The Red Room Newsletter: June 17 – 28, 2019

JUNE 17 – 21 AND 24 – 28
Our first two weeks were spent learning the routine, meeting and reconnecting with friends, and spending much time outdoors on the playground, with our animal friends, and at the pond. Our group is big but that means big fun!
Please remember that water time is often unplanned at Kinderfarm. Therefore, your child always needs to have a swimsuit and small towel in their backpack. Also note that the DHS considers sunscreen a drug so please do not send it in your child’s backpack.
This group has a wide variety of interests, but we managed to narrow the next two weeks down to Pizza Week and Camping Week. Please note that my Red Roomers are very inquisitive and eager to learn so planned lessons are thrown to the side as we follow a new lesson that popped up unexpectedly before us.
As I mentioned above, the week of June 24-28 will be devoted to a unit on camping. If you would like to send in items that can be included in our “camp site”, please feel free. Items to consider, but are not limited to, a child sized sleeping bag, a child sized camp chair, stuffed forest animals, binoculars, camp cookware, or maybe even fake camp food. Get creative with your child!
Kinderfarm will be closed July 4 – 5 in observance of Independence Day.
Who doesn’t love pizza? There are so many choices today that one could probably eat a different kind of pizza every day of the year. Well, we don’t want to go that far but a weeks’ worth of trying different kinds of pizzas seemed like a fun idea. So here we go!
MONDAY – We will kick off Pizza Week by making faces on English Muffins. Be sure to ask your child about the book Pete’s Pizza.
TUESDAY – Collecting eggs is one of the chores the children do during the day. We will use the collected eggs today to make Breakfast Pizza. Has your child ever had pizza for breakfast? Be sure to ask them if they want to have it again.
WEDNESDAY – When you think of pizza you generally think of meat and cheese toppings. But what about fruit toppings? Hmmm… Fruit Pizza??
THURSDAY – The book Hey, Pizza Man will get us going today. Our pizza of the day? Mini pizzas on Grands Biscuits.
FRIDAY – We will round out the week by making the most anticipated pizza. A Candy Pizza. Was it worth the wait? Ask your child!
JUNE 24 – 28
The children are so excited about turning the stage in the Green Room into a camp site! We will begin the week by removing the kitchen play area and preparing our camp site. The rest of the week will be spent on making smore’s and pie iron pizzas, pond exploration, a color scavenger hunt, making nature bracelets, bark and leaf rubbings, berry painting, and campfire songs.
