Welcome to September! A lot of important dates for this month so we will keep the dates posted on our blog as well as attached to our family wall for references. This week will be working on our Social and Emotional: Self-Talk. Self-talk is talking to yourself in a quiet voice or inside your head and helps you focus and pay attention. We will also be introducing Clifford Curriculum and our first week is all about "Let's Start School!" We will also be going over the letter "s" colors; green, orange and red, and shapes; rectangle and diamond.
On Friday we will be celebrating Mother Mary's Birthday and we will provide a special snack for this quiet celebration. On Wednesday our class will be taking our school pictures, if you are wanting your child to be changed into a different outfit afterwards just refer to us and we will make sure to take care of that. Please check your child's box daily as we use it as a resource to keep our families up to date of what's going on in the classroom, our family folders, and any other important information.
Please check on your child's extra clothes to see if anything needs to be replaced or added, and to make sure all items have your child's name on them.
Thank you always for all that you do! We have enjoyed our first month and looking forward to what September has to offer! As always, please feel free to come to any of us with any questions or concerns.

Now that we have finished up our second week the children are really getting our routine down in the classroom as well as remembering our classroom rules. We have as a classroom been working on Social and Emotional curriculum and learning how to listen in a group with "eyes are watching" "ears are listening" "voices quiet" and "body calm" We are also learning that our emotions are important and even more important to use our words.
