"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

Upcoming Calendar:  Next week on Dec 18th or 19th we will be doing a Christmas program for our families for the last half hour of preschool.  We will highlight the kids and some of the songs they have been learning.  It will be a treat to see them show off a bit.  You are welcome to come and enjoy that.  We will also have refreshments afterward.

Homework Challenge:  This week we will be talking about the kitchen.  There are so many math, science, and reading skills that are built by doing cooking activities.  Please find time to include your child in some of your cooking/baking this holiday season.  These memories of cooking with mom and dad are priceless!  It takes some patience so do it when you both are well rested and have more time to dedicate to the project.  Don’t be offended if they get tired after helping for a few minutes.  Make sure they feel special for helping even for just a little bit.  This will encourage them to help more and build up their self confidence especially if you tell others they helped you make it while they are listening!
