 Virtue of the Month

Virtue Celebration


MAY flowers + superpowers! Your 2's crew is in the home stretch… and May is the time for a thorough review of the basics. Think motor skills, shapes,  123’s and “may I please?”

The children will be immersed in activities, crafts, books, songs and more. This is a magical time to revisit class favorites and intertwine the building blocks we have been working on all year. The last week of May is filled with “fun day” themes! Stay tuned as your child’s teacher will guide the way to “hooray!”

Your children have grown so much in just 9 months! They have developed numerous skills that lay the foundation of a lifetime. As teachers, we are so proud for them and all they have accomplished! There is nothing like witnessing the wonder in their eyes and joy on their faces each and every day. We are honored to be part of their very first classroom experience! Happy summer to all!


Phew, it has been a busy year in the 3s! We have had so much fun on our journey through the alphabet, counting 1-10, learning about the human body, our community, the farm, and blasting off into space and beyond.

We will finish out our alphabet with letters X and Y and number 10. The children will also have fun learning about dinosaurs. They get to experience hands-on learning with the Dinosaur Bragg Box from the Charleston Museum. It’s filled with dinosaur bones and teeth, materials and molds to make fossils and so much more!

We will miss our friends as they move on up to the 4s, but can’t wait to meet our new friends in the Fall.  


May is always a bittersweet month in preschool. While it is exciting to have watched so many children grow this past year physically and intellectually, it is always sad to say goodbye.  

Our 4 year-old children will spend the month of May working to refine their 4K skills and begin 5K readiness skills to include pre-reading and extended math concepts. This month will end with various festivities to include summer birthday celebrations, game day, dress-up day, movie day, class parties, water day, and more!  

Discovery Students will be wrapping up their study of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and Land Animal study. To celebrate our year of learning together, students will create a Hawaiian Luau complete with mango salsa, Spam, and pineapple.  


Since this is our last year at O’Quinn we will wrap up our time with a Graduation Performance. We will be practicing all month to make this a wonderful event to say good-bye with. 

We will also be finishing our sea life unit, learning all about South Carolina lighthouses and creating an end of the year book.

We have loved our time together this year. We are sad for it to come to an end, but we look forward to hearing about all the wonderful things this group of students will achieve.

Virtue of the Month



April, here we come! Your two’s crew will be puddle deep in learning about clouds and singing in the rain. Think raindrops, rainbows, umbrellas and more! The two’s tradition continues as we round out the month with “puddle day”. As excitement builds, we may hear children singing , “Rain, Rain Come Today, We Can’t Wait Another Day”.

April welcomes Earth Day and all of its treasures. We will explore the many ways to care for our planet. Woodsy the Owl has a timeless message: "Give a Hoot, Don’t Pollute". Your little wonders will learn about recycling and how it keeps America lookin’ good. Our Earth activities and circle time fun will be out of this world!

The children will be immersed in books, crafts, songs, and experiments that reflect our March curriculum. These include: brown (color), oval (shape), “Rain Rain Go Away” + “It’s Raining It’s Pouring”(nursery rhymes), and “Cooperation” (virtue).

Lastly, their focused skill is “holding a writing utensil”. Endless fun for a tireless two year old!


Spring is in the air!

Our preschoolers will be busy learning all about pond life and the animals that live there! We will learn about metamorphosis following the life cycles of frogs and butterflies. They will be learning about how April Showers bring May flowers, ladybugs and plenty of creepy crawlers.

Our letters for the month, Z, W and V, will take us through zinnias, vases of violet creations, weather and wiggly worms in our garden. With our number, we will create 9 tissue flowers.


Our four-year-old children will be in full bloom during the month of April. We will begin to sprout plants from seeds in our classrooms. It is our hope that April will bring warm days and we can begin to transplant our baby plants to our playground gardens. 

We will continue to recognize sight words adding here, big, small, and have to our list. The children are working to identify and write our diagonal letters at the end of the alphabet. Learning our addresses, writing our last names, and measuring in units will further prepare our four-year-old children for their big move to Kindergarten.  

The last week in April, the children will have a special performance for their Mother’s. Our students have been working hard to prepare by crafting, hand-writing letters, and remembering dance steps and songs.

Discovery Students will be exploring the continent of South America from the Rainforest to the Easter Islands.


During the month of April we will dive into the ocean. We will be studying all about the sea and doing lots of research on the creatures that live in it. We will begin learning about invertebrates, moving on to echinoderms, mollusks and finally vertebrates. 

After researching animals our students will create crafts, label animal parts and write creatively. We will celebrate the end of this unit with a surf seining field trip on Sullivan’s Island!

In math, we are working on numbers 10 – 20 and counting to 100. 

In reading, we are continuing to use our small group time to focus on reading and phonics skills. Our focus books this month are DandyMy Cold Plum Pie Bluesy Mood and The Boy Who Grew a Forest.


Virtue of the Month




Your two’s crew is “egg-static” about a 5 week month! We will begin March by revving up our engines, exploring the many forms of transportation. Think traffic lights, flashing lights and safety first (who remembers the “stop look and listen, before you cross the street” jingle?)

Our halls will be blowing up with colorful artwork as we learn about things that fly, and how the wind affects the world around us…windy experiments and sensory fun for days!

St. Patrick’s Day is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Your little leprechauns will make memories of shenanigans and rainbows, and even a possible visit from the green guy, if they’re lucky. 🍀

The children will blossom into all things spring: birds, seed planting, and more!

Finally, we will hop into Easter, and our much anticipated egg hunt! Who doesn’t love fluffy bunnies, chicks, and eggs filled with goodies?

