Our students are making headlines, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout outs. Please check in often and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Language News

The Ladybugs continue to explore the sounds of the letter "a". This activity will enhance visual development and letter identification.

Culture News

The children recently celebrated Veterans Day. The children learned that Veterans Day is a day set aside to help us remember the anniversary of the end of World War I. Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in our armed services. We call these men and women veterans. We celebrate Veterans Day each year, and we thank all our veterans for serving and making our country free, peaceful, and strong.

Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break is on Thursday, November 28 and on Friday, November 29. School resumes on Monday, December 2. Have a safe and enjoyable break!

Math News

Our butterflies have been working hard on new math concepts. Recently, they learned to match quantity to a symbol. The children used the sandpaper numbers to trace and reinforced pencil grip. The children also used spooky eyeballs to match the quantity to the number. Using manipulatives allows for a concrete understanding of the differences in quantity. A great foundation for later math concepts such as the sequential counting with the one hundred board. Keep up the great work, butterflies!

Differences of Quantity

Recently, our Butterflies worked on the number rods and spindle box. The number rods and the spindle box are a great way for the child to gain a concrete understanding of the differences of quantity. This foundation will serve them in every math activity they attempt moving forward!

Science News

Butterflies have been busy in science learning the importance of recycling. They also learned how to categorize plastic, compost, cardboard, and aluminum. We are so proud of your hard work!

Language Absorption

Language absorption research shows that the amount and variety of language that children have exposure to directly links to their early language development. Regular reading time and lots of conversations are very helpful. This gives us another good reason to read to our children!

Show and Tell

Did you know the purpose of show and tell is to develop presentation skills, practice preparing for a project, and early development of public speaking skills? We would like to thank our parents for helping our students prepare for their show and tell activities.
