With warm weather finally here the infants have a lot to look forward to. We will be swimming, taking lots of walks, enjoying the swing at Froggy park etc. We will be learning about vehicles all month. This will include reading books, playing with vehicles, artwork etc. This will involve sensory, literacy, gross motor and fine motor skills.

We will welcome two new friends to our room. We look forward to getting to know Ronin and Brendan and their families. We also say goodbye to Tommy this month. We wish him and his family the best on their new journey at their new home. We will miss you.

Please bring in weather appropriate extra clothes. Also we ask everyone to bring in swim diapers, bathing suits, hats, and a towel.

We sent out a letter asking for parents to bring in 5 pictures of your family for our all about me book. If you have not brought them in yet, please do so. We would like to incorporate our families into our everyday routines.

Thank you so much for your corporation

We will discuss all the important people who make our town awesome and the jobs going on around us every day. Luckily the beautiful weather will give us
the opportunity to see some workers and transportation vehicles nearby. This will help us explore what some community helpers do. We will make our own fireman and police hats as well as craft up some interactive library fun. We will read Who’s Hat Is This? by Kats Cooper, Bernstein Bears; Jobs Around Town and much more. Speaking of awesome helpers, Happy Father's Day. We have a special treat in store for that week to help
