Wow, did July fly right on by, or did it just feel that way to us?! With the weather being terribly hot, we haven’t had much time to explore our beautiful outdoor spaces. However, our sensory garden is in full bloom, so the infants have the opportunity to explore the different textures and smells outside when we go to the garden. When the rainy days do make an appearance, we watch the rain fall, and the teachers talk about what the weather is doing outside and what that “sometimes scary sound” of thunder is.
In August, we will be focusing on and adding to our lesson plan the colors that fall brings (since it's right around the corner)—red, brown, and orange. As the leaves start to fall in later months, we will be collecting them to make a rather large fall collage. Be on the lookout for it displayed in the classroom!
Speaking of lesson plans, have you taken a look at what we have planned each week? Each day we have an array of engaging, growth-oriented, and purposeful activities planned. If you have any ideas that you would like to share or if your child likes doing a specific activity at home, please feel free to let me know, and we’ll see how we can incorporate it into our lesson plans.
A huge “Thank you” to all of our wonderful and engaging parents! We appreciate you!
With love and hugs,
Ms. Michelle, Ms. Stephanie, and Ms.Hayden
