Toddler Class 114A – Teacher Devyn
Newsletter – Week of September 27, 2021 Volume 1
Hello and welcome to a new school year! My name is Devyn and I’m going to be your child’s teacher this year. I love working with toddlers because they are so curious and excited to learn. I am so excited to get to know all of you! Every week I will be sending out a newsletter with activities and resources for your family. If you have questions about anything or need other resources, you can reach me over phone or text at (206) 306-8098, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is one of my favorite recipes because it is so easy! The texture should be soft and moldable. It can be messy, so I recommend making it over a tile floor or outside! It is super soft and fun to play with. Add some measuring cups, forks and spoons, funnels, sand toys, toy animals & cars, and anything else you want to extend learning!
Practice putting on a jacket independently and zipping it up!
Let your child try it themselves for a few minutes before offering help if they need it.
