"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

School Supplies Needed

I've had a few parents ask what supplies will you need for preschool.  Since stores have already started back to school sales I thought I better let you know what to look for.
1.  A backpack
I would like every student to have one that fits an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper.  --This will be taken to school everyday.  The really tiny backpacks are hard to send home papers in because often we have to fold some of the students beautiful creations and that can make them upset.  This way they will have a good size backpack now so they can use it for Kindergarten in a year or two.
2.  100 stickers
Any size, color, style.  These will be used for various projects and it's so fun to have a variety of stickers to choose from.

This is all I need them to bring everyday but I would recommend you have these at home so your child can continue the creative and writing juices they are learning at home
3.  box of crayons
4.  construction paper
5.  water color --paint set
6.  Pencil--I would recommend the Dixon brand Tri-Conderoga (I get them at Staples) These are larger for small hands and help them get a good pencil grip at a young age.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
