We hope that you had a great week and that you enjoy the weekend.
SHUTTERFLY: Shutterfly has been updated! There are some new photos for you here: https://room1mcccdc.shutterfly.com/
CHEESE PIZZA/FRUIT SALAD ROOM PARTIES: Our room would like to have room parties during the week of Thanksgiving. We are open Monday through Wednesday that week (closed Thursday and Friday, 11/27-11/28). Here are the details about the parties:
Time: 11:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Dates: Tuesday, 11/25, and Wednesday, 11/26
Where: Room 1
What: Pizza and fruit salad parties
Please look for a donation list near the sign in book for the room parties! We think that it will make our week fun to have little gatherings before the long weekend.
ROOM UPDATES: We have a new planning sheet to share with all of you here: https://wordpress.miracosta.edu/laurap/files/2014/11/Indoor-planning-November-17.pdf
LINES PROJECT: Our classroom has begun a project about lines. We made an anticipatory web, which is in the hallway with our new documentation. The art studio has been great. The lines children have been making with crayons and watercolors are so neat to see. We decided at our room planning meeting today that our next step would be to focus on the “lines and our bodies” section of the web. The children in Room 1 have shown an interest in their bodies during songs and routine parts of the day. We want to start this part of the investigation by tracing the children’s hands and then inviting them to look at all of the lines on their hands. We can’t wait to see what they discover!
BIRDSEED DONATIONS: The birds have found our bird feeder outside! We are in need of birdseed. Some large hardware and general retail stores sell birdseed in large bags. Pet stores are often more expensive, but we will take any birdseed!

Dear Families of Room 1:
We hope that you are having a great day!
ROOM EVENTS: We just wanted to remind you that the pajama breakfast parties are next week, not this week. We wanted to give you all enough time to plan to attend. Also, you can come any time between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m. if you want to participate in breakfast. You do not have to arrive at 7:30 a.m. and stay the entire time. We can’t wait for the parties!
ITEMS FROM HOME: We have noticed that there are sometimes sippy cups and similar food items left on the counter by the sign-in book. We don’t always know to whom the cup belongs, so we can’t use it. If you are sending a sippy cup or similar item to school, please label it with your child’s name and let a teacher know about it. We also ask that you leave it on the counter by the adult food prep sink (by our classroom door) so that teacher can monitor who is getting those items.
QUILT PROJECT: In the next few days, we will have out some fabric pieces and arts and crafts supplies. We would like to invite you to take home a fabric piece and some art supplies so that you can decorate a quilt square for a classroom quilt. We would like to hang the quilt in our classroom. You can customize it with your child’s name, if you would like, and any decoration that you feel represents your child and family well. Or, perhaps you would enjoy treating it just as a fun and decorative art project. We cannot wait to see what you create at home with your child. Keep an eye out for the quilt project materials sometime soon!
FACEBOOK: You may enjoy seeing our Facebook page, if you have not yet checked it out. You do not have to belong to Facebook to take a peek!
See you all soon. Please ask if you have any questions. Thank you for reading our updates.
