The Red Room Newsletter: June 14 – 25, 2021



JUNE 14 – 18 AND 21 – 25

Our first two weeks were spent learning the routine, meeting, and reconnecting friends, spending as much time as possible outside, enjoying water fun almost every day, and visiting with and caring for our animal friends.

Please do not park in the circle part of the driveway. It is reserved for vehicles to turn around. The cars on the south side of the garage are staff cars so please park behind them, next to the big white van, or around the bush that is north of the circle. Feel free to ask a staff member if you have questions about parking.

Kinderfarmers need to bring a swimsuit and a small towel each day they come to Kinderfarm. Water activities are often impromptu. Also, be sure to apply sunscreen before school and we will re-apply over the lunch hour. The DHS considers sunscreen a drug so please do not send any in your child’s backpack.

Our focus the next two weeks will be on a beach/ocean theme and outdoor and indoor games. Ms. Casey is back as well!

MONDAY – Ms. Casey from the Iowa City Public Library will be our guest this morning. Be sure to ask your child what the theme of her books, songs, and games was today.

Today is Flag Day! With that in mind, the children will be making patriotic suncatchers and a red, white, and blue snack.

TUESDAY – The book Rainbow Fish will kick off our ocean unit. This is a wonderful story about friendship. After reading the story the children will make a rainbow fish of their own. Be sure to ask your child what we added to their picture that was shiny just like the one in the book.

WEDNESDAY – Kinderfarmers will be working on their letter identification skills this morning as they make a hungry shark. These hungry sharks will be looking for letters to “chomp” up!

THURSDAY – It is especially important that we all apply sunscreen before a trip to the beach. The children will illustrate the importance of sunscreen as they “apply” it to a paper person. Ask your child to show you!

Ms. Casey will be back again this afternoon! Was her theme the same as Monday? Ask your Kinderfarmer!

FRIDAY – Hand-eye coordination skills will be put to the test today as the children marble paint a seashell. They will also have a chance to practice their catching skills as we practice playing catch with a beach ball.

JUNE 21 – 25

This week will be spent playing both indoor and outdoor games. Board games, card games, parachute games, and ball games are all on this weeks agenda.
