Happy New Year, 2019!

Dear Yellow Duck Families,

We hope your Christmas was a wonderful one!   We are looking forward to seeing you on Thursday, Jan 3, 2019. 
 Our month will start learning all about the letter J, and fun activities that go along with it.  Josh Jester is our new letter puppet friend, and he loves Jokes!  If you would like to, you can teach your child a joke to tell us on Thursday or Friday!  We will estimate how many jelly beans are in a jar, and learn how to juice oranges with hand juicers.

     Winter and Hibernation will be our next unit.  Our loft will turn into a cave on Monday Jan 7th.  On that day your child may bring in a stuffed animal that would hibernate. (snakes, turtles, bats, squirrels, chipmunks, groundhogs, raccoons, skunks, bears, lizards...)    

Martin Luther King, Jr .was a good man who believed we are all beautiful, important people!  We will do an egg experiment to see if all eggs are the same inside, even though the outside can be a different color.  

Later in the month we will learn all about Penguins, where they live, what they eat, and how they move and have babies.  

Finally we will end our month with our exciting unit about Space!  Our classroom will be transformed into outer space, with planets, stars and a space ship that we can ride in!!  On Jan 30th we will visit the Planetarium on Franklin Street and see a show. Let me know if you would like to chaperone….we will need at least 5 parent chaperones to go with us. (we will not be able to accommodate siblings though…thank you for understanding) 

Looking forward to lots of fun in January! Be sure to check out or Classroom Calendar for important dates, holidays, Star of the Week, birthdays, themes, letter puppets and snack child.

Mrs. Walton and Ms. Sue
