JANUARY NEWS FROM MS. MARY
This month the toddlers will be learning about arctic animals! Our Montessori toddler works will be mostly centered around this theme. From simple arctic animal flashcards to more complex works like mother and baby matching we hope to delve deep in this theme. Last month our toddler community expressed much interest in learning about the different types of animals that live in the North Pole so we hope to explore this topic a bit deeper with them.
We are so happy to announce that our nature walks have become a success! The toddlers are ecstatic about our daily small walks and are noticing new things around the world each time we go out.
- Please bring a fitted sheet along with a blanket every Monday for nap time. These will need to be taken home every Friday.
- Please refrain from using the top of the cubbies as extra storage. All toddler belongings must go in their cubbies and or diaper cubbies.
- Please do not bring toys to school. We allow a small stuffed animal to be used at nap time only. These tend to become quite the distraction during work times and can even start arguments between students.
- It is still chilly outside so be sure to dress in layers and bring your mittens, hats, and winter jackets.
