July Newsletter





Summer Fun!  is the theme for July.  With the temperature heating up, we will find creative, fun ways to enjoy our summer.  As a group, the children will make homemade ice cream.  I am also planning a backyard picnic and some sun inspired art projects.

Our readings will include “Summer Days and Nights” by Wong Herbert Yee, “Flip Flop” by Dana Rau and “Mouse’s First Summer” by Lauren Thompson.  We will add these titles (and many more) to our ever-growing "100 Books of Summer" reading list!  
 
Important Dates: 
Wednesday, 07/03/19 – Happy 5th Birthday Logan! 
Thursday , 07/04/19 – Happy Independence Day!

June Newsletter


 

Good Manners – is the theme for June.  This month we will practice taking turns, sharing and using kind words.  (And since some of our older “graduated” friends will return for their summer vacation, what a nice way to greet them!)  We will practice what we learn at an afternoon tea party!  
Our readings will include "No, David!" by David Shannon, "Excuse Me" by Karen Katz and "My Manners Matter" by Pat Thomas.

Speaking of books….

June is also the start of our annual “100 Books of Summer” Reading Program.  I will keep a list of the books we’ve read near the front door so everyone can see our progress.  Once we reach 100 books, I will reward the children with a party and much-deserved prizes!

Important Dates:
Sunday, 06/16/19 - Happy Father's Day!

And we have been invited to visit my neighbor’s chicken coop!  As a group, we will make farm-fresh butter to enjoy.  Our art projects and books will be focused on farm animals, crops and the work that goes into them. 

Our readings will include  "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" by Jenny Tulip, "On the Farm, At the Market" by G. Brian Karas and "Go to Sleep Little Farm" by Mary Lyn Ray.
