Monday – 8:30 – 12

Friday – 8:30 – 10:30 then to Lazo Marsh

 

Last week I started introducing sign language at story time.  I will post videos of the signs on our Brooklyn StrongStart Facebook page for you to view and practice.  If there are specific signs you would like to learn please let me know.

 

This week's nursery rhyme is The Muffin Man.  The children can play with muffins and we will do a survey to see which muffins the children like to eat.

 

Monday Michelle, from PacificCare, will be available to answer any questions you may have on childcare settings in our valley.  She will be here from 9 – 10ish.

 

Last week the children were able to make their own volcanos erupt using vinegar and baking soda.  This week at the art table we will use red and yellow paint, eye droppers and egg cartons to make volcanos.

 

Tuesday is our baking day and we will make muffins together.  We will start cooking around 9 so come early if your child would like to help.  We will make extra if you come later.

 

Wednesday our grand friends will visit us around 10:30. 

 

Thursday we will get together with our big buddies and work with puzzles.  Ms Smith's class has been working with BreakoutEDU where they solve a variety of puzzles to unlock a mystery box.  Ms Smith has been thinking of ways that we can do this with our big buddies.  The puzzles are a first step.  I hope you can join in on the fun.

 

Friday we will close early, around 10:30, and go to Lazo Marsh to feed the birds.  If you plan on meeting us there I would suggest be there around 10:45.  We will go rain or shine.

 

Next Thursday, January 26th is our monthly evening session.  Normally I would close the next morning (which it says on our calendar) but I will be open that day and close one day the following week.

 

Friday, January 27th we will be open normal hours and will celebrate Lunar New Year.

 

Have a great week, Maureen

 

Muffin Man
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, do you know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane?


Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
The muffin man, the muffin man,
Oh, yes, I know the muffin man,
That lives on Drury Lane.
