Ms. Keri’s Toddler Newsletter
“Children become like the things they love”, Dr. Maria Montessori
I’d like to welcome all new and returning families to CCM! These first few weeks are going to be exciting but also can be challenging for each child. Just remember that as each day goes by it will get better! Building trust, making friends, and familiarizing themselves in the classroom and with us is top priority. We want each child to feel comfortable and happy when they come to school. This year in our class we will have myself and Ms. Del. For those who don’t know Ms. Del, she has been with the school for many years.This will be my fourth year at CCM. Ms. Del and I have worked together for two years. We are both very excited to begin working with your child each day.
This month we will be celebrating Dia de Muertos, thankfulness, and Thanksgiving. We will be doing a lot of arts and crafts surrounding those subjects. We will also be working on the Montessori rules for the classroom. How we walk in the classroom, carrying and rolling rugs, talking nicely, using inside voices, and handling all materials respectfully etc.
