Ms Keely’s Class—Toddler 2
We had a very busy and exciting month of November in Toddler 2!
We received several new toys in our classroom, including a climber, a baby bed, dress up clothes, sensory tubes, a plane, train, and helicopter set, as well as new bean bags for our reading center. Along with our new toys we also welcomed our newest addition, Ms. Courtney, in our classroom this month. Ms. Courtney will be joining Ms. Keely and Ms. Jessica as a Float in Toddler 2.
Also in November, we got to see many familiar faces join us in our classroom for our Thanksgiving luncheon and our Apple Pie Party. Thank you all so much for taking your time to come celebrate Thanksgiving with us!
We have lots of fun things planned for December, and several events that families will be invited to attend, including a Christmas program. We have already begun working on our songs to sing and look forward to also seeing Santa Claus there.
The first week of December we will be focusing on snow and ice. We will be enjoying some art projects such as Snow Puff Paint and Ice Painting. We will have ice in the sensory table to explore how cold snow and ice are. We will also be discussing different articles of clothing that we wear to keep us warm in the winter, such as a coat, hat, scarves, and mittens.
We will continue playing outside during cold weather so that we can learn about the new season upon us, so please be sure to continue to send your child with a heavy winter coat, hat, scarf, and gloves or mittens to keep him or her warm.
The second and third week of December we turn our focus to Christmas fun. We will enjoy art activities such as creating an ornament, decorating a stocking, and making a special gift for parents. We will spend a lot of time during these weeks preparing for our Christmas program, and we hope to see you all there. If your child is going to be absent any days during this holiday season to spend time with family or to travel, please let Ms. Keely or Ms. Maria know. Thank you!
