Spin Preschool Newsletter…A program proudly brought to you by Starpoint 2016 Message Hard to believe that it is already July! Please remember that the children will be continuing to go outside daily. Before going outside, teachers have been putting sunblock on your children. We are looking for donations of sunblock (no aerosol please) due to the amount that we are having to use. We will be closed on Monday, July 4th. Hope everyone has a safe and fun filled Fourth of July! Toddler Room Infant Room It's already July and summer is here. The children are all growing and moving around. Our older ones are walking and the younger ones are starting to roll over. We'll continue to take the kids on stroller rides and we might bring out the water table :) We are also working on teaching simple sign language to use to express their needs. Thank You, Kris and Angie We are loving the warm weather and being outside. Water days have been a blast as well. We will continue to have water days until August. As a class, we are working on using utensils at meal times. We are also learning to use soft touches when we are playing with our friends. If you have any questions or concerns, please come and see us. Thank You, Michelle and Karen Purple Room Orange Room Wow, summer seems to be flying by! We will be welcoming new friends into our class this month. We are planning a pajama day/movie party on Wednesday, July 6th. Water days will continue every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has a swimsuit, towel, and water bottle with their name on them. Thank You, Nikki and Ashley With the temperature continuing to rise and sun becoming stronger, we are in need of sunscreen. We are going through a lot of it. Please be sure that your child has a water bottle to leave here. We are encouraging them all to drink plenty of water throughout the day. We are working on strategies to aid in handling our emotions, as well as following classroom expectations. There are several art projects in the works. Look for some of these to come home. Have a safe and happy 4th! Thank You, Patti and Cassi Brown Room/School Age Summer is here and we have a lot of fun activities coming up. Water days are every Wednesday, movie days, walks and more. Please check out our calendar for these upcoming activities. Also just a reminder for the field trips, we must have a permission slips signed for every trip or your child may not be able to attend. If you have any questions or suggestions please let us know. Thank You, Amy, Nina, Mary Activities for Home How to Rain Paint Supplies: Kool Aid rain containers paint brushes watercolor paper (optional) Directions: This homemade paint recipe is one of the easiest recipes ever! All u do was empty Kool Aid packets into oil baby food jars, then set the jars out in our backyard and waited for the rain. Once it rains enough to fill the jars give each paint mixture a good stir with the paint brushes. I chose watercolor paper for this project since I anticipated it being very wet. Regular paper can be used, although I recommend sticking with a heavier paper to avoid tearing. These homemade watercolors are so easy to make, and they smell incredible.
