Author Study: Laura Numeroff

Author studies feature recognizable collections that help our preschoolers develop a love of literature and reading, by allowing them to begin to understand how an author’s individual style influences the content of a book.

This week, the younger 3’s have been enjoying learning about Laura Numeroff!

Laura is a children’s book author of many favorite titles, including, If You Give A Moose A Muffin

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Wishing all of our families a very happy Valentine’s Day from Fair Acres!

At a very early age, children recognize the power of poetry, and its ability to inspire emotions. It is especially fun to create poetry around holiday themes, when children are excited to make cards for their loved ones…below, is a selection of Valentine’s Day songs and poems you may enjoy sharing with your children that might inspire them to come up with some of their own beautiful sentiments. The three-line haiku (five words/seven words/five words) is a great way to start!

Five Little Valentines

One little valentine said, “I love you.”
Tommy made another; then there were two
Two little valentines, one for me;
Mary made another; then there were three.
Three little valentines said, “We need more.”
Johnny made another; then there were four
Four little valentines, one more to arrive;
Susan made another; then there were five.
Five little valentines, all ready to say.
“Be my valentine on this happy day.”

Staff Fun Night


Last night our Fair Acres teachers got together after hours for a little staff bonding. We all participated in a murder mystery party called “Death by Chocolate.” Everyone dressed their part and tears of laughter were flowing as we navigated through this game. A good time was definitely had by all! It is so nice to get together and have some fun, social time together. Nice job Ms. Anina for planning such a hysterical night for us. We are already looking forward to next month’s get together!
