    Also The Occupational Therapy Institute is offering free virtual classes but you must register ASAP, see below.

    The Occupational Therapy Institute (OTI) of Salus University is offering a FREE virtual class for preschool children (3-5 years old) called MIGHTY MOVERS!


    MIGHTY MOVERS will promote gross motor skill development by engaging the large muscles of the body to build core strength and improve balance, coordination, and posture. Gross motor skill development is important for daily life activities including dressing, playing, and future academic skills such as handwriting. 


    We hope you will join us as we get your little movers engaged and moving around the room! 


    These fun, free classes will meet 2 times each week for 3 weeks. Classes run from March 8- March 25, 2021. Choose the class session that works best for you!


    Session I


    9:30 am- 10 am 


    Session II


    5:30 pm- 6 pm 


    To register for MIGHTY MOVERS, please email OTI@salus.edu. When registering, please include your name, your child’s name, your child’s age, your session choice, and the email you would like us to use to send you a secure class link.


    Even if you are remote you still must do the daily Covid screening.

    This week we "traveled" to Russia and we made pysanky eggs. We will continue "traveling" again this week but I like to keep the destination a surprise! This week we will be focusing on the letter Qq. We are discussing the things we know about pets and what we would like to find out about pets in our pet study. Humphery came to our class today for a visit. We will all be finding out more about Humphery as our entire school begins reading The World According to Humphrey. Happy Reading. Below you can click on to the links for the virtual book fair.

    I am still collecting empty oatmeal or bread crumb canisters and cereal boxes for some craft projects.



    Please wash the masks often they often fall on the floor. We will be going outside most days so send in an appropriate coat for the weather and a hat and mittens daily. You may even want to leave a hat and set of mittens in school if you have extras. If so leave a note in the notebook letting me know that they can remain here in school.



    Also for homework everyday your child should do 20 minutes of exercise. They can walk, run, play on the playground, play hopscotch, do yoga, ride a bike or play sports; anything that keeps them moving.
