The kids got super creative today and turned the letter M into a monster! Some were cute, some were scary and all were awesome. The kids are improving their fine motor and concentration skills each day when they make their alphabet craft. They are also learning the satisfaction of a job well done.
Each day we work on our beginning math skills by focusing on a shape or a number. We discuss the concept and the kids color a page in their math book related to the shape or number. We also sing songs to practice counting skills and practice typing our student identification numbers daily.
In honor of Father’s Day we read a great book about family, The Family Book by Todd Parr! We learned that there all kinds of families. What makes a family is people who love each other, care for each other, and help each other! We made a surprise for our dads if we have a dad in our family. If not we made a card for another person in our family. Here is The Family Book if you would like to read it again as a family. Enjoy! Happy Father’s Day to the dads out there as well as the other family members who step in when needed. And extra hugs to those who might have lost a dad and are missing them.
We have been learning about shapes! Yesterday the kids used play doh to make the shapes we have been learning about like squares, circles, rectangles, and squares. At first it was a challenge to figure out how to mark straight sides and corners.
One of our favorite times of day is playtime! Here are the little lovelies enjoying some fun with friends.
Here are the kids playing with our learning toys! They are practicing shapes, counting, sorting, patterning, letters, fine motor skills, and problem solving skills!
Below is a message about school supplies from Brooke, one of our BEU parents.
I am providing a service for parents to buy all their child’s school supplies online and they can pick them up at Meet the Teacher Night in August. The supplies will be “teacher approved.” To me; this means they will be Ticonderoga pencils, Crayola and Elmers. This company will also guarantee the supplies for the entire school year. For example, if you open some glue sticks and they are dried out; EPI will ship you new ones. This is a small fundraiser for the Outreach Committee. This will help build the extra supply closet so you won’t have to purchase supplies out of your own pocket. We also help buy snacks for kids who do not have them or birthday treats for kids who might not have them. We have done this with no budget. I am so excited to see what we can accomplish with a small budget. The best part is the prices are still right in line with shopping in the big box stores. I have attached two flyers you are welcome to share and a link to order. We also have a link to share for people that want to donate money. With these donations I can buy discounted supplies to put together packs for children at Beulah in need. I should be receiving a donation of 48 backpacks soon and my goal is to get enough donations to fill those up. Last year we were able to fill over 60 backpacks for BEU students. If you know a student that could benefit could you please encourage their parents and/or guardians to email Barb so she can put them on her recipient list that is kept confidential.
I will have some extra packs to sell on hand for incoming 2019 kindergarten parents.
