I Come by Nancy Carlson, and Off to Kindergarten by Tony Johnston. We will be working on some basic rules: 1) We use kind words, 2) Our hands stay on our own body, and 3) Our feet walk inside and run outside. Some of the activities that we will be doing are chalk and water art, painting, counting, sorting, and the game “Whose Shoes”. The Pre K class will also be welcoming Ms. Teresa who will lead the classroom during the next phas

Ms Teresa & Ms Allison's Class - Early Preschool 2

For the month of August, we will be learning all about ourselves and how each one of us are different. We will involve the families in an activity so each child can share their families with their peers. We will also be discussing the five senses, and how each one of us perceive tasting, smelling, and hearing differently. Some of the children may taste something that will seem sweet to them but sour to another child. I cannot wait to share their sour faces with you all, so be looking for your child’s picture. We are ready to have a month full of different textures, smells, and sounds. Thank you always for all that you do and for letting us be a part of your child’s life. You can find referen

Ms Bailee's Class - Early Preschool 1

Science - Standard One: Science Process Inquiry - The child will investigate and experiment with objects to discover information. Science - Standard Two: Life - The child will observe and investigate plants and animals. Beginning in August, we will be looking at animals and fruits. With our main focus being on plants and animals, we will use some items to our advantage. To cover plants, we will talk about where fruits come from - for example, orange trees, berry bushes, and more. We will be using different kinds of fruits and vegetables to taste and paint with, along with other activities. To cover animals, we will talk about what animals eat the same food as us, where they come from, who th

Ms Amanda & Ms Kim's Class - Toddler C

We all have seen or experienced first-hand a toddler having a tantrum in the middle of the store. While it could be simply an upset child not getting their way, it also could just be a frustrated child trying to convey a need with no means to do so. However, if that child had some way to convey an idea of what their need or want is, think of how much that could help them and you. So, for the month of August, we will be focusing on language and communication skill building. To build and enhance these skills, we will be focusing on sign language. Knowing and utilizing sign language has many benefits besides just the major ability to communicate for nonverbal children. Sign language does not on

Ms Krisinda & Ms Arika's Class - Toddler B

Hello, Toddler B Parents! Our ELG (Early Learning Guideline) for the month of August is Self and Social Awareness. Standard 1 will be our focus: The child will participate in play and activities that will help him/her learn about self and others while gaining an understanding of how individual roles make up the community. It is important for toddlers to begin to be aware and learn to be respectful of each other’s unique characteristics, abilities, and talents. If you haven’t sent in (or emailed) updated photos of your child with family members, please do so. We will be using them this month. Thank you, Ms. Krisinda and Ms Arika

Ms Jenny & Ms Nikki's Class - Toddler A

Happy August, TA Families! We welcome back Ms. Nikki from CDA class and thank Ms. Liz for helping us while Ms. Nikki was away. This month is going to be all about dinosaurs and developing a sense of quantity. We will also enhance our counting skills and learn about sizes and shapes. For the month of July we learned about the individual colors of the rainbow, and we are going to be able to apply that to our knowledge of the characteristics of dinosaurs. We will roar, stomp, sing, and read all about the original thunder lizards. I would also like to incorporate more sign language to our everyday skill-set activities and encourage our precious families to use our signs at home. Thank you! Ms. J

Ms Ashley & Ms Gabi's Class - Infants

For the month of July, we worked on more physical development with the children and also more on communication. The infants have come a long way in their learning! For the month of August, we will focus on the ELG of Social and Personal Skills. We will focus on Standard 1: Continue to develop social interaction skills and begin to show independence while maintaining strong attachments with caregivers. With this objective we will focus on engaging in parallel play with the other children in the classroom and children that are not in our classroom. We will ask the new children’s parents to bring family photos so that they can be displayed around the classroom. We will work more on sign languag

Letter from the Director!

Dear Parents, This upcoming month is full of transitions. Our older children may be going back to school; our younger children may have new friends in class. We as adults may be adjusting to the end of the summer schedules for our families. During times of transitions, communication is key. Take time to reflect: how does your family stay in touch? How often do you communicate? How does your family invite the children to participate and express their thoughts to everyone? Best practices for child development do include communication to and with children. Children, even as they are working on pronunciation, are eager to participate in community with other people. We will be involving our child
