Sea Star Newsletter
February 3-7, 2020

Hello February! The bear cave is gone and we are moving onto Valentine’s, Post Office and Chinese New Year. The kids have stations where they can create valentines and mail them. This is a fun way for the kids to practice writing and drawing. Then they can be sorted in the Post Office. There are stickers and stamps for the postal workers too. It’s all very official. 
When you step into the kitchen/home living area you’ll be stepping into China. We’ll use chopsticks, learn about Chinese New Year celebrations, make moon cakes, and read 2 of my favorite stories – “Tiki Tiki Tembo,” and “The Seven Chinese Sisters.”Gong hay fat choy!

Important Dates:

Snack: Yip Family – Mon/Tues, Feb 3rd/4th
Spencer Family – Wed – Fri, Feb 5th – 7th
***NO PEANUTS OR TREE NUTS***
Valentine’s Parties: Tuesday, February 11th and Wednesday, February 12th. Please have your child bring 16 valentines cards to share with friends. Please only write your child’s name on them (who they are from, not who they are too). Otherwise it takes too long to sort into bags. Thanks!
*If your child comes all week you can bring 16 cards on Tues & Wed, if you like.
