Kit Foxes: Ms. Daisy and Miss Naiya
I would like to welcome everyone to a new school year! I would also like to welcome my new
assistant Ms. Naiya who has been a delightful addition to the class. We have spent the first few weeks of school getting to know each other and the environment. Over the next few weeks we are working on letter recognition and sound, number recognition and basic addition. In Practical Life we will work on the basics such as pouring, sweeping and transferring (all great for developing fine motor skills). In the Cultural area there are works involving land and water forms, parts of a fish and shapes.
The children are enjoying both their Music class every Monday and their Spanish class every Tuesday. The holidays will soon be here and we will be studying Hanukkah and Christmas through songs and stories. If you have any questions regarding the holidays, please let me know. Pizza day is every Wednesday and Show-and-Tell is on the last Wednesday of every month. We will be doing yoga every Monday morning. Make sure your child has plenty of food for the day. Please pack fruit and another healthy snack for the morning snack time. If needed, peel and/or cut up fruit. Include drinks in a container with a sip top lid or a bite valve, please no fruit juices or other sugary drinks. Pack reusable utensils and cloth napkins.
Thank you for using the drive-through drop off service between 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM to drop of your
children. We start morning circle at 8:45 AM and would like all children to be in class by 8:30 AM.
Remember that cooler weather is coming and your child will need appropriate clothing. Keep in mind that outside shoes will get sandy and muddy. Shoes should be easy for the child to put on and take off, with no shoelaces. We will teach shoelace tying in January.
A special thanks to Christian Nardi for setting up the wonderful story time at her fabulous children’s
bookstore “Bee Hive”! We have really enjoyed our field trips to The Bee Hive.
Finally, remember to help your children achieve independence by letting them put on and take off their own shoes, clothing and coats. Let them carry their own lunch boxes and backpacks both into and out of school. Thank you for all of your support in this endeavor!
Reminder: Please return all permission slips and money for field trips. Also, please let me know if you
would like to be a Room Parent.
Many thanks from Miss Daisy and Miss Naiya!
