NATIONAL BATH SAFETY MONTH
Rub a Dub Dub! Our kid's bath time can be both relaxing and fun. But, during January - National Bath Safety Month, the American Academy of Pediatrics warns that drowning is the LEADING cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 0-4. Many parents don't realize the risk that bath time holds for their little ones. Of the child drownings occurring in the house, nearly half of the children had been out of sight for less than five minutes prior to the incident. And, more than two-thirds drown in less than 2 inches of water. In addition to drowning, the bath tub holds many other risk to your children including extreme water temperatures and slipping/falling. Here are a few tips we've put together for our families:
- ALWAYS have an adult within arms reach
- Never leave another child to supervise
- Learn CPR
- Set your water heater to a maximum of 120' F
- Wait until the tub is finished filling before putting your child in (temperatures can change)
- Add anti-slip mats to the floor of the tub/shower
In the new year we will be learning about Nursery Rhymes, Traditional Tales, Fairy Tales and Ballads, Folktales, and Fables. Breaking each one down weekly.
We will start the month out with Nursery Rhymes. This week we will learn about the different Nursery Rhymes and learn some new nursery rhymes.
Week two we jump into Traditional Tales, this week we will learn about tales such as "Little Red", "Little Red Hen" and "The Gingerbread Boy".
Week three we dive into Fairy Tales. We will learn what a fairy tale is and the difference between a fairy tale and Nursery Rhymes.
Week four we end the month with Ballads, Folktales, and Fables. We will learn what each is and the history of all of them.
This month we are going to be learning about our colors. Since it is a new year we are going to learn new things. Some things I would like to try writing our names, counting to 10 and learning our ABC's.
Happy New Year! 2021 came and went so fast!
For January we will be working on the number 10 and the colors grey, black & white. Here's to an awesome 2022!
Happy New Year! It's been a crazy year with lots of new changes.
This month we will be focusing on classroom routines and getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. We've had lots of new friends start and have some new friends coming in our class this month so it's important that we help these friends learn our classroom and our routines.
