March 2019 Wrap Around Parent Newsletter

This month is a short 3 weeks and then we embark on the coveted spring break!! This month we will be learning about Dr. Seuss throughout the week in March. We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd. Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!! The children will be reading all of his fun books and creating a hat with patterns. On Wacky Wednesday the children will be painting by holding the paint brush with their toes and the children will be lacing a pocket to draw a wocket. The following week the children will be learning and exploring the rainforest. Finally, the last week in March will be all about St. Patrick’s Day. The children will be learning about the Irish heritage and history of this holiday while creating fun crafts and stem projects.
