  • March 2014 Newsletter As the year is rolling right along we enter a new month that I hope will bring some warmer weather so we can go outside once again with the children. We have set up a closed group for KELC parents on Facebook to connect with each other. If you have not been added to the group, please let me know so we can add you right away. As we anticipate our visit for our renewal accreditation from NAEYC and pursue our fifth star, here are some helpful websites to keep you informed along the way: • NAEYC renewal process for 2014 – visit NAEYC’s family website at • Ohio has a new website – - this website has information about all state happenings and SUTQ.

For more information, contact Lorrie Chmura, Kendal @ Oberlin at 440-935-0574. Below, Dan Reiber came to visit us in the classroom and danced with the children. We’ve missed Dan and were glad to have him back in the classroom to move and dance with. Stop by our Intergen board around the corner from Giraffes’ room. We have some great pictures of Japanese cherry blossoms that the children painted with our Grandfriends.
  • From Your Child’s Teacher: March is here! We want to start by giving a BIG thank you to everyone that donated shoes for families in Spain! We had 32 pairs of shoes donated! Thank you! We have finished our clothing study and started our study on boxes. The children seem very excited. When coming in the room you can see how boxes have taken over! We made dramatic play into a post office using a box as the big blue mailbox you would see at the post office. The children really love this space. They are writing letters to everyone in their families. We also have a big tunnel in the music area made from a box. The children are having a blast crawling through that and playing games like follow-the-leader through it. Our February ELI trip was super fun! The children got to learn all about their organs that are inside their bodies. They got to look at Stuffie’s parts and put them back into his body. They loved being a doctor. Our next ELI trip is not until April 2nd. We are still looking for parents to volunteer to drive their children to the April 30 trip to Karamu House. Please let us know as soon as possible if you could help out. The children always love these performances and we would hate to have to miss it. Have a great month!
