Caterpillar Connection       March 8, 2019 Bi-Weekly

Thank you to all of our Caterpillar families who bid on our class quilt. Grayson Reeves and his family are the proud owners of our masterpiece and we are sure they will treasure it. Grayson will also be joining his teachers for an afternoon of fun at Cheesy Jane’s and the DoSeum; thank you Wei and Kyle. We’d like to thank Elissa Harrell for volunteering her time to assist selling punch cards during the event. To those of you who came out to our fundraiser thank you for attending.
These last two weeks have been full of fun! We discovered that the air is mainly made up of nitrogen and oxygen and that water is made of hydrogen and oxygen. We experimented with the wind tunnel to see how far feathers, scarves, balloons and other various objects traveled in comparison to each other. We learned about evaporation and condensation and how they relate to rain.                                                               We used our imagination to “jump” into an American Landscape painting and thought about what we would see, hear, feel and smell if we were there. In art we collaged with feathers sequins and beads. We played with shaving cream mixed with glue and painted with water colors. We danced with streamers and made rain storms with musical instruments. We made rain sticks and blew marbles through a maze. Along with the wind tunnel in the motor room we have been climbing and sliding. The dramatic play room has been a theater complete with a stage and puppet show and flannel board story areas.  The children have enjoyed telling stories and acting them out. In the manip room our Caterpillars have been busy collecting, counting and sorting bugs with handy scoopers.

Please help us welcome our delightful new friend, Kavya Patel and her parents Bakul and Bijal to our Caterpillar class! We are happy to have them and are excited to get to know them. Kavya visited us on our Cowboy Breakfast day and fit right in! She is sweet, confident and her eyes light up as she interacts with us! Speaking of our Cowboy Breakfast, we certainly couldn’t have done it without all of the supplies and help from all of you. Thank you for helping to make our day a success. Special thanks to Sybil Webb, Wei Reeves and Heather Garcia for taking the time from your busy schedules to help set up, cook, serve and clean up and to Brandi Deemer who helped so much with last minute modifications. The children made an egg casserole, cowboy coffee and heart shaped biscuits. Bacon and fruit added the final touches to our meal.

It was fun to see the children get into character as they wore their bandanas, prepared our meal and delivered their valentines.

Grandparents Day was also tons of fun. We cut hearts and decorated them with stickers in the manip room, strung pasta necklaces in the art room, bat balloons to each other in the motor room, and enjoyed being pioneers complete with a covered wagon in dramatic play! What a joy to see the children share their artwork and stories about their grandparents, such happy smiles! Thank you again for sending in those special keepsake stories!

We are beginning a unit on the weather and can’t wait to see where it takes us. It’s always fun to see our little Caterpillar minds at work and play! Our dramatic play room will transform from the covered wagon to a weather station and then to a theater where we will expand our stage presence. We are bringing up the wind tunnel and will surely have a blast experimenting with it!

“Tuning You into Your Child's Class”

Our Caterpillars have been busy learning about fire safety these past two weeks. We learned that if we ever find fire to crawl down low and cover our mouth and nose, and that if a fire is ever touching us to STOP, DROP AND ROLL! Our friend Firefighter Steven visited with all his gear and showed the children how he stays safe doing his job. We learned that a firefighter’s job is not just about putting out fires, but also helping people who need it and even saving kitties! We starved the flame of a candle of oxygen and counted the five seconds it took for the flame to extinguish. We did salt art, blob paintings and made refrigerator magnets for our grand- parents. The kids have enjoyed trucks, planes and boats in the motor room with a city taped to the floor complete with an airport, lake, hospital and even a Whataburger! Our dramatic play room is a fire station and we have had tons of fun dressing up as firefighters and saving the day! The loft has been full of books about fire safety and our puzzles and manips reflect that as well.    We have had a couple of changes to our Caterpillar Class. Atahan left us as his family moved to be close to his daddy’s work, and while we will miss him so much we are glad they will all be together again. There has been a staff change and Miss Carrie is needed in the Honey Bee Class. We have enjoyed having her and the great thing is that our Caterpillars can load her up on hugs upon arrival and after snack on the playground! Thank you Miss Carrie for your time with us!

Coming up next week is Grand- parents Day, Monday the 11th from 10:30 to 11:30. On Friday the 15th please send in Valentines for your child to deliver. I will send out an email with a class list and include information on how you can help make our Cowboy Breakfast a success. Everyone is welcome! We will plan to eat at 10:30 and hope you can attend. Remember that Monday the 18th is a Holiday!       Dates to Remember:

Caterpillar Connection: “Tuning You into Your Child's Class”
January 18, 2019 Bi-Weekly

What a great way to start 2019 with happy Caterpillars ready to learn, sing and play! We welcome our newest friend, Estefania Hengel with open arms and joyful hearts. She is a delightful addition to our class. A HUGE thank you to her mom, Beatriz, for coming in to share her expertise with us as we learned about some of the equipment doctors need to do their best to keep us healthy. The children loved wearing their gloves, hearing each other’s heart beats with her stethoscope and looking in each other’s mouths with their individual tongue depressors and her special light.  They were intrigued with all the equipment in their gift bags. Laura demonstrated with glitter how germs spread through contact, and I shared an activity with confetti in a balloon to give the children a visual representation of invisible germs. We stressed the importance of washing our hands throughout the day and how to use the inside of our elbows, our “cough pocket” to cough and sneeze.

A few thank yous go out to parents for helping to make our special Christmas snack special- Heather for the juice boxes, Brandi for the tamales and rings, Jessica for the oranges from their tree, and Sybil for making healthy wafers!

It’s incredible to me how much we fit in our time together! We have used oil pastels, swirled acrylics in liquid starch and popped balloons with paint inside to create some amazing works of art. The motor room has all the equipment of an obstacle course. Our doctor’s office has been a favorite as we have been keeping baby dolls healthy by checking temperatures, looking in ears and mouths, listening to heartbeats, monitoring blood pressures and checking reflexes. What fun! We drew in salt trays singing The Wheels on the Bus using the motions and patterns that will eventually become letters. Nest week we will begin talking about Fire Safety.
