Little Bunnies

May 2017

This month in the Bunny’s Class we’ll be going on an under the sea adventure!  Our color of the month is orange to go along with gold fish from our Brown Bear story.

The end of the year is very near and we will be sad to see our Little Bunnies move to another classroom.  They have been an amazing class this year.  Hopefully, we’ll see some of our friends at Summer Camp. 

We have a very special event on May 11th and 12th.  The children have been working very hard to prepare for this special day for their mommies. The children are really looking forward to Mother’s Day Teas.  Please RSVP on the sign-up sheet and let us know that you will be attending with your child.  If you cannot attend it is fine to send a grandparent, nanny, or special friend to take your place. 

Thank you very much for your special support this year in our classroom. The classroom donations, special snacks, and thoughtfulness to the teachers during the holidays and throughout the school year have been greatly appreciated!

Spring has sprung and it’s going to be lots of fun! We will be learning all about our creepy crawly friends that live around the pond. We will also celebrate Easter, which, of course, is the Little Bunnies favorite holiday.

We will swat pesky flies, march like ants, hop like bunnies, and dance like butterflies—what an enjoyable way to learn!

We’ll also read some amazing books this month by Eric Carle, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Lonely Firefly, The Very Grouchy Lady Bug, The Very Quiet Cricket and so many more lovely spring books.

Happy spring!

Planes, trains and automobiles!  The Little Bunnies class will be zooming along this month with our TRANSPORTATION theme. Each week we will learn about a different form of transportation; cars and trucks, trains, boats, and airplanes. We will read lots of transportation books, including two favorites, Go Dog Go and The Wheels on the Race Car.

Our color for the month is green for St Patrick’s Day!  We will make several fun green projects with shimmering shamrocks and colorful rainbows!  Our Brown Bear character for this month will be “blue horse”.  Each month we read “Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?” and focus on different characters.  This will be a special end-of-the-year surprise!

October 2016

We had a really great first month of school!  It took a couple of weeks for the little ones to settle in but we can assure you that are drop offs are looking brighter!  We are looking forward to a great year.

Our farm theme in September was “ducky”.   The children love this theme because it is so familiar to them.  We enjoyed many books and songs all about the animals on Old McDonald’s farm!

This month our theme will be All About Me and the season of fall.  We will be learning all about our miraculous bodies!  Our color for the month will be orange and our shape will be a circle. Be watching for all the “boo-tiful” orange and round pumpkins that will be coming home this month!

Please remember to sign your child in and out each day using their first and last names. This is a licensing requirement and a matter of safety for your child.  Also please don’t forget to put your child’s name on all of their belongings. 

Thanks so much.

Twinkle, twinkle traffic light
Shining on the corner bright.
When it’s red, it’s stop, stop, stop!
When it’s yellow, it’s slow, slow, slow.
When it’s green, it’s GO! GO! GO!

We are marching into March to learn all about the things that “GO.” Transportation is always a favorite theme for the Little Bunnies Class!

We will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and learn about the color green. We will read a great book called GREEN by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.

The holidays are a magical time, especially for two year olds!  Most of them are really seeing it all for the first time.  Take time to enjoy the love, lights, sparkle, sweet smells, and joy that the season brings – like you are seeing it for the first time through the eyes of your two year old.

Our theme this month is Christmas!  We will create our own little Christmas right here in our room with special Christmas projects, stories, and music.  Our color of the month is green and our shape is the star.  We will be singing some favorite Christmas songs like Jingle Bells, Frosty the Snowman, Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, Rudolf the Red Nose Reindeer, and Must Be Santa!

Classroom Christmas parties and a visit from Santa will be on Wednesday, December 16 and Thursday, December 17.  Please let us know if your child is afraid of Santa so that we will be prepared to help them, if needed.

Merry Christmas! 
Teacher Mindy and Teacher Ruth

Welcome to the Little Bunnies Class!  We had a great start to our new school year.

The month of October will bring great excitement to our classroom!  Our themes for this month will be “All About Me and Halloween.”  We will be learning about our wonderful five senses.    Our color for the month will be orange. We will have a great time discovering things that are orange…especially pumpkins!

We will be learning these finger plays and songs: The Itsy Bitsy Spider, Five Little Pumpkins, and Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. 

We are sure enjoying getting acquainted with each new Little Bunny!