The children will be immersed in books, crafts, songs, and experiments that reflect our March curriculum. These include: blue (color), diamond (shape), “Humpty Dumpty” (nursery rhyme), and “Honesty” (virtue). Their focused skill is “hopping on 1 + 2 feet”. Endless fun for a tireless two year old!


We are blasting off in March! The children will be learning about each planet as we soar through the Solar System. The children will turn into astronauts exploring space as we stop at each planet that orbits the sun and discover what makes it unique. Each child will create a set of planets to take home and share with their families.

Dramatic play centers will be transformed into space stations and rocket control centers as the children see what it is like to be an astronaut.

The letters S, M and U will be with us through the month with spaceships, moon walking, and creating UFO's.


During the month of March our four-year-olds will be learning to properly form the letters N, V and W. In addition to learning how to write each letter, children will learn the sound each letter makes and comprise a word bank to accompany each letter. We will be looking out for the sight words ‘an’, ‘we’, ‘he’ and ‘she’ to be popping up all around us. Can you count out 19, 20, 21 or 22 objects? Our students will tackle this skill together during group learning in addition to identifying these numerals. 

During the first week of March we enjoy the many works of Dr. Seuss. The children will then absorb themselves into life under the sea as we explore Marine Life. We are lucky enough to begin this unit with a visit from the College of Charleston Grice Marine Lab with their touch tank. Children will create a Marine Life book throughout the month titled, “In the Deep Blue Sea”.

Discovery Students will head to South America to study the Amazon Rainforest. Here they will learn about the 4 layers of the rainforest and highlight the animals that live in each. The children are always amazed by the many gifts the Rainforest has given us such as rubber, chocolate, medicine and more.


All month long we will be learning all about the butterfly life cycle. Each child will get their own caterpillar to observe and record about during the transformation from caterpillar, to chrysalis, to butterfly. We will read books and use our own observations to steer our learning.

We will also become inventors this month. We will plan out an invention with a drawing, list supplies, build our invention and then write all about it. We will culminate this unit by constructing an invention for an egg drop!

We will continue to learn about composition and decomposition of teen numbers. In reading, we are working in small reading groups on specific phonics skills and reading decodable and leveled books. Our focus books this month are I Am A Cat,  One Tiny Turtle Sumo Joe and The Very Impatient Caterpillar.

OLIVE JUICE ❤️ Who remembers whispering this, giggling because it sounds like I LOVE YOU?

Your two’s crew will kick off February with an Arctic animal grand finale. Scenes from “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” and “Going on a Bear Hunt” will fill the two’s halls with handcrafted art, including an actual bear hunt. Think grass, mud, rivers, snowstorms, forests, and caves… imaginary play with this lineup is a two-year-old’s dream!

February is also Dental Health Month. We are so excited to have O’Quinn mom, Dr. Laura Shapiro come visit with us and talk about brushing those pearly whites. They will be cleaning, flossing, and polishing teeth, complete with songs and books galore!

Love is always in the air here, and Valentines Day is a seamless theme. The children will be immersed in creating and mailing love letters, complete with songs, books, and more. Who wouldn’t LOVE that?

We will round out the month with Muffins With Mom, a treasured tradition in the two’s. Donuts With Dads was a huge success and the mommy’s will certainly be in the spotlight this month! After all, we would be muffin without mom!

Each classroom incorporates gross and fine motor skill practice into daily activities; the building blocks to body and muscle development, while strengthening their hands to prepare them for writing. The children will be immersed in crafts, songs, and experiments that reflect our February curriculum. These include: pink + purple (color), heart (shape), “Hey Diddle Diddle” and “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” (nursery rhymes), and “Responsibility” (virtue).

We are beyond thrilled to welcome back Grandparent’s Day! The children love sharing this special morning with their “Grands”, as they create a special craft, eat a yummy snack and enjoy outdoor time on the playground with them!

We are also excited to continue building Mat Man as we learn how to write the first letter of our name.


During the month of February, the O’Quinn School Fours will be continuing to count from 16-18 as well as working to identify and properly write each of those numerals. We LOVE the month of February as we get a chance to share Valentine’s with our friends. The children always enjoy sitting in a circle together and passing out cards they have signed with their own name! 

As well as counting into the teens, our math skill concepts will include expanding on copying and extending ABC patterns to drawing them independently. Spending time with the children while they make predictions and compare and contrast helps to expand vocabulary, as well as offering a fun creative activity. 

It is sure to be a fun filled February including celebrating our virtue of Responsibility. The children will focus on being responsible for themselves, which is an important skill for our soon to be rising Kindergarten students.

Discovery Students will be celebrating Chinese New Year while exploring China. From there they will head to India to discover Diwali and taste some traditional foods surrounding this celebration.


We begin the month of February celebrating our 100th Day of school! We will have a t-shirt fashion show and enjoy many activities centered around the number 100. 

This month we will be learning about rocks, presidents and letter writing for Valentine’s Day. We will learn about the layers of the Earth and the three different types of rocks: sedimentary, metamorphic and igneous. When learning about igneous rocks we will get to make a volcano explode and when learning about sedimentary rocks we will make edible conglomerate rocks. We will also get to make a birthstone gemstone out of rock salt, which is a fun way to end this unit. To begin our president unit, we will talk about a famous rock sculpture, Mt. Rushmore and we will learn about the presidents sculpted. For Valentine’s Day we were learning about letter writing and addressing an envelope. Each student will get to write and send a Valentine Card in the mail. 

In math, we are learning different strategies to use for addition and applying those strategies.
