The Red Room Newsletter: January 15 – 26, 2018


JANUARY 15 – 19 AND 22 – 26

I hope everyone had a wonderful break. My break was restful but I was ready to get back to a normal schedule. I know the Red Roomers were glad to see both their human and animal friends and get back into our routine. J

Our focus over the next two weeks will be on Dr. Martin Luther King and a unit on transportation. Please note that Share Days are January 19 and 25. Children that attend full day may bring an item to share with their morning class and an item to share with their afternoon class.

Registration materials for summer/fall are now available on the Kinderfarm website. Families of children already enrolled at Kinderfarm may begin enrolling now. Open enrollment for families not currently enrolled will begin February 1. If you would like to enroll your child for either/both of the summer sessions and/or fall, please download the paperwork, complete the forms, and return them with the necessary deposits. Please note that tuition for the summer is based on six and five weeks. Tuition for the school year is monthly based (four weeks).Spaces do tend to fill up quickly so it is recommended that you return the paperwork as soon as possible in order to secure a space for your child. Feel free to call Kinderfarm with any questions you might have about summer/fall registration.


TUESDAY – The white dove is a sign of peace. The Red Roomers will be making a handprint dove to share with you at home. The children will also be bringing home a treat with a message to share at home.

WEDNESDAY – Today we will have an egg cracking activity. The children will examine both brown and white eggs. After discussing the obvious outside difference each child will get to crack one open and examine the inside. Are the insides different? Now what to do with all of the cracked eggs….why, scrambled eggs of course! Today’s activity might be a great opener for more discussion at home.

THURSDAY – Today we will be discussing how words or actions can harm a heart, make someone feel bad, and takes time to heal. Our art activity will illustrate this discussion.


JANUARY 22 – 26

MONDAY – Casey will be our guest this morning. Be sure to ask your child what kinds of books she shared with us today.

Scissor skills will be put to the test this afternoon. The boys and girls will be pretending that their scissors are trains. Their train must cut along railroad tracks that are straight, curved, and jagged lines.

TUESDAY – Red means stop, green means go and yellow means caution. The children will be making a traffic light out of torn paper to illustrate this concept. We will also make a traffic light to eat! How crazy is that! Ask your child about it!

WEDNESDAY – The Red Roomers will be gluing squares with the letters of their name to create a name train. A paper engine and drawn wheels will complete the project.


FRIDAY – Red Roomers will continue to work on name writing skills today as they trace their name and date on a “license plate” with glue. The finishing touch will be a sprinkle of glitter. J
