Welcome 2015!

Happy New Year!

We are so excited for all the fun things to come this year!


Here’s what’s happening in January:

-Wear an animal mask to school on Tuesday the 6th!

-We will be playing Animal Charades on Wednesday the 7th!

-Bring a stuffed animal to school on Wednesday the 14th!

-A Mystery Reader will be coming into the classrooms on Wednesday the 21st!

-We are designing our own animals on Friday the 23rd!

-Wear Blue to school on Wednesday the 28th to show your school spirit!

-Friday the 30th is the 100th day of school!


Here are some ideas for indoor snowy day play!

1.  Bring the snow inside! Put on your mittens and hats and explore the snow in a big bowl or tub!

2.  Play dress-up! Pull out those old prom and bridesmaid dresses and let your children put on a fashion show!

3.  Bake or cook! Have your kids help you make some yummy cookies!  Or let them decide what to make for dinner and help cook it!

4.  Arts and crafts!  Make a bird feeder out of peanut butter and birdseed! Birds need help in the winter finding food!

5.  Do a big puzzle! Work with your kids to find all of the outside pieces to get it started!

6.  Read some stories or watch a movie in front of the fireplace!

7.  Have fun and stay warm cuddled up on the couch with some yummy hot chocolate!


“Little January
Tapped at my door today.
And said, “Put on your winter wraps,
And come outdoors to play.”
Little January
Is always full of fun;
Until the set of sun.
Little January
Will stay a month with me
And we will have such jolly times –
Just come along and see.”
–  Winifred C. Marshall, January
