Welcome!

Ms. Sallie and Ms. Barbara welcomed 22 children including 6 new boys and girls to our class for the 2016-17 school year.  We will be uploading our class blog at least once a month (and sometimes in-between), so please look forward in finding out what the children are working on and/or interested in.  We will also be informing you of any changes in schedule and other important or good-to-know information too.  We hope to share as much as we can with you through Ms. Sallie and Ms. Barbara’s Class’ Blog.

During the first few weeks of school, the children will be learning/re the everyday routines of the class as well as having basic presentations which often are forgotten over the long summer, such as pushing in chairs, rolling and unrolling mats and the various process of doing various activities, starting back with the simpler and moving on.  As you are already aware through our class calendar, the children will visit the library on Fridays with the 5 year olds going every week and the 3 and 4 year olds going every other week.  Movement classes are also an exciting part of the week.  There is a rotation between Gross Motor Movement and Creative Movement which take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  Show-and-Tell will be on Mondays and Thursdays and will be for the children who received the special yellow Show-and-Tell bag.  The children are welcome to bring in up to 5 items in the bag, but not toys.  Snack time is also an important part of the children’s morning.  We will have a group snack time on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and individual snack time (as part of an activity) on the other days.

We are already off to a good start with the children and would like thank you for the support you have given us.  If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please do not hesitate in contacting me in person or by email.
