Mrs. Soma’s March newsletter
You can find magic where ever you look. Sit back and relax,all you need is a book. —-Dr. Seuss
We will start the month with Green eggs and Ham, celebrating Dr. Seuss's birthday. Tomorrow we will make green eggs(omelet with spinach and turkey ham) and ham for snack in the school. You can send your child with a Dr. Seuss's book to school and can also dress them in any Dr. Seuss character.
We are learning about India, the children are very fascinated with all the animals and colorful culture. I have some Indian outfit for girls and boys which every child is lined up to try on, listening to different Indian classical music, smelling Indian spices, making sandal wood paste in practical life, knowing the names of neighboring countries of India, main rivers of India and talking a lot about Himalayas….we are virtually in India.
