"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

We will start daily math concepts and lessons this week.
Home Challenge/Project:  Put magnetic letters on your fridge or magnet board for your child to play with and to build "words".  I found magnetic letters and numbers at All a Dollar, it has been a great investment!  Help your child spell their name and simple words.  They can also invent their own words and you can help them sound them out.    Did you find time to read a story or two to your preschooler today?  Yes?  Great job!!!  If not, commit to do it tomorrow.  Reading everyday will instill a love for learning, books, and reading.  

Upcoming Calendar Item:  
  • October 11th and 12th we will be going on a field trip to Macey's Grocery Store. I will need one parent that can help me transport children.  If you are willing will you please e-mail me back.  We will also need you to leave your child's boaster seat.  

  • Week of October 25th-No Preschool.  Our family is taking a trip to Disneyland.
