Update Regarding Health and Safety Plan Meeting

My apologies for getting this week's newsletter sent out later than expected. I was waiting to see if more parents/guardians responded to last week's survey regarding times for a possible parent meeting. We have only had a few parents respond in regards to the Health and Safety Plan Meeting. As a result I will be reaching out to these individuals this week to discuss the plan and address their questions or concerns.

With that being said, I know our Extended School Year Teachers have been speaking to parents regarding whether they will be sending their children back to school on September 8th. For parents who are unsure or choosing to not send their child back to school, I will be reaching out to you as well.

I look forward to speaking to families this upcoming week.

 This week in the 1st video is Great fun video of 'Pete the Cat I love My White Shoes'
Story by Eric Litwin, Art by James Dean, Edited by Stephen Lentz, Music & Narration from HarperCollins Children's Book
The 2nd Video shows how to make a paper mache bowl using flour, water, paper, and a paper bowl, or a balloon.

I hope everyone has a great week!

Remember, there's no right or wrong in art as long as you try and to help with cleaning up after working.

Have fun and a great week!

Instrument Play Along
Here's an oldie but goodie from a previous newsletter. Grab an instrument (it doesn't have to be a shaker!) and play (or dance!) along to the song Sunday Best by Surfaces.

Read Along
Check out the story Doing the Animal Bop by Jan Ormerod and illustrated by Lindsey Gardiner. Ms. Amanda doesn't read it to you this time, but you'll hear the story sung with some catchy background music. Can you do the dances along with the animals in the book?
Online Music Making
Check out Typatone ! You can have your child type letters (if they're working on spelling or word identification, this would be a great way to have them practice!). Each key on the keyboard makes a different sound. An on-screen keyboard also appears in case you have a touch screen device. After a few seconds without key movement, the website will begin to replay the song to you! You can also change the background color/sounds made by clicking on the middle menu icon (it looks like a book with a music note in it). Clicking the forward arrow button will give you a link to the song!
