It's Seuss Week and every day we will focus on one of Dr. Seuss' books and do fun activities connected to it.  Some of these books may be lesser known to you and others may be favourites from when you were a child.

 

Monday's book is The Shape of Me and Other Stuff, wear black today.

 

            At the art table we will use stencils to make outlines.   You can also show your child how to trace their own hand. 

 

I've switched the overhead projector for a lamp that will cast our shadows on the wall.  What shapes can we make with our bodies?

 

Tuesday's book is Mr. Brown Can Moo!  Can You?, wear brown today.

 

At the art table we will be making a collage with just brown; paint, pom poms, paper and more.   We will pull out all of our cows and play with them too.

 

Tuesday evening is our monthly pot luck and the theme is Pancakes and Pajamas.  Join in the fun between 4:30 – 7pm.   Bring pancakes to share and I'll bring toppings and extras.

 

Wednesday's book is One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, wear red and blue today.

 

At the art table we will create with sponges using red and blue paint.   Where else in the room will you find fish?

 

Thursday's book is The Cat in the Hat, dress like your favourite character from the book.  We will make cupcakes for snack to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday.

 

At the art table we will make hats that look like The Cat's.   Maybe you can find fabric in our basket to make a bow for your child to wear.

 

Friday is a professional development day and all schools will be closed.  All the StrongStart facilitators will join kindergarten teachers at a workshop in Parksville that will help us improve your child's transition from an early year's program to school.

 

Your March calendar is attached to this email, please print it off for a quick reference.  Also join us on Facebook at Brooklyn StrongStart's page to be up to date of what is happening.

 

We had great tours of the fire station last week and have learned more about equipment that is needed on the fire truck.  This week we will start creating and adding equipment.

 

In March we will begin our annual focus on airports as it is a time when families do travel.  There are two tours of the airport scheduled.  These have limits on it so you need to sign up if you would like to participate.

 

Our monthly outside day will be on St. Patrick's Day and we will spend at Hurford Park in East Courtenay looking for Leprechauns.
