Little Bunnies

September - October 2021

Hi Bunnies Families!

Wow, what a wonderful month we’ve had in the Little Bunnies class!  It took our Little Bunnies a couple of weeks to settle in, but they have done a great job learning our routine and schedule! They have been having fun being silly and playing with their classmates.  We are all very excited to teach your amazing children. 

In September we had great fun with our welcome to preschool and zoo themes. We learned about things you can do and see at school and animals that live at the zoo!

Our nursery rhyme for the month is:

Mary Had a Little Lamb
Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow;
And everywhere that Mary went,
The lamb was sure to go.
It followed her to school one day,
That was against the rule.
It made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.

We do not have pets at our school but at the zoo there are many animals. Fun fact: we learned there are no dinosaurs at the zoo, but there are giraffes, tigers, lions, and elephants. Our virtue was “helpful” and we talked about how when they help clean up toys or help a sad friend they are being helpful. We also had fun learning about the number one, circles and the color yellow, like the sun. We have been singing our A,B,C’s to learn our letters.

We have read Five Little Ducks Go to School by Carol Roth and learned that it is okay to have fun at school and miss our parents. We also read Hey, Who Made This Mess? By Primo Gallanosa, a story of a sweet kitten who visits the zoo leaving paw prints everywhere.

Please remember to sign your child in and out each day on the sign in sheets. This is a state Licensing regulation. Also, please label all your child’s belongings that they bring to school (including masks). This is a huge timesaver for us! With cooler weather arriving please make sure your child has a labeled sweater or jacket available each day. Next month our themes will be Fall, Farm, and Halloween.

Enjoy your colorful autumn days!
