hello everyone! hope you are having a wonderful weekend! we had a lot of fun last week with our creepy crawlies theme...we are certainly seeing a lot of creepy crawly things on the playground this time of year! we made ant thumbprint pictures, ladybugs, and we painted with plastic bugs. we took a walk around the church campus looking for bugs...but mostly ended up just smelling lots of flowers. :) this week we will be focusing on some of our favorite authors. we'll be reading books by maurice sendak, dr. seuss, and leo leonni among others. we may even turn into wild things for a day!

thanks to everyone who participated in the vote about the space for the school. it was a stressful time for the school, but now that the decision is made we can start to focus on the future. it will be so good to have a space of our own again! i miss those messy art projects!!

don't forget that we have conferences on wednesday! if you would like a conference and you haven't signed up for one, let me know. i will prepare a conference form for each child and if you don't meet with me i will put the form in your folder. also, if you do have a conference and leave your child on the playground to be watched by a parent, please make sure you sign up for shift of playground duty.

finally, we are going to try and make a carnival happen, so be on the look out for info. carnival only happens with LOTS of parent participation. it is not a big commitment of time--usually about an hour and a half on carnival day, or an hour of prep at home---and we can't make carnival happen with out you! it is the kids favorite event of the year, and i think we need it this year more than ever. so be looking for emails in the next week or so.
