August 2016

We’re going to have a roaring good time in the yellow 2 room. This month e will be exploring animal sounds. The children will discover a variety of sounds and will determine how they feel about the sounds through a variety of emotions. We will explore our senses as the children strengthen their sense of touch by feeling different textures similar to animals (Touch and feel books etc.) We will continue to provide opportunities throughout the day to develop motor skills such as crawling, walking and picking up toys/ food.

Every Friday will be story tale day. Bring in your child’s favorite story book to share. Reading to your child at an early age encourages successful reading skills as they become older.

The children will continue to become familiar with new staff in the room. The staff and children are getting along great so far and we will continue to strengthen their relationships throughout the month.

From Our New Lead Teacher, Mrs. Staci:

I wanted to take a quick moment to write a little bit about me. I have lived in Great Falls for 8 years and I LOVE IT! My husband (Married 18 years) retired from the Air Force and brought the family here to his hometown. We have three beautiful children; Sarah (15), Christina (13) and Nicholas (5). I have been working in childcare since 2003 receiving my CDA in 2004. I began working here at St. Thomas in 2009 in the preschool rooms and in 2013 I accepted a job to work at the Child Development Center on Malmstrom Air Force Base. I worked there until I returned to St. Thomas here this month. I am very excited to get to know all the families and the children in the yellow room. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
