February Week 1

This week was full of excitement for our Big Bears! First they learned about love and friendship, as well as some of our wonderful community helpers; such as police officer, garbage colector and baker. San Pedro police officers came to offer a nice presentation, reinforcing that a traffic light has three colors which mean the following: red-stop, yellow- be careful, and green- go and to hold someone’s hand in order to cross the street. Big Bears enjoyed the police officer’s observations and it was great that they

even showed all traffic signs in English! Our students know perfectly they have to buckle up in order to be safe in a car, too.

We have been developing their motor skills, both fine and gross by making them trace their names and working in physical development and coordination. We are still practicing the numbers and developing holding crayons properly as we do prewriting exercises.

On Friday, February 10 we would like to ask you if it is possible to send a labeled toothbrush and toothpaste for a brushing demonstration that will take place that day.

Also, we have been practicing the following rhyme called “February”

Red paper, blue paper

Crayons and glue

We re making valentines

And ONE is for YOU “

As you know, next Tuesday, February 14 we will celebrate “Valentines Day”. Children only need a thermos with water, no lunchboxes that day! If you will be sending valentines for your child´s classmates, please only label who it´s from. There are 15 Big Bears in the class.

As teachers we always want the best for your child because we love them with all our hearts.

Have a great weekend!
Ms. Caya and Miss Karen
