Mrs. Raiford's April Newsletter 2019
Dear Room, 128 Families
April is here and as spring comes in the weather is getting warmer and the children are excited. Yay! Spring!! We’re planning for a “Pajama Day!” on Thursday, April 18th. The children can wear their pajamas to school on that day. Also, as we celebrate the return of spring and if you are able please send a treat enough to share with 18 children. We will be coloring eggs that day as well.
We are planning for a field trip on April to the Belair Luxury Cinema to see the movie Dumbo. The children will receive popcorn and a soda. Also, on May 16th we will be going to the Michigan Academy of Gymnastics. We are also planning trips to Belle Isle Nature Center and Aquarium. We may possibly be going to the Detroit Zoo.
PLAY WITH A DEFINITE PURPOSE
It’s Not, “Just Play”
Play is an essential part of early
learning. It is the lifeblood of the
learning process. As children play
they are developing the cognitive,
socio-emotional and physical skills
they will need to take them into
a successful adulthood.
They are developing their curiosity,
problem solving, intentionality,
flexibility, and verbal and non-verbal
Socio-emotionally they are
developing their emotional
cooperation, negotiation, sharing,
empathy and how to communicate
Physically their fine motor and gross
motor skills are being practiced and
It’s not “just play” they are skills for life!
