"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

Announcements:  Show and Tell this week!  Since we are talking about different occupations, have your child bring something that either Dad or Mom uses at work (it could be a picture also) to represent what mom or dad does.  It could be a tool, a finished product that they make, or a picture of mom or dad in uniform.
We are doing a few projects this month that need some supplies.  If you could help me by collecting some toilet paper rolls that would be great.  I thought we had enough and then we used quite a bit this month so I'm in need of some more.
It's a new month.  Tuition is due by the end of this week.  Thank you all for paying on time!  You all have been wonderful at this.

Homework Project:  We are talking about different jobs and occupations.  Does your child know what you and your husband do for a living?  If possible it would be cool for them to come see where you work what your desk or station looks like.  If you stay at home to care for children and manage the home this is a good opportunity to remind them of all the things you do to keep the home in order for them each day.
In our 4-5 year old group we will be preparing letters and envelopes to send to a loved one.  If you could help by addressing it and taking it to the post office or to your mailbox that would be great.
