 Please continue to help your preschooler practice putting on and taking off coats,   We are all learning and practicing our self-help skills in the dramatic play area and at the end of the day.  Our math goals: to be able to extend a pattern using various objects, colors and count items 1-20.  Try to have your preschooler identify the numbers 1-10.  Way to go little piglets.
The class has been doing a wonderful job stating their first and last names and starting to state the town and state when requested to do so. Now for the month of April see if they can tell you the street address and town.  Keep practicing at home with your preschooler this is a very important safety skill for them to know.
Please continue to read to your preschooler each day or let them read to you.  Talk about the concepts, categories, and alphabet letters.  Please review and play simple "I Spy" games to help them retain skills learned.  Please continue to make time to review and complete speech lessons as well. 
Thank you again for all your continued support at home. :)
