Love month is over, but love still fills the infant room every day. We had so much fun during the month making valentines for our parents. We also experienced many new things. We exercised and practiced using our motor skills. We learned to play Peek-A-Boo and pretended to call home on our play phones. Our puppet story time has been awesome. Songs about our letters and sounds fill the air every day. Making our new sounds makes us giggle and we can’t wait to explore during the month of March as we welcome Spring. Thank you for your support of the butterfly infants.
Songs about forest animals and safaris filled the air in our room in February. Topping our list of favorites was “Old McDonald Had a Forest.” Making handprint owls and a safari collage kept our hands busy. We are looking forward to celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday and learning about all of the cool modes of transportation in March.
February was full of learning and celebrating! We celebrated all we’d learned so far on the 100th day of school. All month we explored the forest and safari animals. Elections were held for class offices as we learned about presidents of the past and present. Each day after the pledge we enjoyed a Moment in Black History and ended the month with great presentations on individuals who were important to black history such as Rosa Parks, Barack Obama, and Michael Jordan to name a few. March will be filled with learning and preparation for graduation! Spring will be here and graduation is right around the corner!

We learned about the forest and safari animals in the month of February! We read the book “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” and went on a bear hunt. We also made Valentine’s Day art and had a great celebration. The Busy Bees are looking forward to a terrific March and welcoming Spring.
February was a busy month for us! We learned about some of our US Presidents. Black History Month was celebrated by learning about a different person each week. Our study of forest, animals and safaris was wild. March brings Spring and our study of transportation. We will be happy to have nice weather to be outside using our large motor skills!
