​JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN

​Dear Parents,
  This month I would like to begin by saying thank you to all of our wonderful room parents for the terrific Valentine’s Day parties. The children had a great time, and they truly enjoyed decorating their mailboxes and bags.

  Our theme for March is Our Weather. Our children will be participating in several spring related activities. They will be observing, graphing, and predicting the weather; as well as learning what they should do in times of severe weather. They will also explore the mechanics of simple tools such as pulleys, gears, cranks, and pendulums. There will be an introduction to money. The children will begin to learn to identify coins and bills, and will discover that money is used as a form of exchange for goods and services as they play store. They will also be learning letters S, T, and U, and sight words can, could, would, go, and gave. Our numbers are 17 and 18.

  Our memory Bible verse is Jesus said, I am the good shepherd. John 10:11. Our Bible stories will include Jesus Teaches Us About the Lost Sheep, Noah’s Ark, and Jesus Calms the Storm. The children will learn that Jesus will always be there to watch over them.

  There is No School on Thursday, March 5, and Friday, March 6. Our teachers will be conducting Junior Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten Parent/Teacher Conferences. If you have not yet signed up for a time to meet with your child’s teacher, please do so as soon as possible. You will find conference sign-up sheets posted on the parent boards. Please also note that Adam Lamb 



Preschool will be closed from March 23 – March27 for spring break.  

  The children may wear silly socks to school on March11. They may wear their favorite character socks, mismatched socks, or socks they’ve decorated themselves. Be creative and have fun with Silly Sock Day!

  Registration for the 2020 -2021 Kid’s Day Out program is scheduled for Saturday, February 29, 2020 for DPC members, KDO families, and Adam Lamb families. Registration is open to the public on Saturday, March 7, 2020. For more information about the KDO program, please call Karen at (636) 561-4347.

  The JK Easter egg hunts will be held on Thursday, April 9, during the last 20 minutes of the class period. The children will need to bring 6 large plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and taped closed to school for the Easter egg hunt. Please only choose candies from our approved snack list. More information about the Easter egg hunt will be sent home on a later date.

  Junior Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten graduation pictures will be taken in the sanctuary on Wednesday, April 1, 2020. Your child should come to school dressed in his/her “Sunday Best” for picture day. We recommend that your child wear the same outfit in which he/she will be wearing on graduation night.


  Here are the words to a finger play and a fun chant you can teach your little one.

Eggs to Chicks

Five eggs and five eggs, that makes ten. (Hold up one hand, and then the other.) Sitting on top is old mother hen. (Make two fists, and then put one on top of the other.) Crackety-crackety, what do I see? (Place one hand above your eyes as if you are looking off into the distance.) Ten little chicks, looking at me! (Point to yourself.) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10. (Hold up your fingers as you count.)

FIRST YEAR PRESCHOOL

​Dear Parents,
  This month I would like to begin by saying thank you to all of our wonderful room parents for our Valentine’s Day parties. The children had a great time, and they truly enjoyed decorating their mailboxes and bags.

  Our theme for the month of March is Animals and Their Homes. The children will explore farm animals, zoo animals, and pets. They will be introduced to math concepts big/medium/small; long/short; and heavy/light, as well as corresponding vocabulary words such as big/bigger/biggest and heavy/heavier/heaviest. They’ll focus on numbers 6, 7, and 8.  

  Our memory Bible verse is Jesus said, I am the good shepherd. John 10:11. Our Bible stories will include Jesus Teaches Us About the Lost Sheep, Noah’s Big Boat, and David and the Lions. Our spiritual objective is to teach our students that Jesus cares about everyone.  

  To celebrate the amazing animals God has created, we will have Animal Day. On Thursday, March 19, the children may bring their favorite stuffed animal to school. If possible, please write your child’s name on the tag of his/her stuffed animal. 

  There is No School on Thursday, March 5 for our FYP students. Our teachers will be conducting Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Pre-kindergarten (PK) Parent/Teacher Conferences that day. Information regarding your First Year Preschooler’s progress will be sent home at the end of April. Please also note that Adam Lamb Preschool will be closed March 23 - March 27 for spring break.  
  

  Registration for the 2020 -2021 Kid’s Day Out program is scheduled for Saturday, February 29, 2020 for DPC members, KDO members, and Adam Lamb families. Registration for the KDO program will be open to the public on Saturday, March 7, 2020. For more information about the KDO program, please call Karen at (636) 561-4347.

  The FYP Easter egg hunts will be held on Thursday, April 9, at 11:40 am for the half-day classes and 2:45 for full-day classes. The children will need to bring 6 large plastic Easter eggs filled with candy and taped closed to school for the Easter egg hunts. Please only choose candies from our approved snack list. More information about the Easter egg hunts will be sent home on a later date.

Here are the words to a finger play and a song you can teach your little one.

Noah Works with One Hammer 

Noah works with one hammer, one hammer, one hammer.
Noah works with one hammer all day long.
(Pretend to hammer with one hand.) 

Noah works with two hammers, two hammers, two hammers.
Noah works with two hammers all day long.
(Pretend to hammer with two hands.) 

Continue the song using your feet and head as hammers.
