February Fun!

.  So far we have had a fun and busy February!  Getting together with our Butterfly friends to learn about winter, and the animals that hibernate or just sleep through the winter, was so much fun! We even made bird feeders together to hang on the trees before a snowy weekend to feed the birds.  We did "freeze" apple juice for snack and had fun playing "freeze" dancing!!!!

.  After our winter unit, we began to read books about love, caring and sharing for Valentine's Day.  We stamped hearts and made collages. Always practicing our creativity, cutting with scissors and boy do we like to pour out glue!!!!  

.  We are now doing a unit on transportation.  We have read many books about trains, busses, tractors, tug boats and trucks.  After reading Things That Go, we made shape vehicles and shared them at Meeting for sharing last Friday.  They are also hanging up in the Bumble Bee Room!  They are very good and the children are so proud of them.  We are building vehicles out of legos, and will be trying to build a bridge next week.  

.  Conferences are coming up early in March.  Sign-up sheets will be on the door Monday.  Conferences are March 7th and 8th.  There is no school for the children on those days.  I look forward to talking to you all!

.  I am also looking forward to spring!  It has been so cold and rainy! We can't wait to be able to go outside for longer play time soon.  It has been brutally cold, so we stay out for 10 minutes or so and run back in!  Please continue to send boots.....it will be muddy for quite awhile!

In friendship,

Sandy
