We will be involved in many winter activities. The children will be working on fine motor skills and their crafts will show this increased skill. The children will begin learning about shapes. We will concentrate on jumping, balancing and catching to develop our large motor skills. Of course, we'll continue to review colors and counting activities. Check your calendars for special show and tell days for your child.

REMINDER: We are a peanut free/nut free school. The unfortunate reality is that peanuts/nuts can pose a life-threatening risk for people with a severe allergy.
