Hi Rainbow Families

We are settling in very smoothly to our new classroom! We had fun talking a little about our bodies and a very lively conversation about healthy or as we now like to call them.. "energy foods" We touched a little on using our words instead of our bodies to express ourselves but best of all was the "Chicken Song " (an old jazz song - Chicken Rhythm -now a firm favorite in the rainbow room)! 

We successfully introduced daily helpers to our day this week...so check with your child and find out what job they were given. Everyone has a different helper job each day. Also, everyone is grasping the concept of the "sharing basket" and is doing an awesome job of letting friends take a turn or a look at a special item from home and best of all returning it to the sharing basket until the end of the day! 

Over the next couple of weeks we will be introducing " Rainbow Headlines" This will be our news time where each rainbow will share a news item and get to see it written as a headline. I will keep you posted! 

You may have noticed some half eaten sandwiches and left over lunches coming home, this is purposefully done so that you can see what your child has eaten (or not). They are also encouraged to pack up and clean up their own snack and lunch independently. 

We have been very fortunate to be able to picnic outside this last week and will continue to do so whenever we can! Look out for our Rainbow Flag (by the playground gate) to signal we are outside. 

"Extra fun" began last week so please keep in mind you can sign up for a little extra time for yourself and extra fun for your child on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3pm and on Fridays we have an awesome Creative Movement program from 1-2pm. Look for the calendar in the hallway opposite the WildFlower Classroom to sign up. 

This week's theme is "My Family". Looking forward to seeing all of my special Rainbow Family next week! Fabia
