March 11 - 15 
M is for Minnesota

Will we learn more about our home state this week?  You betcha!  We will be making our own Minnesota maps, playing in one of our 10,000 lakes in the water table, creating our own cherry and spoon sculptures, jumping through 10 hula hoops (10,000 lakes) and tasting our state muffin (blueberry) and state drink (milk).  These fun and engaging activities help us to develop fine and large motor skill and make language, math and science connections.  They also encourage creativity.  Give me an M-I-N-N-E-S-O-T-A.  What does that spell?  Fun and knowledge for preschoolers.  Please continue to bring in MN artifacts to extend our learning.  

Wear your favorite Minnesota clothing and/or colors on March 13/14.  There will be no school next week - March 18 - 22 as we enjoy a spring break.  School resumes on Monday, March 25.    

March Scholastic book orders are due on Wednesday, March 13.     

New vocabulary words - Minnesota, agate, loon, lady's slipper, Mississippi River, Monarch

Outside play every Wednesday.  Dress for Minnesota weather.


Mystery Readers - We are looking for friends of the preschoolers who would like to SURPRISE us by meeting our class in the library to read a good story.  We can provide the picture book or you can bring a favorite of your own.  If interested, sign up for a convenient date on our Mystery Reader links below.  We welcome moms, dads, grandparents, siblings, etc.  Readers need not be virtus trained.  Just check in at the office and meet us downstairs in the school library at 9:30 a.m.  It will make our day!  We love a good mystery.

A big thank you to our last Mystery Reader, Declan's Dad.
