Taking Care

How do we care for ourselves and others?

Hello Families!

Get ready to explore, read, and play! Children learn all the time, and your involvement is crucial. Here you will find the tools you need to support your little learner at home. Here we grow!

Let's Celebrate!

Over the next few weeks, children will use recycled materials to make crafts, and they will explore caring for themselves, others, and the world through books, games, and songs. You will be invited to participate as we celebrate what it means to "take care."

Family Letters

Hello, Families! Learn what we are talking about each week, and discover some simple activities you can do at home. Literacy is everyday practices, not just something that happens in school.

Volunteer Notes

You can help! In the coming weeks, be on the look-out for volunteer requests, or contact your teacher to learn how you can participate.

Celebration Notes

Your little ones are making great strides by taking small steps. Notice if they can write their names, count objects, or help around the home. Acknowledge these milestones with a hug and "That gives me a happy feeling!"

Theme 4: Taking Care

Our little learners depend on adults to care for them. This month, children will learn how they can care for themselves, too, and also how to show they care for others and for their world.

Try This!

Your commitment is the key to your little learner's success. Ready to unlock a bright future? Do these daily activities and routines at home!
