Casa I News

Dear Families,

With the leaves turning color and the chill in the morning air, we certainly know fall is here. In our environment the changes are noticeable as well. The children are showing many signs of how comfortable they feel. They seem more independent and eager to learn. This pass month they also enjoyed watching the life cycle of the butterflies and of course releasing them out in our garden. We had a good first month with many changes and improvements in all of us. I’m looking forward observing new achievements and many more learning experiences ahead. I hope you enjoy our photo gallery; which speaks for itself!

Reminders:

·         Please arrive on time. We would like your child feel part of the beginning of the work cycle.

·         Send a well balance lunch for your child. The school provides milk and water. We do not recommend box lunches.

·         Oct. 29th We will have Fall Celebration Activities in our Casa with games and face painting. Please let me know if your child has any allergies to face paint.

·         Oct. 30th Parent Conference. I would like to encourage new families to sign up for the first date if possible.

Spanish Vocabulary:

Ways to foster Independence at home:

1.      The child should be an active part in all areas of the house.

2.      Provide the child with child size tools and space.

3.       Make bedtime consistent every night, develop a routine.

4.      Show the child how to do things, if they forget how to do it reminded them and focus on their effort.

Thank you – gracias
