"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:  Thanks so much for all those that were able to come out to the parade.  We had a lot of fun.  I posted a picture on our facebook page if you want to check it out.   Can you believe we only have two weeks left of preschool.  The month is flying by and we are about ready for graduation.  I will be doing final testing this week and next.  I will just take one child at a time during free time to get them done.  This final testing will help us see how much your child has retained throughout the year.  This Wednesday and Thursday if our last field trip for the year.  I will send a separate e-mail with our itinerary so watch for that.  I do still need one parent to help drive.  We only need a car that can hold two preschool children.  If you would like to come but can't drive I can take one adult in my van.  I can fit six children in my van.  If you know you can’t come to preschool on Thursday please let me know so we know how many to plan for.

Home Challenge:  Start thinking of summer now.  Kindergarten will begin before you know it.  To help prepare you child, schedule your day so you can fit in some Reading Time, and some type of project, whether it's, coloring, playing an alphabet or counting game, or making something together in the kitchen.  Have them practice writing their name for you everyday.  There are lots of story times and summer reading programs that can help motivate your child to read with you this summer.  Another thing to think about is to keep them active by going to the park and playing outside.  We like to take swimming lessons so they learn how to be safe in the water.   I have summer registration forms if you would like to sign up for our summer preschool.
