March is storytelling month! Through books, poems, nursery rhymes, and other forms of text, we explore the components (beginning, middle, and end) and important features (characters, setting, etc.) of stories. In preparation for our Special Shows, both classes write their own stories to share with families.
 
You are your child’s favorite storyteller! Through reading and oral storytelling, you are helping to enhance your child’s listening skills, introduce new vocabulary (including emotional vocabulary), and build curiosity and comprehension skills. Plus, storytelling a great way to connect with your child!
 
Our playhouse this month is a space station, complete with jet packs and switchboards. A lot of great storytelling and imaginative play can be overheard in the playhouse this month. We encourage you to come in and check it out! Below is a poem we have been practicing:
 
Put on your spacesuit we’re going to the moon
Climb around the rocket ship.  We’re going to blast off soon. 
Put on your helmet.  Strap yourself in tight.
Check your controls and instruments.  Get ready for the flight.
Time for your journey.  The countdown has begun.
Here we go, get ready, get set! 
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Blast off!
